Breakfast or Brunch are naturals for Mother’s Day and Oliver’s has everything you need to serve up a memorable celebratory meal.
Let’s start with festive libations. In addition to Oliver’s Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice, we are featuring some great sparkling wines for Mimosas in this week’s ad, plus we rounded up this delicious Heirloom Tomato Bloody Mary recipe to get your celebration off to a great start.
Next comes some fresh, ripe berries or other fresh fruit, perhaps a tasty green salad, some crusty local bread, and you can keep things easy and delicious with our house made Quiche or Scones, available in several varieties, or you can prepare this Savory Brunch Strata, OR this French Toast Bake with Berries to move your menu in a sweeter direction.
Dessert options from our Bakery department are fairly endless, but whether you choose individual desserts, or a house made Cake or Cheesecake, there is no bad option!
A Sonoma-Style Picnic
Pack a basket full of delicious and easy options (Don’t forget the wine opener!) and head out in any direction in Sonoma County. So many locations await, from beach to vineyards to Redwoods. The choice is hers!
Pro Tip: While you are at Oliver’s you can also pick up a Sonoma County Parks Pass and enjoy our local parks with a gift for Mom that works all year long!
The Brillat Savarin and Matin des Pyrenees Rose Petal Confit from this week’s ad paired with your favorite sparkling wine would make a glorious beginning of any picnic. Grab delicious crackers and other accoutrements from our Gourmet Cheese department, including local, domestic or imported charcuteries and other cheeses. If you are seeking heartier picnic fare, how about a prepared salad or two and Panini sandwiches from our Deli?
Grab some beautiful strawberries, Oliver’s Own freshly baked cookies, or perhaps some locally made VOLO chocolate, and your picnic will have a sweet finish.
Mother’s Day Dinner
Dinner is also a great time to celebrate Mother’s Day, and avoiding restaurants on the busiest day of the year is a good strategy. Oliver’s has everything you need for your special dinner, whether you want to cook it all yourself, or prefer to grab a couple prepared items and focus on cooking just a few things yourself.
Featured this week at special pricing are our Oliver’s Choice 100% Angus Beef Filet Mignon and Wild Caught Lobster Tails. A perfect Surf & Turf dinner for Mom is in the bag!
Along with your favorite vegetable or salad, how about these timesaving options for another side dish: Grab our house-made Twice Baked Potatoes or Risotto Cakes from our Deli. We also have Oliver’s Own Soups galore, which make it easy to add a soup course to your meal: How about Crimini Mushroom or Carrot Ginger soup for a first course? Garnish with crème fraiche (or sour cream) and chives or a swirl of extra virgin olive oil and cracked pepper.
No Mother’s Day celebration is complete without a decadent dessert. Stop by our Bakery and pick up Chocolate Decadence Bites or Cake, a Fruit topped Cheesecake, or elegant Chocolate Mousse Cups. Spring is also a great time for a simple Blueberry Lemon Trifle made with fresh whipped cream, Lemon Curd, cubed Angel’s Food (or Pound) Cake and fresh berries (Organic Blueberries are featured in this week’s ad.).
One way or another, we hope you will find inspiration for celebrating Mother’s Day – and the women who helped you become who you are — with a memorable meal with a little help from Oliver’s Market. Cheers!
