0508MothersDay.jpgIn this post, Eating Our Words contributor Joanna O'Leary makes a passionate argument in favor of treating mothers to dinner instead of brunch on Mother's Day.

However, I'm inherently wary of the assumption that all or even most mothers want nothing more than a late-morning all-you-can-eat buffet. I'm even willing to wager that this assumption is actually an insidious cultural construction designed in service to a patriarchal, kid-centric agenda that permits celebrating mom only if said festivities don't disrupt the regular run of the household.
