What should I cook for my mom for mothers' day?

I'd like to make something for my mom for mothers' day. I enjoy cooking, but coming up with recipes is always a challenge for me.
Some backgrouund: my Mother's side of the family is Italian and Sicilian, so the food should have, I feel, some strong Mediterranean influences. She's what I'd call a "meat-eating vegetarian". That is, she'll eat white-meat only, and the meat isn't the main thrust of her culinary existence. When she cooks, there's usually more vegetables than meat on the plate.
Oh, and since I'm basically living paycheck-to-paycheck right now, I'd like to keep the cost to under $30 for the meal, for me, my father, and my mother.
I know this seems like a silly question to ask random strangers on the Internet, but like I said, I've always been good at cooking, but bad on planning *to* cook....
