This is late…I realize Mother’s Day has passed.
I still felt compelled to share about my mom and the activities from mama’s day though.
My mom is one of the most selfless people I know. She’d drop everything for me if I needed her to (and has). And not just me, she’d drop everything to help almost anyone.
She’s a fantastic listener and always up for giving advice. If you need someone to talk at, she’s your gal.
My mom is quite optimistic. If you gave her lemons, she would politely smile and literally make you some lemonade. She might even give it some rosemary or lavender essence, just because she likes you.
While we beg her not to sing, I do beg her to make me dinner. Her cooking skills are out of this world.
My BBLT for example probably would have been even more gourmet if I let her help. But it was Mother’s Day so I told her I was in charge.
She’s as cool as a cucumber, my mom. I love her.
Onward to BLT’s. This is no ordinary BLT. It’s a BBLT. Burrata, Bacon, Arugula, and Heirloom Tomato sandwich on fresh ciabatta.
That salty bacon with creamy burrata is the best. Then the sweet tomato and spicy arugula. Fantastic combination.
These were so easy to wrap up for our picnic. We brought the burrata along and spread it on right before we ate to prevent soggy bread. Perfection.
With a side of kale salad, watermelon, then homemade coconut macaroons, it was a perfect picnic with the whole family.
