Mother’s Day 2010 was spent with the greatest mom in all the world. (You’re probably sitting there thinking yours is, but I beg to differ and I will fight you over it. *puts up dukes*)
My mom always dreamed of having three little girls… which she wanted to name Marcia, Jan, and Cindy [I kid you not]. By the grace of God, she was able to have her wish, and by the grace of God, we were not named after the three daughters in the Brady Bunch.
She first became a mother in July of 1984 but was too afraid of dropping her baby, so her husband took over the baby-holding for the first few weeks of my life… Her next daughter came out fighting and loving Mexican food in March of 1986 and last, but not least, little “Katie” arrived relatively peacefully in June of 1991.
My mom is the epitome of selflessness. She has always put her family before herself for as long as I can remember. The ONLY time she puts herself first is when we make her… even then, she can’t help but do something for us. There aren’t enough praises in the world that could be given to justify everything she is, stands for, and has done for our family.
Last Mother’s Day, I started a little tradition of cooking her one of her favorite meals and continued it this year… dad was none-to-pleased either year but he gets his turn on Father’s Day. Below are the two things I cooked for her this year. Both were super fun, delicious and relatively easy to make!
CHOCOLATE MOLTEN LAVA CAKE w/VANILLA ICE CREAM
To all you mothers out there, I hope you had an amazing day. Thank you for all that you do! And to my Momala, I love you more than you’ll ever know!
