Taking Care of “Super-Mom”

We all know her…she works a full time job, gets two or three kids up in the morning for school, prepares breakfast, lunch & dinner, drives to and from school events and the list goes on and on – her name is “mom”. Let’s take care of this special woman in your life by pampering her on her special day.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  1. Breakfast in Bed – recipe below for a mouth-watering Blueberry Pancakes.
  2. No time for breakfast? Dinner will work great too – roasted chicken with vegetables, pasta primavera or baked fish are easy and delicious choices.
  3. Take care of her chores for the day.
  4. Give her some much-needed quiet time.
  5. Spa experience, send her to her favorite spa for a massage, manicure and/or pedicure.
  6. Flowers – don’t go empty handed! Stop in one of our stores for a beautiful arrangement.
  7. Homemade gifts such as beaded bracelets, pottery or a painting are gifts the kids can have fun making for mom.

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup blueberries


  1. Sift together flour and baking powder, set aside. Beat together the egg, milk, salt and honey in a bowl. Stir in flour until just moistened, add blueberries, and stir to incorporate.
