Thank you Culver’s for sponsoring this post.
My mother is such a special person, she is one those Latina moms who puts family before everything, even before herself. She moved to the US in her 20’s and she has worked hard all of her life to make sure that my brother and I had everything. Now that I have kids she is the best grandmother. She always knows just what to say to make things better and you can always count on her to be there for you, even in the worst of times.
My mom is one of the strongest women I know, and I have learned a lot from her. She’s been through a lot but she never complains, she just keeps on going and makes the best of any situation. Last year the house we were renting was damaged by hurricane Irma. My mom took my family into her home and we’ve been living there for over 6 months now as we save to build our own home.
One of the most important things I have learned from my mom is that spending time with the people you love is more important than anything. She’s always doing nice things for us and surprising the kids with small gifts or by cooking something special. That is why we wanted to treat her to a special day by spending time with her and taking her out to eat at Culver’s. The kids also picked a beautiful card for abuelita and some orchids, her favorite.
We had a great time at Culver’s enjoying a meal together. I really like that Culver’s restaurants are welcoming and family-friendly and I really love their warm ambiance. The food is great and the great variety in the menu makes it easy to order something everyone in the family will enjoy. The menu is cooked-to order, meaning they don’t start cooking your meal until after you’ve ordered it. This means you can order your meals exactly how you want them, so everyone gets their food just the way the like it! We’re so glad we decided to go to Culver’s because it’s such a great place to celebrate Mother’s Day!
I ordered the Pretzel Haus Pub Burger with two kinds of real Wisconsin Cheddar layered with Midwest beef and crispy bacon, pickled onions and Culver’s Bistro Sauce. Culver’s burgers are made with fresh, never frozen, Wisconsin beef and you can really tell as the flavor is just fresh and delicious: this is the way a burger should be and the buttered pretzel bun really takes this burger to another level.
My son ordered the chicken tenders, which were crispy and delicious and my mom and dad had the North Atlantic Cod Dinner, fresh and crispy fish with fries accompanied with a delicious tartar sauce. My daughter had the grilled Reuben melt along with some cheese curds, her favorites!
We also ordered the deliciously refreshing lemon ice, I think I’m addicted! It was so good!
Showing mom that you appreciate her doesn’t mean you have to strain your budget, it’s about spending time together. Here are 5 ways to show your mom or grandma how much you appreciate her on Mother’s Day and any day!
- Treat her out to eat with the family, it doesn’t have to be fancy it’s just about picking a place where she loves to eat and spending time around the table with the family.
- Buy her flowers or better yet get her a potted plant with her favorite flowers, they will last longer!
- Buy her a card or make her one and be sure to write down all the reasons why she is so special!
- Thank her when she does something nice for you or your family, don’t wait for it to be a special occasion. Let her know that you notice the small things that she does every day!
- Give her a call or visit her just because and take the time to really listen to her and make her the center of your attention.
