Mother’s Day… that special time of the year when moms around the world are honored, recognized and appreciated for their unconditional love, unwavering vigilance and outstanding example.
This year, I wanted to surprise the mother of my two kids (my wife, of course!) with something extra special. Instead of the usual dine out, I figured it would make her more happy if I personally prepared a Mother’s Day “merienda” for her. Nothing extravagant, though, because I can’t cook complicated dishes… but enough to impress her, I hope (crossing fingers).
So, here’s what I did…
Earlier today, I pretended to be craving for something to eat. Since I can’t leave the house for no good reason (and since my wife easily gets suspicious), I had to take her with me to the grocery. We bought a few ingredients as well as some toiletries just to throw her off.
As soon as we returned home and just as I predicted, it was time for my wife’s usual afternoon nap (aka “beauty rest”). Great! This was the perfect window for me to prepare her surprise Mother’s Day meal!
I decided to prepare the following dishes for her: Salmon Cream Cheese Canapés, Spaghetti in Red Sauce (cooked using the Electrolux Induction Cooker) & Melon Milkshake (using the Electrolux Powermix SILENT EBR5050 Blender). It was a very fun and delightful experience.
