“Honey, what do you want for Mother’s Day?” It’s a familiar question this time of year yet it is a question that I never know how to answer. If I were honest, I would say “sleep”, “a quiet bubble bath”, or “a day at the spa”. But typically, I play nice and answer “I’ll love whatever you pick out for me.” Let’s face it, most of us don’t need another thing for the house, more flowers or more chocolate (well, I won’t turn down the chocolate). Yet we rarely speak up and voice what we really need or want. Why? I think it is because, as moms, we are always thinking about someone else.
Do something for yourself this Mother’s Day! Speak up for yourself! What are the gifts you would enjoy for Mother’s Day? Would you like something that encourages family time? I also imagine something that would make your life easier and more organized would be a welcome option, as well. What if I told you there was something that accomplishes both of these?
A membership to Once A Month Meals lets you choose the recipes that best suit your family, along with grocery lists organized by aisle, instructions for your big cooking day and labels with reheating instructions. Does this sound easy and organized enough? The whole family, or those inclined, can help you prepare these meals on your big cooking day. A cooking day is a big undertaking, no doubt about it, but it is well worth the effort. There is no more last minute scrambling and running to the store for dinner. Your month is worry free! So now that we’ve got you taken care of, how can we help you with the women on your gift list? Do you have a sister, Mom or a special friend that would also enjoy these benefits? Wouldn’t it be great to get a few friends together to simplify cooking day? We have done all the work for you as we have created a few gift baskets of some of our favorite things, here at Once A Month Meals. One of the most under-appreciated cooking day essentials is an apron. Not only does an apron give you a place to wipe flour off your hands or grab a hot dish, it also can help improve your mood. An apron will surely put a smile on your face. It is feminine, stylish and helps you to feel like a true professional.
Another great idea is to replace those worn out tired old kitchen utensils. The tools that you use while cooking really make all the difference in the world. These utensils are a great choice because the silicone is heat resistant up to 600 degrees, will not discolor, is BPA free and dishwasher safe. There are a few obvious choices like a slotted turner, a spatula or a spoon. Also pictured here is an amazing tool, called the Better Batter Tool. This will easily become your favorite all in one tool. Let’s face it, on cooking day one less tool to wash is welcomed! This is a combination beater, spoon, and scraper. It can mix things up as well as scrape the bowl to ensure you get every last drop! Is there a classic romantic in your life? This gift of flowers is accompanied by a bottle of wine in a clever handmade wine holder.
