For Mom!

This week it's all about pampering the Mom in your life!  Whether you chose to honor your own Mom, yourself, or spoil someone who is "like a Mom".  There are so many ways to celebrate the important women in our life.

Some mothers like to live it up with a few cocktails.  Margaritas, daiquiris, and other fruity concoctions. 
Some mothers like to nibble here and there.  Small bites, snacks, and lots of tasty finger foods. Dips, chips, salsas, and other fun handheld treats likes quesadillas, taquitos, and flautas.
Some mothers like to go all out, making everything from scratch, for a real home-cooked comfort meal. 
And then there are some mothers who just look forward to the end of the meal so they can have dessert.
How do you chose to indulge Mom, yourself, or your special someone?  Make and post your dish on or by Sunday, May 13th.  Don't forget to link up with Mr. Linky below so we can all see your fantastic creation.  Please remember to leave a comment after linking so that we're sure to see your post as soon as it goes up.
