'cause Mama's always got something to say....

I'm slipping into a meme habit. No, it’s nothing like a nun’s habit. It’s more colorful than that.
I can’t help it. These memes are so dang funny AND effective for promoting my dual endeavors--Melt & Mold and Salsa Mama.
I have run into a little meme-related bump in the road, however. It's pretty serious, actually.
Neither of my “businesses” (when Googled) produce the intended memes. For example, Google image “Salsa Mama meme” and you get this:
It’s cute and all, but that’s not the salsa I’m talkin’ bout.
Venmo is equally problematic. Shoot, the folks there probably think I have a dance studio with all the 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻 that keep popping up when people pay me.
Using “Melt and Mold meme” (not that I thought there would actually be a Melt & Mold meme, but....) produces this:
This does nothing for my Melt & Mold business, and only gives me mom-guilt for never doing crafts with my kids.
I was starting to despair over this meme-not-matching problem, but then [cue inspirational music] discovered a meme that synthesizes both worlds perfectly.
There's gotta be a bowl of chips and salsa juuuust off of RS's right elbow and surely he just finished stretching, strengthening and possibly foam rolling. This captures everything. Now I just need to have my graphic design team get to personalizin’ it for the Salsa Mama/Melt & Mold merger.
Until then….who needs salsa delivery this week?? Most orders will be delivered FRIDAY so your salsa will be fresh for Chief's watching on Sunday.
As always, pints are $6. Cash/check/Venmo (@Erin-Schneider-13). Want to grab salsa AND visit the best market EVER, come to Lenexa Farmer’s Market Saturday morning 8:00-12:00!
Dance on, my friends, and don't forget the CHIPS!!

Oops! Boopsie! Hoops he!
Imagine that you're my daughter, Sofia, and you're innocently plating your dinner. Next thing ya know, it's a pool of barbecue sauce. Woopsie* daisy!
More relevant to the topic at hand, let's say you're in your kitchen with a fresh pint of Salsa Mama and your favorite chips when all of a sudden you realize you can already see the bottom of the salsa container. Oops*! It happens.
Hey, the reason I know it happens is that I hear the stories--little mini-confessions--on a regular basis and receive photos of nearly empty salsa containers quite often.
You really don't need to feel bad, salsa fans. The salsa is low carb/no added sugar (thank you to my friends at Three Bears Bakery & BBQ who gave it the thumbs up!) and it's very low in calories. Basically, like Sofia's plate here, it's full of healthy veggies. 🙂
*Side note....You know that Siri and I don't always speak the same language, as noted in previous posts. I get downright cranky with her sometimes. For example, have you EVER tried to voice text the word "OOPS?" Try it! Go ahead! It almost never works. Today my hubby and I did an experiment. Here are the results, when saying "oops," or variations thereof, loud and clear:
(Cover your ears, kids...) Boobs
Hoops he (who says this?)
(and finally!) Oops
Speaking of "finally," let's talk SALSA DELIVERY for a moment. Don't forget that Thursday is USUALLY Salsa Mama delivery day. Contact me via email, text or FB! To pay by Venmo, use @Erin-Schneider-13.
