ABQ Mom’s Guide to June


Guide to June

Alright, mamas, you made it through. You schooled the kids. You made the meals. You held down the fort. It’s time for you to enjoy summer. And we don’t want to make that hard. So get your cutest maxi dress, find a summer hat, and throw on those BIG sunglasses. We want you to feel ALL the summer vibes. Whether you are finding something virtually for the kiddos today, celebrating a silly holiday, or you’re putting your brave on and taking them out, we’ve got ya. Let the good times roll.

Thank you to Blake’s Lotaburger for bringing us this guide.

Have you tried their new chicken sandwiches yet? They both feature two lightly breaded, high-quality chicken tenderloins on a gourmet bun.

The Blake’s Chicken Sandwich has pickles and Blake’s sauce, a downright delicious proprietary sauce infused with Blake’s own Hatch green chile.

The Ranch Chicken Sandwich is a great option for people who don’t like anything spicy. It has pickled onions and ranch dressing.

Now you have one meal planned for the week!
