Every TV series has twists and evoke different emotions in the audience with epic moments, memorable lines, and characters that seem to stick with us for long after the series ends. Those are the good shows — the ones that make the audience associate with every character and relate. And certain series’ have the most iconic moms that are easy to relate to because they all fit into a particular mold.
The Blunt TV Mom
There’s the blunt mom that might come from a show that was popular some time ago, but she has left a hilarious memory in people’s minds. That would be Estelle Getty’s character on Golden Girls — Sophia Petrillo.
She and her daughter on the show, Dorothy, might have seemed like they had a strained relationship, but that wasn’t true. It’s just that Sophia was blunt about everything and had no problem commenting on everything in her daughter’s life. Their relationship was one of tough love, but it was strong, nonetheless.
The Dramatic Mom
Where would we be without the dramatic TV mom? That role is reserved for Schitt’s Creek’s Moira Rose, played by Catherine O’Hara. Throughout the show, it seems that Moira cares more about the outrageous wigs than her kids, David and Alexis.
However, when push comes to shove, she always comes through for them — although she seems self-absorbed and over-the-top sometimes.
The Working Mom
Catherine Reitman’s character on Workin’ Moms, Kate Foster, has proved to be the perfect working mom on TV.
Not only is she super relatable, but she’s also quite the risk-taker — she has shown viewers that our dreams might look a bit different in reality, but we should never give up on them.
The Best Friend Mom
We can’t go anywhere without the best friend mom, best portrayed by Lauren Graham, who played Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls. There’s no better feeling than your mom being your best friend and Lorelai and her daughter Rory show us how great it can be to have such a strong relationship. They’re honest with each other and could talk for hours — at times as if they were sisters. They treated each other like equals.
These are not all the iconic TV moms that remain the most relatable and pure in our memories. Some honorable mentions could go to Aunt Viv from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Rebecca Pierson from This Is Us, Rainbow Johnson from Black-ish, Carol Brady from The Brady Bunch, and Nalini Vishwakumar from Never Have I Ever. All these moms related in different ways and showed us how to deal with different aspects of life!
If you want an easy, tasty and healthy meal for your lunch or dinner, nothing can beat a burrito bowl. These are super easy to throw together to save time, as well as are highly customizable, according to your choice or convenience. For a protein-packed bowl, salmon can be an uncommon but perfect option to add. While seasoned with the right spices, this quick-cooking protein can work wonders to complement your burrito bowl.
Salmon Burrito Bowl
A salmon burrito bowl requires perfectly seasoned and rightly cooked salmon, rice, and veggie toppings of your own choice. First cook your salmon, then just get creative in mixing everything together and making the bowl picture-perfect!
The main ingredients for this meal are salmon, a mixed spice rub, and toppings. Wild-caught Sockeye or Coho salmons are best to use for their taste and bright color. 3-4 oz salmon filets are perfect for the recipe.
To make the spice rub, just add coconut sugar, cumin powder, chipotle powder, paprika, oil, lime juice, and lime zest in a bowl and stir well to combine everything together. This brilliant blend of spices provides a ton of flavor to the entire dish.
Now it’s time to cook the salmon. First, bring the filets to room temperature and pat dry. Then season them with liberal amounts of salt, pepper, and the prepared spice rub. Heat a little avocado or olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Then, cook the salmons for 4-5 minutes per side until they become golden brown in color.
Meanwhile, prepare rice and veggie toppings. White rice, cilantro-lime rice, or cauliflower rice will be great options. Homemade avocado corn salsa, black beans or pinto beans, and pickled onions can work as wonderful toppings.
Lastly, assemble the burrito bowl. First, make a bed of rice. Then add the cooked salmon and avocado corn salsa. Top it with Greek yogurt or sour cream or homemade pico-de-gallo. Then finish the bowl with a final touch of some fresh cilantro and lime slices.
