Spring time in my parents house takes those sweet, loving, folks below and turns them into fanatics.

Racing fanatics.  My mom, that stunning, attentive, loving and amazing woman who would drop everything to come to help me, will only do so, if a race is not on.  You think I am kidding. I wish I was but she loves her some racing and it is the only time she has to herself sometimes.  She takes full advantage of race days and closes her home down to watch amazing drivers, go fast and turn left.

My mama, giving her everything to her family...needs her own downtime 
My mom's love of racing has been around since before I can remember.  The woman pretends she is a race car driver in the car, she quotes race car drivers, she has a race car Christmas tree and she has been to several races and even hung out on the infield.  If there is a race day party to be had, she will be there, however, it is a very serious time and she will be watching that race, yelling at the drivers, plotting their routes and staying focused through the party while enjoying the food. However, there is one issue that my mom struggles with and that is heartburn.  All that party food can really cause some issues for her.

Nexium 24HR, the new #1 selling frequent heartburn brand*" *Based on IRI sales data 52 weeks ending 11/1/15 among OTC brands.
When the party food causes heartburn, my mama reaches for her Nexium 24HR Capsules.  The capsules are in the new easy to swallow tablets.  The provide all day, all night frequent heartburn protection.  May take 1 to 4 days for full effect.  Use as directed for 14 days to treat frequent heartburn.  Do not take for more than 14 days or more often than every 4 months unless directed by a doctor.  Not for immediate relief.  My mama makes sure to follow these directions and so do I!  

I thought it would be fun to throw a little race day party myself and invite my mama over.  I figured we could all get in on the action together and enjoy some good food, good fun and a little time together...even during her sacred race time! I prepped a couple party foods that could make her heartburn (and mine for that matter!) flair up a bit, so I made sure that I had Nexium 24HR on hand. I grabbed this at my local Walmart in the stomach/heartburn aisle.

I wanted some food items that were easy to cook, but could sit out and be snacked on as needed throughout the party.  I decided on some slow cooker Pineapple BBQ Spicy Meatballs, Spicy Southwestern Guacamole (her favorite) and a Zesty Italian Salad.  You can find the recipes below!
