You know those nights when you’ve forgotten to get the meat out of the freezer – or your just so plain exhausted from the daily battle to juggle life in the mummyhood. Those are the nights this crazy mama declares it Crazy Tea time. It’s actually become a bit of a tradition here – one we get a bit excited about. I’ve even bought special Crazy Tea plates and bowls – because a little bit of crazy is something to be celebrated.
How to make a Crazy Tea:
Step one. Open the pantry door and select a random variety of easily available food that you’d never usually consider putting together on a plate. Step Two. Open the fridge door and repeat step one. Arrange your collections on crazy plates. (Depending on my energy levels I’ll usually make a little salad bowl for each plate – just to make myself feel a little less guilty.) Step three: Think of somewhere crazy for the kids to eat. Maybe even outside – so you don’t have the under-table clean up to worry about either. Step Four: Congratulate yourself - tea is done for another night.
NB: Your other half may not react quiet and excitedly when presented with crazy tea. Refer him to Freezer Meals.
Do you have a stable easy night in tea for the kids? What’s your secret for crazy Mama nights? Maybe you could adapt ours to suit your own family and come up with a new tradition. Life is all about making memories that will last a life-time.
