It is currently spring break, which means my house is a little crazy and I don’t get a lot of sleep. Not that I get a lot of sleep during the week days! But at least I have a chunk of time in the middle of the day to get things done while Tot is at school and I can go to bed at a normal hour. Now I’m just a go-go racer, multi-tasking between cleaning, playing, cooking, answering the phone and topping it off with all-night work hours. Parents that have similar schedules know, you don’t get a lot of time to eat; sometimes I need a little something to keep me going.
My husband and son generally go out after he gets home from work and sometimes they bring me home SNICKERS®. It’s always been one of my favorite me-time snacks. I keep little ones in my purse or have them tucked away (and hidden) in the pantry. They’re great for when I’m hungry or run down. As Tot had explained to me today, Mommy is 24 hours just like his carwash. Well carwashes (and Mommies) don’t run on batteries!
I was out of my little secret Snickers, so we ran over to Target. Tot was on a mission to find a specific red Impavido Hot Wheel and I needed filler. It’s great because they’re everywhere! You can find them at the front by checkout, in the candy aisle AND in the Easter section! They’re shaped like cute little eggs over there.
By the time we got home it was what I like to call “coffee time”, which is the midway point between the morning and the time my husband gets home. This is the perfect time to have a little coffee treat and you can mix it up by making a delicious Almond Snickers Iced Coffee! It’s very simple. All you need is a blender!
- 2 or 3 Miniature Almond SNICKERS®
- 1 Cup of Milk
- 1 Shot of Espresso
- Glass full of Ice
Place the SNICKERS®, milk and espresso into a blender and blend until it is liquefied. Pour over the ice in your glass.
Viola! Now you’re ready to go!
When I’m tired and hungry, I’m just not myself. Tot is a bundle of energy that goes non-stop from the moment he wakes up and I just don’t have that get-up-and-go anymore. There’s not a lot of time to sit and enjoy a breakfast or lunch when during those moments I’m reading a book, helping locate carwashes on the Nook, checking up on emails or cleaning the dishes. But it’s not really fair to him when I’m grumpy either, so Snickers helps keep the “serious” Mommy away. Because if there is anything that Tot likes the least in this house it is serious parents.
