It is officially Fall, which means holiday gatherings are imminent. I love getting together with family and friends to celebrate what life has to offer us. We usually do this with A LOT of food. I mean, it’s not a real holiday unless we are truly packing on the pounds, right?
Since we started living in Texas, most of these gathering are now held at my house. It’s great not having to travel across town with a bunch of food in tow, but that doesn’t mean it’s all lollipops and gumdrops either.
Let’s face it hosting holiday gatherings can be STRESSFUL. You have to make sure your house is in tip-top shape. You wouldn’t want Aunt May to be able to write her name on dusty furniture, would you? Then there is buying and preparing the majority of the food or at least the main dish. This is often an all-day cook palooza. Prepping, measuring, and a lot of hovering to make sure every is just right. And when you think everything is done, you find out you’ve forgotten to buy something or realize you weren’t quite hovering enough and something boils over. It can make your head want to explode.
I admit I do NOT handle stress well at all. It often makes me want to throw my hands up and quit. Can I actually do that? No, not usually and most definitely not in the midst of hosting.
Since I can’t completely run away, I like to sneak off to a quiet room. Usually, the room we have to send the cats to. Events stress them out, too. I sit and play with them and sip on a nice hot vitamin drink – Slower Cooker Blueberry Acai Tea – and relax for a little bit, gathering my strength to tackle the rest of the day.
This vitamin drink is magic in a mug yet is SO simple to make. You literally throw everything into a crockpot. Let the tea bags steep for 30 minutes and remove. Then cook on low for 4 hours and set to warm. It’ll be waiting for you, all nice and toasty, just when you need it most!
