You can do it! Meatballs to get you through

I know there have already been endless viral blog posts about the end of the year and how we, as mothers, feel like we are failing and can’t keep up and are overwhelmed.  But let me just point out that those blogging moms got their blog posts out before memorial day…they were well thought out…AND they had pictures.

They can’t be that overwhelmed can they??

While I don’t even think I have the time to be snarky or witty…I must admit that the end of the year is completely kicking my ass.  How does anyone, muchless women who work, manuever the end of the school year?  There are parties, book readings, plays, concerts, and games to get to…and let’s not forget the very specific wardrobes the kids must possess for each of these.  It’s like a freakin’ parental scavenger hunt…with no prize at the end.

Just yesterday I told the big boy’s basketball coach that “No problem…we look forward to coming to practice on Thursday.  See you there!”  Only to wake up at 4am and realize that we also have a strings concert at the same time.  Shit.

And you know what the coach said after I confessed my 9 year old was double booked for the 10th time this week?

He said “I understand the juggling act a parent has to do with children with multiple talents”

Hey coach-I said we had a strings concert.  I didn’t say anything about talent!

So if you find yourself in a bind and need an app in 15 minutes or less.  This is for you.  And if you bring it to the right party.  Well…this time of year, that is talent!

 

what you need:

1 small bag of frozen meatballs

1 jar of marinara sauce

3 oz fresh mozzarella cut into 1/2 inch cubes

what to do:

empty bag of meatballs into a medium saucepan, empty marinara jar on top of meatballs and stir.

cover and heat on medium for 20 minutes

while the meatballs cook, place mozzarella cubes on toothpicks (one cube per toothpick)

once the meatballs are cooked, place meatball on the toothpicks with the mozzarella.

put on a serving dish.

by the time you get to your party, the mozzarella will be perfectly melted on to your meatballs.

serve and enjoy!

    Love it! I think we should start a May/June nanny co-op. something where three families share a nanny for laundry, pick up-drop off, or a cupcake delivery a day. That way us mom’s can have one less logistical event a day!! Oh, and in this fantasy, your amazing food would arrive at my door warm and ready……
