Family Traditions with Lipton Tea & Honey

Walmart, tradition, Family Meals
Lipton Tea has been a family favorite for years! Growing up we had sweet tea with every meal time, it seemed. Now that I have kids of my own, I try to limit their caffeine intake and only offer tea for special occasions or when we are entertaining family. I was so excited to learn that Lipton has come out with Pitcher Packets!

I will be honest, at first I was a little worried.  Have you ever tried instant tea?  It really isn't the best tasting drink on the planet. Really, to me, it tastes like dirty fish water.  Not that I have ever tasted dirty fish water.  AHEM.  While at Walmart a few days ago I picked up the Tea & Honey Mango Pineapple Iced Green Tea and the Tea & Honey Peach Apricot Iced Black Tea Pitcher Packets from Lipton. Being that I am on Weight Watchers I am always looking for new ways to cut back on calories. I was very happy to learn that each serving only has 5 calories!  That's awesome!

One of my favorite family tradition meals is roast. It is my favorite meal to make when I need comfort food, the food pairings of the roast, carrots, potatoes, onions and celery is just perfect.  It takes me straight back to my childhood!  This time, I decided instead of having regular sweet tea with our roast, I would make one of the to go tea sticks. 

It was so much easier to pour the mix into a pitcher, add water and stir, than to boil water, add sugar, add water, add the tea once it was done and stir. I was worried about the flavor, I don't particularly care for honey in my drinks and well, we know how I feel about instant tea.  But, it was really, REALLY good! I can't taste the honey at all, I really only tasted the mango and pineapple. 

One other thing I like about the Lipton Tea & Honey packets is that the Tea & Honey is made from real tea leaves and contains 60mg of tea flavonoids per serving!  That's great! Tea & health go hand in hand for me since I drink so much of it, now I feel better about switching to the Tea & Honey packets!

The best part?  The girls LOVED them as well!  Since the packets I purchased do have caffeine in them, even though it is a natural caffeine, I will still restrict them for the girls.  But mama will be on no tea restrictions!

Not only are these great for family meal time, you can toss them in your purse to use while on a picnic, while you are camping or any time you want #FamilyTeaTime!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

For Such a Time as This

You know when you find a group of friends and you just sit back in amazement when you think of just how awesome they are? I am SO lucky to have a group like that in my life. I am even luckier to have this group in my girls' lives.  It is so very important to me for my girls to see the relationships I have with these women. The way we interact and love each other. It is important they see that even though each one of these women are very, very different, we still come together in love and laughter. It is also important to me that my girls see the relationships that these wonderful women have with their families. I am lucky enough to be close friends with two AMAZING families. We do things together, as families, we also do things together just the moms and kids. I love that my girls see these strong families and know that these families are there for them should they ever need them. In the times that we l…
