Works for Me Wednesday: Afternoon Tea

In 2010 I started a new daily tradition... afternoon tea!

After my toddler goes to bed in the afternoon, I usually need some sort of pick-me-up to keep me from wanting to take a nap myself. I find that I'm much more effective with a little caffeine in the form of a hot drink. And something sweet. I usually heat up my kettle and brew some plain caffeinated black or green tea. I use my individual teapot and cup for one, like this, and sit down with a cookie, muffin or cinnamon bun, whatever I have in the freezer.

It's a delicious and much-needed indulgence that gets me through the afternoon. Sure, I don't need the extra 100-200 calories, but I'm a much happier girl for it!
