Have a No-Cook Week! Get together, cook and share

The chore of cooking family meals tends to fall to us women.  Thing is, it’s not that it’s just the actual cooking of the food is it?

It’s the mental space and time that it takes to

  • Think about what to cook
  • Shop for ingredients
  • Put away the groceries
  • Prep ingredients for meals
  • Serve meals
  • Clean up
  • Oh, and REPEAT x1,430,678 times       ……A week.

Whilst we all enjoy doing some of the things some of the time, cooking f0r a family is a relentless and (sometimes) thankless chore.  We had quite enough of it years ago which is why MamaBake exists.

The other pretty big thing with motherhood (it’s the elephant in the room) is that it can get a bit lonely or maybe you just don’t fancy small talk down at the swings.  Getting together to cook means you’re getting down to business together – it’s social, it’s fun, you’re sharing experiences of motherhood, asking questions of others, learning.  You’re creating a meaningful tribe of women with whom you will be creating bonds that will last long after the week you get together to cook and go way beyond simply cooking together.

If you too are getting a bit sick of thinking about what to cook this week and would like to have some time off , why not give this a crack next week?  SMS a friend now and start the ball rolling.  Here’s what you do:

  4. At the end of the approximately 4-hour MamaBake session, share out your meal with the other other mums 
  5. You will go home with fresh, homemade family meals for the week.  Stash them in the fridge or freezer for each evening.

You can still get in on the action!  But we’ve tweaked the original MamaBake formula for you.

  1. Cook your big batch meal at home
  2. Arrange a time to meet in a local park (if you’re a SAHM) or arrange an evening with wine and strawberry covered chocolates (if you’re out at paid work during the day)
  3. Divvy up each meal between you
  4. Same result: Go home with fresh, homemade family meals for the week.  Stash them in the fridge or freezer for each evening.
