What’s Cooking?


This is the post where I admit that life kinda sorta is really, really hard when both parents work outside the home.

Shocking, I know.  Alert the press.

I knew in theory working outside the house would be much different then working from home schedule-wise.  I’m not an idiot. But until last week when that theory became reality I didn’t know how very good we had it when I was working from home. Specifically when it came to our evening routine- homework, dinner, baths, bed, etc.  We had pizza twice last week, McDonald’s once and Scorch had two days where he did his homework at 6 am because we didn’t get to it the night before.  Now, last week was an especially chaotic week as we had the extra bonus of having something going on every night- but still, that’s bad.

So, in the hopes of getting some of control on our lives, I made 3 dinners tonight for the rest of the week. Again- not earth shattering as I know people have been doing this forever, but for us it’s huge. I normally fly by the seat of my pants with dinners but that’s a thing of the past.

This is where I need your help! If you have an tried and true recipes I can use for freezer meals when I cook on Sundays, I’d love to know about them.  Chicken, beef or fish- we’ll give ’em all a shot!

  1. I’m so with you on this! The hubs and I have had 2-3 mtgs. each for the past couple months! I’ll Facebook message you an app I got on my phone. You pick recipes and it automatically makes you a grocery list. I just started using it and really love it! I try to prep and cook on Sundays and Wednesdays. We try to only do activities on the weekend rather than cramming things in after work/school/meetings. We eat out WAY more than I’d like or our budget can handle but it seems a necessary evil. If you ever want to chat feel free to reach out to me 🙂
