Working parents, I need your advice.
After five years of looking after little kids and writing from home, I’m back in an office with a daily commute. I love my new spot here at CF.ca, but I’m a little wobbly with our new routine.
During the first week back, there were slow cooker and freezer meals ready to go. Things went so smoothly, I even had the table set for dinner before we headed out in the morning.
Week two brought a dose of reality—there were forgotten wallets, misplaced knapsacks, and two minimalist school snacks because groceries were getting low.
My husband has a few signature dishes, but I’ve always been the main cook. Until now, I’ve had the luxury of last-minute shopping, so meal planning was never an issue. But now, I’m getting home as dinner hits the table. Yesterday, I prepped Skillet Chicken Pot Pie Crisp, but unless I want meatloaf every other night, we need a long-range plan.
So I’m asking: what are your tips and tricks for feeding your family on weeknights?
