Well, I have been back at work now since Sept. 1, 2009. And although I love my job, and miss my kids, I think the biggest thing I miss is having time to cook.
We have been forced to switch to Slow Cooker meals. And although have found some great recipes that fill the niche, it is not the same as fresh meals. I have tried to do some 30 minute meals, but when I am not able to walk in the door until 5:30, once I am ready and food is cooked we are usually not eating until 6:30pm, which is too late when you have 3 kids under the age of 7.
I think if maybe I could get my act together, I might be able to reduce the time, but this is me we are talking about and I rarely realize I have an act let alone, get it together.
So my family is obligated to live the life of slow cooking during the week. This works well for baby, since all the food comes out mushy and at time over cooked.
My weekends have become a blur of baking and rush prep for easy mornings and lunches. And since we are moving my evenings are becoming packign adn organizing time... Hopefully in a couple of months everything will settle and life will get on a more even keel...
For now a couple of blogs.. A Year of Slow Cooking and 365 Days of Slow Cooking.. are my friends and hopefully we will pull through.
