What do working moms make for dinner?
I saw this post by Amy Graff on the Baby Centre website and it made me think about what other working mom’s do to get dinner on the table at a decent hour.
While I don’t make the same meal 5 days in a row (genius idea but I’m not sure I could stomach it!) I do have a few shortcuts and multitask like crazy.
Once I’ve finished work, fetched the kids and got home its usually around 6pm. So I need to wash & sterilise bottles, run a bath, entertain the kids and cook simultaneously. Some nights I am smart and have something in the slow cooker ready for me to just add rice/couscous and serve but most nights I end up trying to find the fastest possible meal so we can get fed, bathed and doing the bedtime routine.
This evening was corn on the cob and cheese on toast. Hardly a meal! Favourite fast meals are pies (thank heavens for ready-made puff pastry), macaroni cheese, spaghetti bolognaise, bangers & mash… I really need to add to my repertoire.
