Why does it seem such a chore most days he works to get a meal completed? I cook for four adults in my house. It’s really not a big difference any day of the week. Yet if he’s at work I can almost guarantee that dinner time will be odd.
Right now we’re in the middle of another 24 day challenge so I’m being really good about food. I’ve also noticed the poor eating habits the teens have as I’ve let them slack. This is exactly how and when bad habits are formed. I have to change the habits in a positive way. Not easy with teens that could go cranky at any time for no reason lol
I tend to cook plenty of food when I make a meal. 1) I like leftovers for hubby and I for lunch 2) This way I can send food with him to work. Depending on the shift they may not have time to eat or they may have to snag what they can. 3) The kids and I have the leftovers on the nights he’s working.
Last night I made stir fry and it worked out well. Non-stop running so stir fry is quick and still healthy. I made a ton of it so I’ll be freezing some for later use. That is what I really love to do. Fill the freezer so I don’t have to worry about it. Our chest freezer was leaking so we had to get rid of it and now I’m having to contend with just two normal fridge freezers. Not easy after having so much room before. It’s going to take a lot of relearning.
What’s your fav or go to meal when they are working? Do you cook or is it almost always takeout?
