If there is one reason I’m glad to be back at work (and some days, there is only one reason), it’s that it allows me to implement schedules and routines to make every minute count.
My favourite routine is our grocery night. We shop every Tuesday immediately after work. I know it doesn’t take the whole family to grocery shop, but C loves it so much. But that also means that we’re coming home starving. Fortunately, every Wednesday, I cook twice as much supper and freeze the leftovers to be eaten the following Tuesday. As long as I remember to take it out of the freezer the night before, it means just warming it up as we unload the car. And since it’s been 6 days since we first had it, so it doesn’t feel as much like left-overs.
So far, we’ve done chicken pot pie, shepherd’s pie, cheesy broccoli chicken casserole, lasagna and pulled pork. What are your favourite meals to freeze for a busy day?
