This year I work at the building that starts and ends the latest. This means I can clock off at 3:45. I usually don't leave the building until 4 o'clock most days. The earliest I get home is 4:30.
Here's the dilemma: Hubby has to be at work by 5:30 3 days and the other 2 days has to be at work by 6:00. Even though there are 2 days, he has to be at work at 6:00, he has to drop Know-it-All at Kung Fu by 5:30.
So how do I get dinner on the table?
There are 4 ways.
- Tell Hubby what to cook
- Freezer cooking
- Slow Cooker
- Food preparation during the weekend.

You can certainly thaw your freezer kit in the fridge the night before. I don't because it takes longer for the frozen meals to cook. During the day, I am busy teaching so I don't always have time to call or text Hubby to tell him to turn the slow cooker on keep warm or when to do that. (If I tell him prior or leave him a note, it won't necessarily be done. I have to call or text him.)
Here are some great blogs to find slow cooker recipes that could be frozen:
