I need your help guys. Seriously.
I have just entered fully into this crazy multiple kids in school – meaning way too much time in the car – season of life and it is totally kicking my ‘you know what’.
I don’t know how you all do it! What with rushing breakfasts, packing lunches, constantly making snacks, and then prepping and cooking dinner in the midst of all that, I am just plain exhausted.
And I won’t lie… we have eaten way more than our fair share of mac & cheese lately! My goodness, I feel like I spend 99% of my life in the kitchen. (Good thing it’s my favorite room!)
I am trying to get better at prepping things ahead of time, in order to simplify my life a little bit during this hectic season. Bure here’s where I need your help.
What are your tricks and tips for simplifying this chaotic season of life? (Besides running through a fast-food joint or ordering take-out!)
Packing lunches the night before, prepping breakfasts the night before, and getting crockpot meals ready to turn on in the morning are a few of the ways I am trying to improve the flow here in the kitchen.
But you know what? Before I got my new Maytag appliances, especially the big roomy fridge, it was so hard to do some of those things.
Even packing a lunch the night before was hard sometimes trying to find places to store it in the fridge for later. And prepping a crockpot meal was not even possible, since there was no way to fit the crockpot insert into the fridge until morning!
Even with all this room though, I am running out of fresh ideas. And my family is getting a little tired of the same old, same old. So…
What are your favorite crockpot (slow cooker) meals?
What are your kids favorite lunches?
What are your favorite after-school snacks to make??
What are your favorite school morning breakfasts?
Wow, I am full of questions today aren’t I? I told you I needed help!!
Please, please, I would love your tips. How do you stay on top of things when it feels like you spend half your life in your car?!
