Ideas on food

I was wondering what other moms do for busy schedules? I have a son in baseball and scouts and a daughter in soccer. I get home around 4 and leave around 5-6 depending on the practice times. What do moms do? What kind of food do you cook that is quick and easy?? I have picky eaters as well.
I appreciate your help on this.
Thank you

  • I'm thinking crock pot meals. Prepare it in the morning and it will be ready when you get home.

  • Cook rice on the weekends; buy cut frozen veggies; you have a quick stir-fry.

    Make burritos on the weekend (I usually make black bean and sweet potato), wrap in wax paper and put in a big zipper bag; the wax paper can safely go in the microwave; add some chopped avocado and salsa.

    Cook pasta the night before; add steamed veggies and sauce (marinara, cheese, peanut, etc.).

  • You should look up Racheal Ray's meals in 30 minutes. That may help you. Also look up some crock pot recipes. If you have a crock pot.
