I have a solid supply of lunchbox snacks for everyday so I dont have to run to the store if we are suddenly called upon to bring snacks for sports/ scouts

I used to be much better about cooking ahead but now dh does most of the cooking so we eat a lot of meat on the grill with sides

I've always wanted to try this, but DH does the cooking, and he never wanted to.  However, now with his new job, dinner will likely fall back to me (he used to work 5:00am-1:00pm so he had more time to cook dinner - now he's off at 5:00pm).

So - what are some of the best things to cook in bulk - and do you have details/recipes/etc.?

Some things get better the longer you wait such as chili, soups and stew. Shepherds pie and pastas can make a lot. You can make a large salad to last a few days. You could also cook a lot of chicken that can be used in different meals like on salad, in pasta, on sandwiches, etc.

REview the morning schedule with your younglings the night before, and keep them updated with the time in the morning, countdown the minutes.

Competative souls = make it a fun competition to see who can be waiting in the car first.

Pack the night before of course

Freeze waffles, muffins, mini egg quiches for quick breakfast.

Dinner everynight as a family, if you have to skip due to activities, re-convene prior to bed or sometime as a whole unit to connect perhaps for dessert (fruit) or a storytime.

At least several times a week, tell your children specific instances when you were very proud to be their mother. Sometimes I get so busy, disciplining, working, cooking, cleaning........I want them to know I am always watching them...................

I plan out my out-fits on Sunday, so I know laundry, ironing is done. Shoes are found, etc..... so my morning are a little less stressful.
