We are about to hit a super busy time of year. The kids are headed back to school in a few weeks, and soon we’ll have to adjust to a new schedule. On top of that, Jeb’s football season begins and Jake will be starting up fall swim team. Needless to say, my days will be soon be VERY long and hectic!

I try to simplify my week with a combination of cooking ahead and planning meals that allow me to cook once but  eat twice. This is the easiest way to make sure that I can get my guys fed on nights when we get home late. I can grab one of my pre-made meals from the fridge or freezer and have dinner on the table by the time to boys get cleaned up and seated at the dinner table.

It takes a little planning but it helps me survive a stressful week without a ton of effort. The key is being prepared.  I’ll often prep meals and cook ahead on Sunday. I simply package everything up in Ziploc® brand Freezer bags or Storage bags and label everything so that it’s ready and waiting. The labels are especially important as I can often get my husband to start dinner if he happens to make it home before me.
