I cannot flipping well stand the fucking dinner time routine and it is so conveniently part of every. single. night. Everyone has their least favourite parenting activity and I am pretty sure this one is mine (shortly followed by bath time if I’m honest).
As I don’t enjoy cooking all that much – well not that nightly meal everyone seems to need to eat – I am constantly looking for hacks.
From menu planning shortcuts because menu planning is BORING and takes up so much of my sit down time which I get very little of in this phase of my life, to preparation hacks, to expensive kitchen appliances. You name it, I’ve tried it. I still hate doing the whole shebang so obviously I haven’t found the perfect solution for me yet (except quit or hire a cook but neither of those are viable options for our life right now).
So I still cook. And I still hate it. And I’m still looking for the magic.
Anyway, I’ll review some of the hacks for you and you can see if you think they will float your boat. Equally, please please please please please share any magical hacks with me. You might just change my life.
