Need advice: How to be better organized for weeknight meals?

cecilia | Jan 7, 2010 11:08 AM

My son is starting school in September, a bit further away from our home than our current caregiver. And I will continue to work full-time. Because of the change in location and schedule, I will have less time in the evening for dinner. I believe we would probably get home around 6 pm. And bedtime routine starts at 8 pm.

I need to get into the habit of more planning and being more efficient. Do you have any tips? I am thinking of the following:
- meal plan for the week
- wash and ziplock veggies weekly
- panini / sandwich nights
- slow cooker

I don't have a deep freeze and don't have room for one. So cook-and-freeze is a limited option for us. I also thought about cooking everyday after my son goes to bed so we would simply reheat yesterday's cooking everyday.

Any advice would be appreciated.
