Busy parent Meals

master815k | Feb 7, 2012 10:25 AM

I work part time and have three active kids. They play multiple sports, etc. I find my self out of the house from 5-8 most nights of the week. I am home for time inbetween after dropping someone off/picking them up. So, it works out usually that two kids will eat at 6 and when the other gets home will eat at 7. Then it flips around the next day.
So, I am looking for meals that I can make ahead when I get home from work around 2pm. I make a lot of soups, casseroles, sandwiches, things like that which can be made ahead. I'll make a pot of turkey and white bean soup to eat later on, so things like that. I do own a crockpot and have mixed feelings about it. I probably only use it once a month.
Anyone have some good recipes to share? I am getting tired of my regular rotation! Thanks CHownders!
