My DH is like this. A brilliant cook, but is rubbish at cooking to a schedule, so what we do now is that he asks, 'what time do you want to eat,' and he tries to work backwards from this. Most of the time, it's late, like an hour or so.
The alternatives are that he cooks a Sunday lunch when an hour or so doesn't really matter, or he does something less complicated like bangers and mash or fish fingers.
What I tend to do on the days the DCs have sports, is to make a pasta bake or something that can be made in advance and microwaved.
Just like dh tonight!kids knackered.need early night,he said he would do tea,baked pots and cottage cheese and bacon,all stuff we have in.aiming for 6pm to eat,ready at seven ten.took so long cos he had to go out and get s cucumber and feta to make a Greek salad to go with it.he did not think to put spuds in oven until he had gone to shop come back and made Greek salad
