My dh is a fantastic cook - used to be a chef and so produces some brilliant meals. It is fair to say that he can produce something out of nothing!
I am not the best or most confident cook - I feel the pressure all the time.
I can bake and enjoy that but feeding my family is one of the hardest things I do.
dd is off to school next week and I have suggested to DH that I will cook 3 of the days and we will all eat together. Normally the children eat earlier and dh cooks our tea later This is a massive thing for me and I am stressing about it.
Please help me!
I think I will have about 45mins each day whilst lo in in bed to prepare.
'This is a massive thing for me and I am stressing about it.'
That is a bit worrying - eating together should just be a part of life, not something to get all stressed about - he's your husband fgs. And especially important not to get yer knickers in a twist about it if you onlyhave 45mins to cook. What can he expect?
Anyway, stern talkings-to aside, how about:
Home-made pizza - v quick to whip up dough in the mixer and a quick sauce. LO can help put on toppings (not sure how old LO is?). Serve with a green salad (out of a bag if necessary).
Shepherd's pie wouldn't take long to prep - do the sauce when LO is asleep and peel the potatoes, then flingit in the oven for half an hour before dinner time.
