I’m usually stuck on what to make for dinner after a long day at work. I find weeknights to be the most difficult to prep for. I leave early in the morning and I get home ready to scarf down whatever food happens to be readily available. Weeknight dinners don’t have to be so difficult.

Sure, I should probably make freezer meals and meal prep, but that just isn’t my “thing” right now. Maybe when I get back to making baby food in a few months, I’ll have the mindset to take on meal preps.
