Dinner-time used to be a nightmare in our house with a 5 year old and a 3 year old hungry after school and a husband that doesn’t get in until early evening; who prefers to get cleaned up before eating. I found myself cooking two separate meals and having to think of what I could cook which didn’t involve meat as I hadn’t thawed anything from freezer and I didn’t need to pop to the shop for extra ingredients.

It was when I started combining meal planning and using my slow cookers that it all got so much easier.

Don’t get me wrong sometimes I still mess it up and forget to defrost meat but I just switch my days around.
