Our schedule is a bit more busy than it use to be. But one thing that has really helped with meal times is preparing one meal in a crockpot. I don't cook all of my meals in a crockpot but normally one meal is a crockpot meal.
Last week I cooked a Taco Soup in a crockpot. It's a dump and go recipe that is so easy. You can turn it on before leaving for work.
