Hi All! I have gotten many emails wondering where in the world I have been and if I am coming back. The short answer is that I have been entangled in lots of life changes and yes, I will be returning soon.
I recently became a card carrying member of the working moms club, so there has been many adjustments that come along with that considering my 4 year old has only ever known a stay at home mommy. Nannies, new schools, crazy schedule and a brand new pregnancy. Yes, ladies, I am officially 3 months pregnant. In fact, life has been so crazy lately, that I didn't even notice until I was really late. Explains alot about being so tired I can sleep standing up, feeling like my insides are trying to turn themselves inside out and why tears seem to be my standard response to simple daily challenges. Nevermind that I have been home doing the mommy thing for 4 years and now is when my next little blessing is deciding to grace our presence! Oh the irony...
Now that I am starting to get a better handle on life's new realities, I am ready to get back to sharing my tips in the kitchen and would LOVE to hear yours! We all know that all moms work super hard to take care of their families, but working mothers have a major time constraint in the kitchen(at least I am finding that is a big challenge for me). I can use all the help I can get(and I am sure their are others like me), so please, please, please, comment and tell me what your tips and tricks are to delivering healthy meals to your family even when you barely have time for sandwiches between laundry and checking homework!
I will start: I cut up produce when it get it and store it into containers in the refrigerator. At mealtime(or when I pack my son's lunch for school)I can just grab what I need to make a salad or a side of fruit and know that my family is still getting the nutrition they need, even if I am gone 10 hours a day!
