So you work and homeschool- what do you eat?

This is another question I’m often asked.  You work outside the home, you homeschool, you often have evening commitments- what do you cook?  (Confession time, cooking is not my favorite activity.)

Sometimes, it’s carry out.  Truth be told, it’s often from the slow cooker at dinner.  I usually am up by 5 am each day, so that’s a great time to start the slow cooker with a soup or whole chicken.  Sometimes, I prepare something that I can start in the slow cooker when I get home in the afternoon so it does not over cook- things like meatballs and baked potatoes.  (I own four slow cookers, it not uncommon for me to have two on at the same time.

Today it’s Taco Soup.  I’ll fix up a quick salad to serve with it and that’s dinner.
