If you haven't already, invest in a crock pot. You can throw just about anything in the crock pot, set it on low and have a home cooked meal when you walk in the door... from bbq chicken to pot roast, to pork roast, to pork chops, you name it. Throw in some potatoes, carrots, other veggies, and a little water and seasonings, and you're good to go.

that is a great idea too, depending on how long you are gone at work, for me a certain days its like 10+ hours so I think I would ruin it lol.

my suggestion is to have a look at www.flylady.net where she gives lots of ideas on doing the housework, managing your time and cooking home cooked meals and she does indeed think highly of the crock pot. I find her great for keeping me on track with the house work but havent gone into her meals in a big way yet.

Wonderful things like Hormel for kids... microwave 30 sec and stir, mine loves them! Or the gerber graduates, I guess depends on how old your child is. Go-tarts are saviors for a snack too.

It takes some time on the weekends, and a lot of organizing, but try cooking meals for the week on one day. Then you just have to heat and serve. Plan out a menu, get the ingredients together and spend an afternoon cooking.
