    That is so organized I would do that but I find when things go in the freezer they never come out in this house.

    Lately I have been really into soup and so will make one and it lasts for about 2 days.

    I so want a thermomix and plan on getting one in the next 2 months. I guess then dinner will be much easier and not as much time needed at that awful time of the night if I haven't been organized enough to prepare it in the morning.

    I start cooking around 5-5:30 so the kids are all fed and bathed before 7pm!!
    We usually sit down to eat around 6-6:30ish depending on what I'm cooking etc
    If we aren't feeling hungry from a late lunch or whatever we feed the kids at the normal time and just eat later

    Whenever I can! Usually in spurts once DH gets home from work and can take DD. Ideally I would get it done during DD's afternoon nap but lately she's been refusing to have one. Also this plan goes out the window on days when we have something on in the afternoon, which is often.

    On one is the days my toddler is in daycare I cook 4-5 meals and freeze them. That way on days I have activities I just defrost and make either rice/pasta, dessert for hubby and a salad sometime but usually in the mornings. I also do my weekly baking then too. Batch of biscuits/ a slice/ cake. On my home days I cook in the morning during dd2 first nap.

    My baby cluster feeds 3-6pm so I dont like to have any work to do then.

    Usually 5 unless it is something that requires lots of time eg roast.
    Now winter is here the slow cooker will be getting a bit of a work out.

    I still hardly use mine for mains - what meal do you cook most often thermy?

    I usually cook at 4.30/5 and we eat at 6. Dinner doesn't take that long but I do the prepping then unless it's done during nap.

    I start at 5 and we eat any where between 5.30 and 6.30 usually closer to 5.30 though. Today i was organised and have dinner in the slow cooker though so it will be ready at about 5.15. I love to use the slow cooker and get it on first thing in the morning but it only happens if the food i want to cook is defrosted.

    People with a thermomix what do u actually cook in it for dinner??
