    I like dinner ready for 5pm as that then gives about an hour after eating to do bath and get ready for bed.

    You do the curry first, then put that in the thermoserver (keeps food hot or cold for upto 2hrs) while you wait for the rice to cook, then serve it ready

    If it's a dinner I can't really prepare ahead then I start cooking at 5pm. If it's a dinner I can prepare ahead then about noon when the kids go to bed. If it's a slow cooker then first thing in the morning. I really enjoy cooking at midday as I also get to clean down and come dinner time (which is usually full on as everyone is tired) the night time routine runs alot smoother...

    We generally do our cooking on weekends, so mid-week, it is 15 mins of cooking only to re-heat and prep a salad or veg. We eat dinner between 4.30 and 5.30pm as the kids are starving by then. Sometimes, we feed and sit with the kids and we eat later.
