Thanks to you all so much!
You've given me some great ideas and I really believe meal planning for the week will make a huge difference to my stress levels . I just run to the shop with both kids on the way home from therapies and end up she spending a fortune as I have no list, no plan, no nothing .
I'm going to make a meal plan for a week and choose recipes that I can make lots of and freeze the leftovers. My son just went to bed I'm now off to the shop to but some more containers and foil trays.
I let go of expectations long ago about being a perfect housewife , im far from it . But I try to be a good mum . I devote every minute to the kids and their needs, and I don't give a stuff about the rest like housework , cooking gourmet meals etc . But even still , it's just not good for us to be living on crap. We are spending far more money than we can afford on quick easy food and I don't know , I don't know what I'm saying, I am just drowning a little these days .
I need abit of order in this house . We are out of the house for therapy 4 days a week by around 9:30 am there's no time for preparation in the morning, freezer meals are really going to be the best alternative for me . There's alot of things in my life out of my control at the moment , even just having control over this small thing will help immensely . Knowing I have pre prepared meals and luck box snacks for my daughter will be a huge weight off my shoulders also . She's quite a good eater at the moment and I don't want to jeopardise that , especially as she's eating lunch on the go so many days a week .
Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to reply , I know this topic has prob been done to death on here .
As for the slow cooker I am shopping online tonight for one , and I just brought the TASTE app to get freezer friendly recipes .
Thanks again . I already feel slightly less stressed just having some direction .
