I know there are some general meal ideas threads but my main issue is the days we get home from after school activities at 6/6.30 and have to start dinner. Occurs to me with so many families with both parents working this must be a common issue?? We have pasta one night and beans on toast the other! Or in summer might pick up cooked chicken and have with salad. Next term I could have 3 nights like this so tipping over into the more nights than not if we include Friday night pizza!!
