THE DINNER STRUGGLE IS REAL
When both parents work, cooking dinner feels like a nightly hassle. This is true even when mommy & daddy know their way around the kitchen. It can also be a massive source of stress on your marriage.
Let me just say, I know what it feels like to start a business after being a SAHM….and still be the one that gets asked “So, what’s for dinner?”
Even when your days of being a SAHM end, you soon realize that you’re still the one figuring out what to cook on a busy weeknight, trying not to blow your budget on take-out, and grocery shopping to last the entire week.
Yep, that’s all on you.
This can make getting back into the working world seem overwhelming.
I mean, I just remember thinking, “How in the world am I going to do all the things that are important to me (like having dinner at home most nights) AND juggle this new career path?”
I felt like I was failing at both because I couldn’t figure out how to juggle ALL. THE. THINGS.
DON’T DO IT ALL
When I took a step back, realized I was approaching this whole thing all wrong. I had an epiphany. BOOM!
Instead of asking myself again and again “WHY CAN’T I DO ALL OF THIS?”, I asked, “WHY AM I TRYING TO DO IT ALL MYSELF?”
I had to decide whether being stressed was worth doing everything myself. It wasn’t.
So, I came up with a better division of labor at our house that took the burden of “doing it all” off of me—and I spread it around a little!
Now, instead of guessing and stressing about dinner, my husband and I both have a plan of attack each week. It divides up cooking, shopping, and meal planning between us.
Despite our VERY different skill sets in the kitchen (though he can now cook amazing food, he legit couldn’t boil water), we have devised a plan that works for both of us.
It all started with creating NO COOK meals that my hubs could “cook” after work with ZERO skill, ZERO time & ZERO energy. If any of this sounds like something you’d love to have for your family, then just click HERE for our FREE Rush Hour Recipes.
I’ll send it straight to your email & you can get everybody cooking this week (even if you can’t boil water). I promise, if it can help us–it can totally help you.
I hope this site is helpful to you & I hope you get something useful that makes your life a little less stressed, more full of joy & definitely freaking delish:)
