A Working Mom's Meal Plan
The hardest part of my day is when we get home and everyone is immediately hungry. I love to cook and prefer
home-cooked meals, but I don't like to cook much during the work week. And yet, dinner has to get on the table...
My solution: make-ahead meals, freeze-ahead meals and recipes so easy that I'll make them on a Monday. I cook
mostly on the weekends, always doubling recipes, and rely heavily on my extra freezer and a decently-stocked pantry.
This cooking style saves me time and money, and it makes my life simpler—so I can actually enjoy sitting down
to supper at 6 with my family. I hope these recipes will make the witching hour a little better at your house too.

Broccoli Cheddar Bake
3 eggs, beaten slightly
3/4 cup Bisquick mix
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup shredded cheddar
small onion, diced
small box frozen broccoli, thawed slightly
Lightly grease pie plate. Mix eggs, Bisquick and milk in a bowl until well combined. Stir in cheese, onion and broccoli. Pour into pie plate.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes, or until middle is set.
*Could substitute other types of veggies and cheese (spinach/gruyere would be good), or add cooked bacon or sausage. Serve with buttered toast.
