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.

1 package of instant pudding—chocolate, vanilla or whatever sound good
2 cups milk
1/2 cup cream
1/2 cup sugar
Whisk together ingredients in a large bowl until well combined—kids love to do this part. Pour into popsicle molds or paper cups (cover tops with foil), then insert sticks. Freeze until set.
*You can add other mix-ins like cut-up fruit, crushed cookies, mini-marshmallows etc. Go wild!
