We are still adjusting to life and work in the city. One of those adjustments is the dinner dilemma. We get home much later than before and since we work together, we arrive home at the same time. What’s that mean? Well, previously I usually got home 20-30 minutes before Mark and could start dinner and be eating not too long after he got home.
Now? We both get home at the same time. Who cooks? What to cook? How long will it take? These are the questions that plague us. And all too often we end up going out or resorting to the frozen Trader Joe food that is supposed to be our emergency supply. Oops. Thus, the dinner dilemma.
It’s not that we don’t enjoy cooking. We do. It’s just hard during the week and after a long day of work. I need a few more quick easy no think recipes. Maybe we should each have our day or 2 days that dinner is your responsibility? We do cooking date nights, but that is usually a more elaborate meal and not meant for during the week. 50/50 split with 1 day eating out?
One of my favorite food blogs is Jaden’s Steamy Kitchen blog. There is even a category I found devoted to fast recipes. I’m doing some research. Her food photography will make you drool and bookmark the recipe every time. This one is making me hungry…
We need to figure it out. It’s been on my mind. But currently I get lazy when I get home and somehow never get to cooking a nice, quick and healthy dinner.
How do you dinner at night? Do you prepare in advance? Do you cook? Or does someone else? Do you cook together?
