I'm facing a bit of a dilemma here. I work all day in an office, and get home between 5:30-6pm. I have to have my 2 1/2 year old son in bed between 8:30-9pm, so he can get up at 6 so I can take him to daycare. This leaves me between 2-3 hours per night. Because he doesnt see me all day, a lot of the time he refuses to let me cook,("play, mommy!) and by the time I can its too late to start something homemade. Whenever I try something quick and simple, hubby and him don't want it. My husband is a construction worker, so lots of days he comes home and goes straight to bed from exhaustion, so him playing with our son while I make dinner is a rare occurance. Does anyone have some tips for me? Or homemade recipes that are quick, and yummy for the pickiest of eaters?(read: husband)
Thanks in advance!
