I have the hardest time making dinner with both kids, especially since Willow does most of her longer naps in the morning/mid-day. And if I have to deal with raw chicken, forget about it. Once I get it on my hands, in the sink, on the counters, I won’t touch the kids at all until everything is cleaned up and disinfected. It is such a hassle! Nate isn’t always home while I am cooking.
Soooo last night, after the kids went to bed, I got the chicken breasts out of the fridge and decided I was going to marinate the the chicken over-night and get the bread crumb mixture ready to go for today. After I got Willow down for her nap this morning, I prepared the chicken and put it in the oven! It will be ready in an hour haha. I work tonight, which is another reason why cooking it now is great, because I have something to take to work and my family has a nice cooked meal to eat!
I think I might keep doing this, atleast getting everything prepared the night before or in the morning, so that all I have to do is pop it in the oven around dinner time. I am willing to do anything to make managing the kids easier in the evenings!
