And so it begins...

I am no different than many of you.  

I'm a full-time working mother and wife who strives to put dinner on the table seven days a week.  But, let's be honest, it's tough!  I work 40+ hours a week with a commute that can take up to two hours one way.  And all I want to do when I get home is hang out with my boys.  The last thing I want to think about is "what's for dinner."  So...I plan ahead.  What does that mean?  It means creating a menu, buying in bulk, filling my chest freezer and working my slow cooker to death.  And by doing this, I am able to put dinner on the table at least five nights a week, sometimes even six.

I'm not saying it is easy, because it's not.  But the alternative is eating out, or ordering in, which is expensive and unhealthy.  So, after some prodding from friends, I've decided to create this blog so that other working moms (or whoever) can maybe start planning ahead, saving money and eating a balanced meal each night.
