I spent the last two months at my mother's house. We went shopping, watched TV sitcoms and reality TV shows (Duck Dynasty anyone? ) and generally just enjoyed each other's company and relaxed.
In my home, our meals are almost always made from scratch. I prefer the fresh taste but I love to go out to eat too and let someone else do the cooking. While at my mom's I found myself leaning toward frozen meals, quick and easy stuff like sandwiches, breakfast for dinner, and so on. It was so much easier and much less stressful! We made some mad dashes to the grocery store when dinner time got close and we realized we had nothing in mind for dinner and there was no time to cook. And off we went to pick something up that we could just heat in the oven. That's not to say that the food was great. It was okay. But it made me wonder if I do spend too much time and effort doing things from scratch and if frozen foods are close to what I'd be making myself at home.
Do you cook from scratch every day? Are there things you always make at home and other things you buy frozen or ready to eat? I'd love to figure out what I can do without compromising our health but spend less time in the kitchen. Or even be able to walk into the kitchen and pull something our of the freezer and stick it into the oven.
