My husband has recently started a job where he leaves the house very early and gets home late. While I enjoy cooking, it is more important to me to be able to spend time with my family before everyone is off to bed again.
I am looking for some dinners that I can prepare really quickly and that also doesn’t require that much clean up.
My first reaction to Tova’s question was Use the Slow Cooker!
It’s easy to fall into the rut of only using our slow cookers for cholent, but they are actually an invaluable weekday tool, as well. Throw the ingredients in the cooker in the morning, and come home several hours later to the smells of a delicious dinner.
As far as clean-up, we haven’t had problems getting our slow cookers clean when we soak them overnight. But to make clean-up a real cinch, you can always use the liners that Reynolds makes.
