FH has been working a late shift for years and I just recently started. I don’t get off before 9 or 10 at night, and FH usually gets off about the same time I do. Before I started working, I always tried to fix something that FH could heat up and eat when he got home, but now that neither of us are home, I don’t know what to do about dinner. Do I make some meals and freeze them? Find some slow cooker meals?

Crock pot has been my saving grace. I am usually home to cook dinner around 6, but whenever I’m not or have to work late I break out the crok pot. It’s so nice to come home to a home cooked meal. Also you can make a sauce on the weekend or a larger dinner like a roast so you have some leftovers. Lastly you could prep meals during the weekend and leave them in the refrigerator with instuctions so your Fiance could cook it when he gets home.

I cook a huge meal on Sunday that usually lasts into Wednesday (neither of us mind leftovers). I also roast a lot of chicken that we can eat the first night fresh out of the oven and from there I can turn it into burritos, rice/chicken bowls and chicken salad.
Green beans can be sauteed in about five minutes with some walnut oil and brown rice can mixed with just about everything and you can cook a lot of it.
The hard part is fresh salads-I’m usually too tired/lazy to do all that chopping after work and I refuse to use bagged lettuce (too much E Coli and salmonella for my taste:) that’s why I sauté or roast veggies in the oven. Really easy and fast.

Good thing I insisted on keeping my crock pot when I moved. FH is just a picky eater, which has always been difficult, but even more so since neither of us are ever really home.
