Since moving to the middle of nowhere, I prepare a meal six nights a week.  Almost all of these are made after a long drive home from the office.  The key for us is in the planning.  I choose one day in the week and that is “meal prep day”.   For example, if we grill steaks or burgers on a Sunday, we’re also grilling chicken and pork for the next two nights.  I also use my slow cooker at least one per week.   In addition to soups, stew and chilies, I have found that the slow cooker is a great place to make Chinese food.  Seriously, try that General Tso Chicken meal.   Love it!
