    Hi 2CG,

    Good luck with the return to work. I had a similar adjustment just recently, restarting work after being home with a new baby, but I have been sticking to just 20 hrs/week still until mid-Dec, when unfortunately I will have to go to 32 hrs/week in order to still get health benefits. The freezer is definitely your friend! That and making something early in the week that you van have leftovers from later in the week, either the same meal or transformed into something else, with minimal prep of course!

    For the spanakopita, I have frequently done peas, maybe with some sauteed onions. I like this because the peas have protein which is otherwise a bit low in the meal unless you do something like add tuna or egg to a salad.

    Wow...some great looking meals this week. SC hope you're feeling better. Me...just crazed as usual. BUT big changes coming up. After being a SAHM for 13+ years I am returning to the workforce full time so my menu planning is going to have to take a turn for the pre-prepared. DH and I are planning a cooking session this Sunday to feed the freezer. For this week, though.

    Yesterday: Smoked sausage, cornbread from a box and carrots and ranch.

    Today: Spanikopita and crudite. When tomatoes aren't in season, coming up with a side for Spanikopita is always a tough one for me..Any ideas out there?

    Wednesday: Refried Bean Chili, tortilla chips and a green salad.

    Thursday: Re-trying a dump chicken recipe using cranberry sauce, BBQ sauce, onions and chicken which you serve over rice. If the family likes it we will make up a couple dinners worth this weekend to put in the freezer.

    Friday: As usual, take 'n' bake.

    Saturday: Still working the weekend job, so I'll be busy 6 out of 7 from this point on!

    Sunday: Going to try and feed the freezer with meatballs, gravy, taco meat, green chili chicken, maybe cranberry-BBQ chicken, grilled chicken chopped and sliced.

    Have a great week everyone!
    I did that 4 years ago. Returned to the workforce after 17 years! Really changed my menus/cooking. I yearn sometimes for the time to fix lengthy meals, but they have to wait for the busy weekends.
