How could you have forgotten to prepare the lunch for your kids? Do you also belong to the working class moms who are always busy with no solid time for their family?. Your kids are hungry!
My heart bumped in dismay and I was asking myself how I could have allowed such thoughts to consume me. What! HUNGER…
Sometimes I feel confused and have no idea on what to cook for my kids seeing that we usually come back the same time from school.
yes, I am also a student and a working mum.
did I hear you say hmm?.. it is true!
One fateful day I came back just five minutes before my kids arrived from their school.
I was so tired and exhausted having talked the day with my pupils in the class.
It isn't an easy job working with kids when you got a handful of them too.
So what do I cook now for dinner, knowing fully well that I have some reserved stew from last night in the fridge.
Of course, I can quickly cook some rice or potatoes with it? hmm, but will my kids want to eat rice or potatoes as they are used to eating bread more than cooked meals?.
That is what the school system taught them here.
I was still lost in thought and contemplation when my son suddenly buzzed me…“Mom, I’m HUNGRY!, what are we eating now?”.
Eh hmm, wait, I want to cook us some rice and there is stew in the fridge so we can eat them together…what about that?
He agreed and ran to tell his older siblings. That was how my evening was saved that day.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not really a foodie. Don’t get me wrong here,
I love food, and I don’t mind cooking, especially when it comes to Ukwa [breadfruit] one of my favourite dishes,
African dishes but I'm gradually getting used to the German dishes because I live here in Germany. ”
Most of the time, in the midst of a busy day or week, I just want food that is healthy and tastes delicious,
cooks up fast, doesn’t use a ton of dishes and that's simple and doesn't cost many ingredients.
I love storing my food in the freezer so I don't need to work myself up each time thinking what the family will eat.
In fact, Freezer cooking is a life saver for the busy, stressed out home Chef who is struggling to keep up with kids’ schedules, work schedules and all the insanity that life throws at you.
