Quick meals are my must do right now between working, getting the household in a school routine that works and just all the business that seems to be of our house. I have been working hard to get dinner done by 5:00-5:30pm. The kids come home off the bus tearing apart the kitchen in the hunt for food and snack was never enough, so we changed our schedule up. Small snack while doing homework, dinner around 5pm, hang out time, get ready for the next day time, snack after getting showers and ready for bed and then off to bed. It works so much better for us.
With that we need to have dinners that can be cooking while I am getting other things done, so we have been doing freezer cooking, I take a Sunday once a month, prep the meals, put them in to freezer bags and then cook them when needed in the crockpot during the day! Then there is no cooking to be done while I am trying to do homework with the kids. This Crockpot Mexican Chicken Rice Bowl recipe has been a big hit and it is sooo easy to make and has almost no work needed on the days we have it 🙂
I always make a few of these Crockpot Mexican Chicken Rice Bowl freezer meal to keep on hand. Everyone loves it and they are so easy, both prepping and cooking!
