I'm a working mom who doesn't like to spend my whole evening in the kitchen away from my family but also likes to put decently healthy meals on the table. I also love recipes that make lots so my husband and I can take them to work for lunch through the week. I like casseroles but try to avoid the canned soup stuff that most of them require. Help me out here if you can! :)

    I have a fair number of recipes that fit your category (many nights a week of kids' activities and need to rely on the slow cooker / pressure cooker!). Feel free to add me.

    I have always relied on left overs. Had to retrain my partner as he came from a family where you didn't leave left overs. I don't have my limited recipes tagged as one pot or slow cooker but that's a good tag to use. I just got an instant pot and have did a general google search but didn't import what I've tried into Plan to Eat. Would like to share more of these type recipes

    I'm going to try adding some of you. I'm new here and pregnant with my 2nd while working full time. I could certainly use the help - thanks!
