In the Kitchen with Linda – & a Life Update

It seems like forever since I’ve shared an In the Kitchen with Linda post. I have indeed been in the kitchen. My family sees to that. lol

 

I do cook different during the summer months. So I haven’t spent as much time in the kitchen as I do the other months of the year.

 

In the Kitchen with Linda

 

Back in January, I shared What Do I Want My Second Act to Look Like? I recently decided to get back into the work force after not working for 32 years. Oh, I was a consultant for a kitchen wares company a couple of different times. I am currently an ambassador for a health and wellness company, as well as working for this blog and on social media. But it’s been 32 years since I have had a regular, full time, work schedule.

 

I have accepted a job as a customer service representative. I will be working full time from home answering calls. This is for a legit company that I had to do the same pre-employment checks as if I was working on-site for a company. Drug test, background check, etc. (Yes, I passed both. lol)

 

It’s going to be an adjustment for my husband and our one remaining under 18, homeschooling, son. I will be working afternoons & evenings. We are still homeschooling. I will still have plenty of time to homeschool him. He mostly works independently anyway.

 

What does this life update have to do with being in the kitchen?

 

Well, I now need your help! What are some quick and easy, nutritious meals that my meat and potatoes husband and prefers fast food teenager will like?

 

I’ve got the meat and potatoes in the slow cooker covered. And the fries and chicken strips in the oven covered. lol

 

So please share your ideas for meals that can either be made ahead, put in the slow cooker, or would be super easy for my husband & son to put together.

 

A big thank you for sharing ideas with me!
