Late days & Getting Dinner Done

I worked late today.

There was an assembly today and students came during my lunch for extra help so I wound up not having any prep time today. I had a ton of papers to grade and hadn’t done any planning or setting up for tomorrow yet. The sun was setting when I left work – about 3 hours after everybody else.

I find that I have to do that at least once a month and sometimes as often as once a week, just to stay on top of it all. The paper landslide sometimes overtakes me and I have to put in a few extra hours. I’m adamantly opposed to bringing work home – after this many years, I shouldn’t “have to,” although I sometimes break that rule, too.

But then I walk in to a hungry house and nothing is cooked.

Voila – the Instant Pot!

If you don’t have one, please go get one. I can whip up chicken and dumplings from frozen chicken in about 20 minutes. Even something as complicated as ribs takes less than an hour. And the bolognese I made today – out of this world. I’m happy to share recipes if you want – LMK!
