As you can see, there are some good options at all of these restaurants! If you have a little more time, consider making or purchasing family freezer meals. These are prepped by you or a service with real ingredients ahead of time and frozen. Ready to be thawed and thrown into the oven, crock pot, or instant pot. There's nothing like coming home to a cooked meal in the crock.

However you make it happen, as long as you're feeding your family you're winning this mom game! Keep it up supermom.
