Being an oilfield wife and juggling a fulltime job makes mealtime nothing less than creative and challenging especially when you are a mommy too! I will be the first to admit, when Daddy is away at the rig, I am 100% guilty of nights when cereal is what’s for dinner, popcorn is the main course, or watermelon is an entrée for two. It was not until I noticed my toddler picking up some poor eating habits that I decided it was time to “make time” and take my cooking (or lack of) and get back on track. Here are just a few of my survival tips!
1) Early to rise! I wake up 15 minutes earlier on days when my husband is at the rig to empty the dishwasher first thing in the morning. Crazy I know, but this keeps mealtime clean up even quicker and I never get behind!
