How do yíall cook with toddlers/kids around?
I can only do instant pot or crock pot meals because of her. Or quickly throw a sheet pan in the oven. Itís frustrating to not be able to really COOK sometimes

So tonight we are doing white chicken chili with roasted broccoli and fresh blueberries with healthy oatmeal cookies for dessert.

Tuesday night we had taco pie and roasted veggies. Last night was leftovers (burgers/taco pie) because of swimming.

Tonight I am trying this in the IP - https://www.kitchenstewardship.com/s...er-substitute/ Sides to be determined.

I used a baby carrier and put kiddo on my back. They were happy to be with mom & I was able to do what I needed to. I remember doing it with a 6yo on my back one day.

Another option was those booster seats that attach to a table. I hooked it on our long counter across from where I was working. Kiddo could see me and do their own thing and be safely out from underfoot.

What kind of carrier do you have? There are some that are designed for bigger kids that she might like better.

The only way I remember having success was to prep dinner after lunch, maybe during nap or tv time, and then spend just a few minutes putting it together in the evenings.

But there are lots of options out there for ip. Maybe we could revise the pressure cooker section. We will be doing ip 3 days a week all school year because of ballet.
