Food Girl and Tupperware Man

Happy Hump Day!

I can’t believe that it is already midweek, so far this week is flying!

Yesterday, when I got home from work, I put my millions of bags from the day away, then started right away on dinner.  Since Brian and I both get home around 6pm or later, we are always more than ready for dinner to be on the table as soon as possible.

Last night’s dinner came together quickly, and tasted delicious.

I had about a half of a medium-small sized zucchini that I put through the food processor to make it into noodle-like shapes.  I then steamed the zucchini while I cooked up some Morningstar Farms Meal Starters with some onion and garlic  in a simple tomato sauce.  I topped the zucchini noodles with the “meat” sauce and that was it!  Dinner was served…and consumed immediately.

In order to really allow us to get things done in the most effective way possible, Brian and I both have our “after-work-jobs” mine being Food Girl, and his being Tupperware Man.

My duties include but are not limited to:  preparing dinner, packing lunches, preparing any after dinner snacks that may be consumed, packaging up any leftovers.

Brian’s duties as Tupperware Man include but are not limited to:  emptying out the lunch boxes, cleaning all used tupperware from the day, drying the tupperware so that I can use it to pack the next day’s lunch, cleaning up the dishes after dinner.

So far, it really is a great system, and although I don’t mind cleaning the dishes after I have cooked, it really speeds up the process and allows me to get out of the kitchen and work on other tasks needing to get done before bed.

  1. love your guys chore routine… seems so perfect!

    since hubby works all day and i stay @ home, i usually do all the chores. Don’t get me wrong, if I need something done hubby will jump right on it it.. but for the most part i do everything, which i’m totally fine with and actually enjoy doing :)

    • I completely understand!! I love tidying and cleaning things (weird I know…but it’s like therapy!) but since I work too there just isn’t enough time. It’s good that your husband helps out when needed too :)
