I worked late till 9 plus during the budgeting period. Occasionally, Hubby needs to entertain his oversea counterpart in the evening after work. As such, usually, I will not cook dinner. But I will never forgo the soup. It is so important to us.
With that, I will usually pack two packets of rice for 3 of us (Myself, Yvette & FIL). And sometimes we can’t even finish.
Such arrangement will end up with less washing and cleaning up and it buys me more time to spend time with Yvette.
