Set it and forget it, my kind of cooking! Our weeknights are piled high right now with errands, after-school activities and family evenings with everyone dashing out of the house. Sound familiar? So what’s the last thing on my mind after a long day? Dinner. Oh my poor husband – I can’t possibly give him chicken nuggets or frozen pizza after a hard day at work. So when he can smell the simmering apples and meat before he evens walks in the door – I know that I’m the super wife of the day. WINNING!
