    Good idea on the make ahead meals! I start Monday so I'll have get started this weekend on that! I'll be going mon-thurs 6pm-10pm. I have 3 kids in elementary school and a husband that is not really domesticated! I spent today doing a lot of house work. Good luck!

    I cannot agree with the OP enough! I take a few hours every Sunday to make meals ahead for the week for the household. I find soups are great for packed adult lunches so I make two batches of soup (this week featured Potato Leek & Roasted Corn with Ham), one large pasta dish, bake muffins and/or a quiche and I prep freezer meals for all of the dinners if I have time. I have DH bake bread every other night since people love toast around here.

    Another breakfast tip is making Slow Cooker Oatmeal with Irish (aka Steel Cut) Oats - two cups of oats, eight cups of water, nuts, spices and dried fruit and it makes enough to nutritiously feed five easy -- and they can add a little dairy if they want in the morning. if you pre-measure all of the dry ingredients (one day vanilla almond, another banana chocolate chip, apple cinnamon etc) and set them aside you can make it someone's evening chore.

    9 tests in 9 days? Wow. I started my program on the fourth. We have about 3 chapters to read each night and then we have lecture the next day about them. Each day is making me love nursing school more and more. Is hen everything starts clicking together in your head it will flow easily.

    Only 3 chapters a night? We typically have 5-8 chapters of reading to accomplish each night. I've had quite a few very late nights trying to get it all done! Luckily, we only have exams on Mondays.

    Wow! Can you stop over my house, lol. So you have the oatmeal in the slow cooker over night? At what temp, and how long is it cooking for?
