With work and the kids in school, sports along with other activities, getting dinner on the table before mid-night, is a challenge.
After a full work day, her children’s extra-curricular activities keep them busy for hours. Although a priority, there is very little time to cook a healthy dinner, or otherwise.
Recently, my friend and her mother came to an amazing agreement. In exchange for taking care of one of her mother’s needs, mom is cooking dinner for her daughter’s family of four.
I thought it was not only a good idea, but they were on to something. That something is very similar to a cooking co-op, and is nothing new. Creative homemaking describes a cooking co-op as a group of people who prepare meals for one another on a rotating basis.
Cooking co-ops can be made of groups of friends, co-workers, and even family members. It takes the stress out of dinner, and is a money ‘Saving Strategy.” With the right group, I could really enjoy a cooking co-op. I’m putting that on my “to-do” list.
Have you ever been a part of a cooking co-op, were you satisfied?
