Evening all My maternity leave ends today (boo!!) and I've been trying to be super-organised so that I have at least a few hours to spend with my baby by the end of the day. I have made a freezer full of different stews, soups, sauces etc as my husband was worried that he would starve when I got back to work (or he was excited he would get to live off take-aways and chicago town pizzas, I'm not sure which!) I was planning to defrost the meal the night before but my question is...is there any reason why I can't just chuck it in the slow cooker in the morning (so once it's defrosted), put it on "low" and let it heat away through the day? As I'm not a domestic person (I've astounded friends by my freezer full of home-cooked meals this week!) I'm not sure if this is a sure-fire way of making OH and myself violently ill. Thank-you all! P.S. Any other tips for the juggle that is motherhood whilst working full-time, I would appreciate it!
