I knew I would be gone almost all day today, with only a tiny window of time for supper, so I got up a little early this morning and prepared a meal, then exercised while it baked. The house smelled delicious in the wee hours of the morning. Then I put the meal in the fridge so all I needed to do was pull it out and heat a portion to quickly eat before taking off again. My husband did the same when he got home too.
I'm not always so "with it" to plan ahead like that, but it was worth the effort.
