What Do You Feed the Babysitter?

Every Sunday night and Wednesday night B Daddy and I leave our kids in someone else's capable hands for dinner/bath time/bedtime.

Our (wonderful) Sunday sitter comes at 4:30 and leaves at 8 - so she definitely needs some kind of nourishment from us. Almost every Sunday for the past year she's gotten frozen pizza. I now cringe inwardly each week when I (again) instruct her on where/what dinner is. You would think I could change it up now and again, but it really exhausts me to consider preparing a dinner hours before it will be consumed for two picky toddlers and the (fantastic! we love you!) sitter. 

Anyone else out there have a go-to kid + sitter dinner that I can steal? Any thoughts on what would be easy/universally loved? 


  1. one of your lasagnas, stir fry, verde enchiladas (easy to make before and freeze), breakfast for dinner- pancakes, waffles, eggs, bacon- as long as bacon is there, pretty much anyone would love it, pesto with noodles and chicken, chicken in the slow cooker plus a 1/2 bottle of BBQ sauce after it's drained and some hamburger buns and corn, sloppy joes, fruit salad....chili....and a steamer bag of veggies to make things easy... there you go.

  2. Nice new header!

    And you can always make a nice salad for babysitter. That's pretty easy.

  3. Here's a link to a page with salads:
