When cooking from scratch seems out of reach, do the next best thing. Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl explains how. There are nights when I really wonder who’s in charge around my house: me or the food. I’ll never forget, for example, the night I had a formal event to attend. I did my makeup and my hair, and then left the house to pick up the baby from daycare and the CSA box of local vegetables from the neighborhood drop-off site. I retrieved both my charges, and sat down with the baby to unpack the vegetables.
