Top 10 Things to do While Dinner's in the Oven

I'm busy. You're busy. We're all so ... darn ... busy!

You might think you don't have time to heat and serve a casserole on a busy weeknight. After all, it takes time to preheat the oven and warm up dinner, even if it's a fully cooked, pre-made casserole.

But remember ... You can multi-task while dinner's in the oven!

So, in defense of slow food ... and in favor of multitasking, here are the Top 10 Things to do While Dinner's in the Oven:

10) Read a book or magazine.
9) Catch up on the day's news and social media updates.
8) Call, email or text a friend.
7) Exercise.
6) Have the kids do their homework, set the table -- or both!
5) Enjoy a cocktail, glass of wine or ice-cold soda pop.
4) Watch something in your DVR.
3) Give the baby/dog a bath.
2) Work on your hobby or start one (knitting, woodworking, doing jigsaw puzzles, etc.)
1) Sit down, put up your feet and RELAX!

Life is better when you delegate dinner!
