It takes no time at all to whip up a simple meal for you and your family. To help ourselves manage our time during the week, on the weekend my mother and I cut up a container of onions, peppers, and various veggies. When you need some, grab a handful and throw it into whatever you're making. Fresh sauteed onions for pierogies, a quick salad or stirfry, soup fixin's. Its there and ready to go, you've just saved yourself 10 minutes of chopping time!
Do yourself a favour and try a little harder. There's no such thing as "I don't have time..." when it comes to cooking.
