LO has been having a mix of finger foods and puree sine around 7mths.
We probably do around 90% table foods now, and save the purees for when we're out and about and her making a huge mess in a highchair isn't an option.
She eats what we eat (or a slight variation of it) When I go back to work I'll try and cook a day ahead, so that when I'm walking in the door from work I can just pull a meal out of the fridge. On Sunday I might do something like chicken burgers and a chicken pasta for the next night, or I might make a roast which gives me meals for 2 days.
Or if I do double quantities, I freeze enough for all of us. So basically any meal like pasta, casseroles, stir frys, lasagne, quiche that will freeze works.
ETA: Also if it's a matter of needing a quick meal for the baby while you worry about you and DH later, I sometimes do quick things like: a mix of Tinned tuna, some toast, a boiled egg, grated cheese, and cooked frozen vege, with some fruit and yoghurt afterwards. It might not be a "dinner" but I make sure it hits all the nutritional bases.
