    Suitable gerund

    I have solved nine exercises with gerunds except one. Please help me out:

    Put a suitable gerund in the following:

    This is the sentence: I was busy.................... ready for dinner.

    For me the word ready makes me trouble. If it were not there I would say for example: I was busy preparing/cooking for dinner.

    thank you in advance,
