Working for the weekend

  • Everyday I see a recipe, eat a dish, or see something that just sounds irresistible and I make sure I put that on my weekly dinner menu. Start getting in the habit of making a weekly dinner menu and shop accordingly. Once you get done writing your menu save it for a later use as one week you just may not feel inspired. I know writing a dinner menu does not even sound remotely fun but it will help you during the week. No more what am I going to fix and what do I have to buy…
  • Do all your chopping one day during the week. Chop all your veggies, beef, or chicken, label and refrigerate or freeze.
  • This is the time to wash and spin all your lettuce. Make all your dressings and vinaigrettes.
  • Stir all your ingredients together for all your sauces. This way they are all ready for the day you make your big dish.
  • On Sunday plan to make a roast and use your leftovers for stew or casserole for tuesday. With any of your leftover meat freeze for a later meal or use.
  • Chop all your veggies for a stir fry and place in individual bags. Store all your small plastic bags in a large zip lock bag and store in the refrigerator. This way you will have dinner on the table in no time. About 15min or less!

These are just a few tips to help give you that extra jumpstart. I hope this gets you to thinking of other quick easy tips to use. If you know of other tips please share them with everyone.
