5 Easy Ways to Cut Your Cooking Time in Half
You'll be glad to know that even you can cut your cooking time in half… maybe even more by:
• Planning Ahead
• Ensuring You Have All Ingredients
• Using Something Put Up Beforehand With That Purpose in Mind
• Using Leftovers
• Repurposing Foods Cooked Earlier in the Week
Planning Ahead—Planning ahead requires you to stop and think about what you can do to put all the following steps into use.
Ensuring You Have All Ingredients—I've had to put aside something I was making in order to run to the store… fortunately a big box store is only 3.5 miles away. Still, driving, parking, walking around the store, standing in line, walking back to the car, driving, and finally pick up where I left off adds at least 30 minutes to what I was cooking.
Depending on what I'm cooking that could have actually been as long as it would've taken me to cook to begin with thereby doubling my cooking time.
Using Something Put Up Beforehand With That Purpose in Mind—What I do is to make about 11 pounds of meatloaf mixture and put it in freezer bags of various amounts. I'll pull one out and defrost for meatloaf, stuffed bell peppers, stuffed cabbage, beef and gravy over rice or pasta.
Using Leftovers—I love knowing that dinner is already cooked and just waits to be reheated. With all of the above—meatloaf, stuffed bell peppers, stuffed cabbage, or beef and gravy—I make double what I know we'll eat and we're set for the next day too.
Repurposing Foods Cooked Earlier in the Week—Chop up the meatloaf, make extra gravy, mix the corn in it, make a topping out of the mashed potatoes, and cover all this with cheese thereby making a shepherd's pie out of it. Another example would be turning spaghetti sauce into lasagna.
