A Little Known Way to Get Out of the Kitchen Quicker
Everyone wants to get out of the kitchen quicker so I'm going to share one of the most effective ways I know of to get done what you need to do and get out of YOUR kitchen much quicker than you ever dreamed possible…
After all... you have much better things to do, right?
What I'm going to share with you is something that has made my life so much easier and that is the concept of repurposed food in a different dish.
Now before you go wrinkling your nose picture some of the following scenarios.
Spaghetti sauce can be repurposed in dishes such as:
• Stuffed Cabbage
• Stuffed Bell Pepper
• Shepard's Pie
And many many more.

Meatloaf mixture can be repurposed in dishes such as:

• With gravy over rice or potatoes
• In a casserole with corn and pasta

Any leftover meat could be turned into a casserole.
Even vegetables are reusable.
My older daughter loves to take leftover veggies and freeze them with others and then make a stew.
So… where do you start in your quest to get out of the kitchen quicker?
Figure out what your family likes to eat and see how you could create those meals with a minimum of effort by reusing something you've already cooked. For instance, you could take leftover hamburger patties and use in homemade vegetable soup. If you have leftover chicken one night plan to serve in the next day or two something like chicken tacos.
The bulk of the cooking (chicken) will be done.
Any of these tips will help you get out of the kitchen quicker and the results will be magnified when you pair it with planning meals ahead of time.
