How to Save Lots of Time in the Kitchen
Cooking is one of the things that can really take up a lot of our time. Just the very act of cooking can eat up hours of our week (pun intended).
First, think ahead
Don’t wait until the last minute to know what you're serving for dinner.
Second, plan ahead
Planning ahead involves thinking about what’s going on during the coming week and actually working around it. I plan my meals for the week on the weekend before. So, when I wake each morning I already know what’s for dinner and I can either:
• Take something out of the freezer
• Put something in the crockpot
• Know that I’m going to cook ABC this afternoon or
• Know we’re having leftovers
Completely plan the week’s menus and be sure to include cooking ahead. For instance, Saturday’s leftover spaghetti sauce could become Monday’s lasagna and then Tuesday’s beef-a-roni and then Friday’s shepherd’s pie And, of course, you’d want to freeze the sauce after a couple of days and pull it out of the freezer to use in the later meals.
Third, follow through with actual action
Thinking and planning are great but are only the first couple of steps. The third is the most important one of all.
ACTION.

  • How to Save Lots of Time in the Kitchen
  • Cooking is one of the things that can really take up a lot of our time. Just the very act of cooking can eat up hours of our week (pun intended). Because of that, it’s also where we can save a lot of time.
  • Let’s face it… we’re going to be cooking for the rest of our lives. We may as well figure out the easiest way to do it. Here's what I've learned…
  • First, think aheadDon’t wait until the last minute—or even the last 2 hours to know what you're serving for dinner. You know that your family is going to be sitting there at a certain time with their forks and knives wanting, needing, and expecting some form of nutrition.
  • Second, plan aheadPlanning ahead involves thinking about what’s going on during the coming week and actually working around it. I plan my meals for the week on the weekend before. So, when I wake each morning I already know what’s for dinner and I can either:Take something out of the freezerPut something in the crockpotKnow that I’m going to cook ABC this afternoon orKnow we’re having leftovers
  • Regardless of which of the above scenarios is playing out today, my mind is at ease knowing that that particular responsibility is already taken care of.
  • Completely plan the week’s menus and be sure to include cooking ahead. For instance, Saturday’s leftover spaghetti sauce could become Monday’s lasagna and then Tuesday’s beef-a-roni and then Friday’s shepherd’s pie.And, of course, you’d want to freeze the sauce after a couple of days and pull it out of the freezer to use in the later meals.
  • The point is that you’re not caught off guard.
  • Third, follow through with actual actionThinking and planning are great but are only the first couple of steps. The third is the most important one of all.
  • ACTION
  • You can have the best plan in the world (step 1) and figured out exactly how you’re going to pull it off (step 2) but if you then don’t actually do anything then it’s all for naught.
  • Practice makes perfect and if you could just manage to get started and do the above steps week after week until they become habit, then you’ll save lots of time in the kitchen through great home time management and cooking smartly.
