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.

  5. 5. Planning Ahead All other steps depend on this one. Planning ahead requires you to stop and think about what you can do to put all the following steps into use. (c) Home Time Management 2013 | Mary Segers http://marysegers.com
  6. 6. Ensuring You Have All Ingredients I know, first hand, what a time-saver this is. 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 getting home to pick up where I left off, well, that adds at least 30 minutes to what I was cooking.

  8. 8. Using Something Put Up Beforehand With That Purpose in Mind What I really love to do is to make about 11 pounds of meatloaf mixture and put it up in freezer bags of various amounts. Then I'll pull one out and defrost for meatloaf, stuffed bell peppers, stuffed cabbage, beef and gravy over rice or pasta, or any of several other things I could make with it.

  9. 9. It's easy to make all of those dishes. As a matter of fact, the hardest part is the physical act of mixing 11 pounds of hamburger and all the add-ins. (c) Home Time Management 2013 | Mary Segers http://marysegers.com
  10. 10. Using Leftovers I absolutely love knowing that dinner is already cooked and just waits to be reheated. For instance, with all of the above—meatloaf, stuffed bell peppers, stuffed cabbage, or beef and gravy—I simply make double… or even triple… what I know we'll eat and we're set for the next day too. Oh, and my after-dinner kitchen cleaner (a 16 year-old) loves no messy cleanup. Yes, I have trained my family to love leftovers as much as I do.
