Reduce the Amount of Time You Spend in the Kitchen
Create and Use Meal Plans
This is the #1 thing you can do to make your time in the kitchen as efficient as possible.
It can save you HOURS in the future. For instance, I have now in my freezer 3 made-in-advance meatloaves, and 2 night's worth of meatballs. That's 5 nights in the near future that all I'll have to do is pull one out, thaw it, put it in a cast iron skillet, and bake.
Cook Up on the Weekend
Often if I have a busy week ahead I'll make a huge pot of spaghetti sauce on the weekend which will then be used during the week for spaghetti or one of the meals listed below.
Reuse Something in a Different Dish
That spaghetti sauce mentioned (as well as the meatloaf mixture) could be repurposed into stuffed peppers or cabbage. Put Leftovers in the Freezer
Also right now I have 2- 1 gallon bags with homemade vegetable beef soup. That's 2 more nights when I won't have to cook.
Make Weeknight Salads Easy
Spending a few hours on Saturday can give you salad fixings for all week. It is so worth the time and effort because once done, you're done.
Enlist the Aid of Your Spouse
I honestly believe that any spouse can learn to cook something… even if it's a meal of frozen burritos. Get him his own cookbook for Christmas. Let him cook BBQ if that's what he loves. Have him pull one of your meals out of the freezer. Just get him helping.
Get Kids Helping at a Young Age
Kids also need to help and can do so at a very young age. Two of mine began cooking before they reached double digits.
Then Let Them Have Some Responsibility in the Kitchen
Once you get them started it really is worth the time and effort to keep the training going.
These are things that can help you reduce the amount of time you spend in the kitchen.
