|Nietzsche approves of the size of this measuring cup.|
- Copy and paste the text of a recipe into something you can edit--covert all units up to six meals worth at one time rather than having to think about it as you go shopping or while cooking.
- Shop for ingredients on a different day then you plan on cooking.
- If a recipe contains lots of directions that begin with things like "In a separate bowl..." you may want to rethink the recipe.
- You do not have to do a one dish meal. Include a side dish, muffins or a dessert. My vote is generally for a dessert.
- You don't even have to do all aspects of a meal in one day. Split it up as is convenient. Cut and chop veggies the night before. Cook muffins one night and the main dish the next.
- Or, take the opposite route, and plan a day to do everything. In my case this means letting hubs know he's on baby duty for an afternoon.
- Large slowcookers are your friend.
- It probably would not hurt to invest a large cooking pot, bowl, slowcooker or measuring cup.
- Label containers that you are freezing in before you place food in them.
So, what did I miss? Any other suggestions from your experience?
