4 Tips To Make Weeknight Cooking Easier

Cooking during the workweek need not be stressful.

Planning your weeknight menu means never having to ask, “What are we having for dinner?” Make meal-prepping easy with these tips:

 

 

1. PREPARE THE WEEK’S MENU AND DO YOUR GROCERY SHOPPING OVER THE WEEKEND.

Make sure to have enough supply for one whole week. Invest in pantry staples—you need salt to last until Friday. Also consider that fresh ingredients must be consumed earlier in the week.

 

 

2. COOK A BIG BATCH OF A BRAISED OR ROASTED DISH DURING THE WEEKEND.

Heat one portion of the dish for one weekday, then transform other portions into new dishes for the following days.

 

 

3. IN THE MORNING, RIGHT BEFORE LEAVING FOR SCHOOL OR WORK, THAW AND MARINATE YOUR MEATS IN THE FRIDGE.

All that’s left to do when you get back home is cook.

 

 

4. THE MICROWAVE IS YOUR BEST FRIEND.

Aside from heating food, it can also be used to cook meals from scratch.
