Q & A

Time saving cooking. I love cooking but at this moment with my family and my business I only have time on the weekend to really spend time in the kitchen. What do you cook during the week to save time?

    • I like to use the weekend to cook whatever so after I get home after work during the week, all I have to do is heat stuff up and make a salad or rice, maybe nuke a potato. I buy either chicken thighs boneless or chicken breast, marinate them in something basic, then before I throw them in the oven separate them placing two or three in each piece of foil, do some with barbecue sauce, or some with teriyaki sauce and some with just simple hot pepper and garlic. When they‘re cooked, I label them and put the ones for Monday and Tuesday in the fridge, then the rest in the freezer to be taken out the night before. If I have a thick steak, I will cut it and do the same thing, just cooking it to rare, so when I throw it in a skillet, I can get it to medium rare. Only thing I don’t cook and freeze is salmon fillet or shrimp.

    • I use a lot of easy, fast and nutritious methods.  Keep bags of pre-washed spinach on hand.  serve it as a salad, a quick stirfry w/ tofu, in sandwiches instead of plain lettuce.
      use the weekends to prep carrots, celery, broccoli and other hard veggies to be ready to roast, stirfry or steam.

      use fast cooking proteins like fish, tofu, pre-cooked dinner sausage and even eggs.

      Have potatoes, pastas and quinoa on hand.  Once cooked you serve it hot the first time and then you can make it into who knows how many salads w/ the leftover veggies.

    • Our local Kroger has an excellent rotisserie chicken!! that’s always good for a couple of meals. I buy all the fixings for a salad and have them all chopped up and ready to go during the week so all we have to do is put our own salad together.
      Sandwiches are always quick and easy too!

    • I forgot to mention my favorite thing—cous cous. Done in 5 minutes and goes with everything, you can’t go wrong with it! Favorite flavor: roasted garlic & olive oil. estatic

    • I try to make spaghetti sauce one day during the week and that is good for two days after that..also a lasagne which certainly can last for two days (I make a very big one)..and we love breakfast meals two days out of the week...eggs with fruit and toast or my own breakfast sandwiches made on multi-grain bagels with yogurt/fruit...also a big pot of soup made on a Sunday can be a great meal with a salad and french bread.happy

    • I cook pretty easy during the week.  One dinner we love to purchase tuna steak, drizzle them really good oil (We use Olive Oil made here in Texas).  Then cook a pot of broccoli, squash or good salad.  

      I love my crock pot.  I prepare the food the night before pull it in am and turn it on    and then. your home and lerrv little else to do,
