Tips for Busy Cooks: Working for the Weekend

Time is tight enough during the week, sometimes your best bet for getting a start on dinners for Monday through Friday is to spend a little time on Saturday or Sunday getting prepared. These ideas can help you do just that:

  1. AK Home Cooking SolutionsPlan the menu for the week, then shop according to your plan.

  2. Chop vegetables, brown ground beef, cook chicken breasts, do anything you can ahead of time, then package, label and refrigerate or freeze.

  3. Wash lettuces for salads; make vinaigrettes and salad dressings.

  4. Stir together ingredients for sauces so they’re ready to add to dishes.

  5. Serve a roast on Sunday, then plan to use the leftovers in a casserole or stew on Tuesday.  Or freeze the leftovers to use later.

  6. Prep everything you’ll need for a stir-fry chop onions, peppers, carrots, celery, mushrooms and meat, and place in individual plastic bags.  Store all the small pouches in a larger bag in the refrigerator, and you’ll have dinner on the table in about 15 minutes.
