Dinner Shortcut

Now that I'm back to cooking all of our meals, I've begun cooking larger quantities in order to reduce the duration of my cooking. For instance, for lunches I may make a bunch of quinoa or pasta to use for salads or even supper. I will put a large (thawed) bag of chicken in a crockpot with chicken broth and bay leaves, bake, then shred. I make chicken noodle soup, BBQ, and/or chicken salad croissants. Or, I will make 3-4 pounds of taco meat. I'll make tacos, taco salad, taco soup, or on a cheese dip. Buy pre-chopped salad and a baguette, and your meal is done!

What are your kitchen shortcuts?


  1. I always make cook enough to have leftovers for lunch the next day. Also, I find breads to be time consuming. I do bread day one day a week....I cook all my bread for the week, including muffins and pancakes, then freeze them.

  2. I need to do a baking day! Good idea!
