I have decided that it is cook once, eat twice week. I often do this with some meals, but this week I am going to try to only cook the main part of dinner a few days and then will rework the leftovers the other nights.
Yesterday, we grilled hamburgers and had potato salad and green salad. I decided to just grill up a few extra burgers and make a little extra potato salad, so that I do not have to cook tonight.
I also cooked up some bacon this weekend and I saved half of it to use in pasta later this week.
I plan to cook up several pounds of taco meat this week also to use for several meals. I won’t totally have those nights off cooking, but it will make cooking a lot easier. I am also planning to grill steak later this week and use the leftovers, if there are any, for steak salad.
Do you ever cook once eat twice?
