Save Time and Cook Once a Week

By: Vgevge
You can save time by cooking meals days in advance and storing them. If you are a busy individual and you don't have time during your crazy work week to cook dinner, try cooking on the weekends.

If you plan your meals carefully, you can quickly and easily prepare them. Try purchasing meats and seasoning them on Saturday or Sunday. Then, you can use a vacuum food sealer to keep them fresh and store them until you are ready to cook and eat them. If you would like, you can even cook the meats, and then vacuum seal them. Once you have sealed them in a bag, put them in the freezer so that they won't go bad.

Another way that you can save on cooking time during the week is cutting up ingredients like bell peppers, garlic, celery, or onions and storing them away. Chop or slice the vegetable into the size and amount required for your recipe, and use your vacuum food sealer to store them and keep them fresh. All you will have to do during the week is open up the bags and add the ingredients together. You can also put everything together as a meal, vacuum seal it, and freeze it for a quick microwave meal.

You can even prepare dessert in advance. Fruits make a wonderful dessert, and you can keep your fruit fresh with a vacuum food sealer. You can prepare toppings for a cheesecake, filling for a pie, or prepare a fruit salad. Strawberries, grapes, blueberries, pineapples and watermelon can all go into a fruit salad and you can put it together at the beginning of the week for easy access later on. Just make sure that you keep it nice and cold.

The final tips for saving time by cooking on the weekend is making sandwiches. You may be thinking, "Sandwiches for dinner? How can I do that?" Many sandwiches are delicious when they are toasted or heated up. You can prepare the sandwiches early, seal them up, and when you are ready, just pop them in the oven. They can be nice and filling. Hot sandwiches are a great option for a quick and easy dinner that you can prepare in advance.

Now that you know all of the ways you can save time cooking, go ahead and start planning your meals. Be creative. I am sure that you will come up with more ideas on your own.
