10 Great Tips On Cooking Meals

By Charles Carr

The world is a busy place and if you are like most you are always seeking out ways to create meals for your family that are quick, easy and not too expensive. The following cooking tips can help.

1. Cook your meals for the week in one day. It may take several hours right now but later in the week, you will be grateful. Your nightly meals will be ready in minutes as you pull your pre-made meals from the refrigerator or freezer. A few ideas you might try include cooking a large roast and making several meals from one cut, combine roast and veggies, make beef sandwiches or add it to a stir-fry. You can do the same thing by frying several pounds of hamburger, freezing it for later, defrost, and add to chili, tacos or a casserole.

2. When you come in from a trip to the supermarket take a few moments to clean the fruits and vegetables before you put them away. Now, when it is time to cook dinner all you have to do is cut them up and add them to your soup or salad.

. You can get a ton of information from cooking shows on television. These shows can provide many cooking tips for quick healthy meals.

4. Develop a revolving recipe file. If you get bogged down by the idea of having to plan 30 meals a month the recipe file is for you. Let family members choose some of their favorites and put the recipes in a monthly file. Flip to day five or fifteen and there is the meal just waiting to be cooked.

5. Meal responsibilities can be shared by all the members of your family. When your children get older, they can share the chores. You can all take turn with certain preparations or even the entire meal. Couple your meals with all the clean fruits and vegetables and dinner is served.

6. Talk to your friends or neighbors, you may be able to share cooking. Some people will gather once a week and cook four or five dishes and then swap with each other. This will work best for you if you and your friends have the same likes and dislikes. When possible however this is a simple way to provide a week’s worth of meals.

7. Coupons can be a very helpful for keeping the costs down on convenient meals. You can purchase entire meals both fresh and frozen however they can be somewhat expensive. Clipping coupons may be one of the best cooking tips you could ever get, when everyone is super busy, a frozen entre can be a life saver.

8. Eating out is okay from time to time and this is another place where coupons can come in handy. You and the kids can also watch for restaurants that offer free or reduced prices for children. Even fast food can be an option as they are beginning to offer healthier choices.

9. Larger cities often offer the option of ordering your meals prepared for you. At first, it might seem expensive but whether you are providing for one person or a whole family this is a convenient choice. You will find these businesses offer a varied menu and can even provide for a special diet. At the end of the day, simply compare the money you spend on groceries and eating out with a delivery service and find what works best for you.

10. Combine several of the above ideas into a plan that is best for you.

With a few cooking tips and a bit of planning you can have quick easy meals every day and you will not have to sacrifice hours to the kitchen.
