Cooking on Sunday for the Week Ahead
April 17, 2016 6 Comments
I know that some of you work on Sundays so this post is really about your day off from work.
Cooking on a day off isn’t as painful as it sounds – especially the way I do it. Either, I roast a big pan of vegetables in the oven for twenty minutes or I set up my slow cooker at the beginning of the day and forget about it.
For roasting, I have two large rimmed baking sheets that I line with aluminum foil for easy clean-up. The deal is that I wash the vegetables, toss with a little olive oil and salt, and roast at a high temperature for 20 minutes. I store them in the refrigerator for later consumption.
I cannot tell you how much better it is to have cooked, delicious food ready to go in the refrigerator when I am tired and hungry.
It is such a win, win, win. You save calories, money, and time (as well as frustration!).
