What a year it has been for parents, students, teachers and faculty. The challenges of teaching from a computer screen for all parties have been to say the least, difficult. Start the year off right by planning lunches and dinners so that you can have more time to enjoy with your loved ones.
1. Plan Dinners Weekly: When you plan dinner weekly, it gives you a road map as to what you need to prepare for the week ahead. So, Sunday comes around and you write your weekly dinner plan. Then you can go to the market with direction. There are many apps out there that can help you plan out the week. They will also link recipes and grocery lists. But, what we find to be the easiest is writing on a mini erase board that hangs on the fridge.
2. Give Yourself a Break: Wouldn’t it be nice not to worry about making lunches for your child? Give the worry to Lunch Break! Lunch Break 4 Kids is a lunch service that provides lunches to your child on a weekly basis. It’s too easy. Your child (or you) chooses the lunches. Lunch Break delivers them to you. Your child is happy! You gain more time. Go to LunchBreak4Kids.com to learn more.
3. Prep Kitchen: Who says you can’t prepare your food like a commercial prep kitchen? When slicing vegetables, slice them for the week, not just one night. When trimming proteins, trim, package, then refrigerate. Boil your starches (rice, pasta, etc) for multiple nights, then refrigerate. Nothing in the rule book says you have to prepare and cook daily.
4. Delivery: Most restaurants are on a third party delivery service or have one of their own. Save the hassle of making dinner, then washing everything. Order delivery! Click Order Online when you go to www.GaetanosOnline.com
