This week, I have put together a list of easy recipes to add to your meal plan. Some of these recipes are ones that can be made ahead of time or doubled for later use in the week or can even be frozen for future dinners; when you want to eat them just heat them up.
Tips For Meal Prepping and Using Leftovers
- Chop the vegetables for the shrimp cakes, meatloaf at the same time. Store them in the refrigerator for up to three days.
- Make the chuck roast when you have enough time to cook it. This is a great dish for leftovers. Serve leftover shredded meat in quesadillas, or add more carrots, some peas and top it with mashed potatoes.
- Leftover turkey meatloaf is also delicious in sandwiches or salads.
Make a game plan before you start cooking. Get your ingredients organized and measured. Next, figure out which tasks take the longest, and start with them first. Work your way back to the shortest tasks and the finished recipe.
