The last 2 weeks I’ve done “week in a day” cooking. In other words – I’ve done my cooking for the entire week in a single day. I got the idea from Rachel Ray’s new Cooking Chanel show (Week in a Day) and it’s such a great time investment!
I love to cook, so it was actually a wonderful way to spend a weekend day. I’ve decided to dedicate all Sunday afternoons to this effort. A bottle of wine, a little music, and a lot of cooking. What better way to start the week?
My “week in a day” tasks actually starts on Saturday. I select all my recipes for the week, write up my grocery list and go grocery shopping. When Sunday rolls around – I’m ready to go! I pile all my food, pots, recipes, etc.. on my counters, pour my glass of wine, and get to cooking.
Now if I could just catch up my food blogging to my food cooking / eating…!
What I’ve made (all recipes soon to come!):
Week 1: Hungarian Shepard’s Pie, Chicken Tetrazzini, Sloppy Joes, and Chicken Salad.
Week 2: Baked Ziti, Roasted Chicken, Tuna Salad, Vegetable Curry, and Garlic Sautéed Broccoli.
For anyone like me – who’s seriously busy @ work during the week and exhausted and starving when rolling in the door in the evening… – you should try this! It was not only a fun way to spend my Sunday afternoon but it gave me something to look forward to throughout the week.
