I don’t do anything like once a month cooking

but I do try to do some time saving things. For example, if I buy a family pack of ground beef I’ll go ahead and brown it all and then divide it up into ziplock bags with about 2 lbs. in each bag.

I also like to cook enough so that we have leftovers for at least one other meal. This cuts cooking down to every 2-3 nights. If we’ve eaten on a meal twice and there are still plenty of leftovers, especially the meat we will freeze it. That gives us a bonus meal later that I don’t have to cook from “scratch”.

Don’t forget about breakfast for supper. There are times we’ll have biscuits, eggs and sausage or bacon. Pancakes or waffles and bacon or sausage are quick comfort foods as well.
