Culinary Time Savers

Here are my tips for saving time when preparing meals or snacks.
Because I do these as second nature now,
they seem obvious to me, but hopefully it's something new and timesaving for you!

When making mince meat/bolognaise sauce for spaghetti, double the batch and save half for making a lasagne later in the week.

When boiling penne, shell or other pasta types, double the amount of pasta and save half for a
cold (or hot) pasta salad later in the week—or if your kiddies are like mine (pasta lovers), the cold pasta makes great finger food snacks.

This Works for Me! What works for you? For more tips,

Ooh, that reminds me I do have extra spaghetti sauce in my freezer from last time I made it so I won't need to make more when I make spaghetti for dinner tomorrow :D yay! I love it when I can make extra of something to put in the freezer to save time the next time I make it.
