For all women that normally has a routine of cooking on the lunch and on the dinner time, I know how you feel after a couple weeks cooking and feeling that we don’t have anymore ideas of what to cook? As I want to help everyone, I came up with the plan and tips for all of us.
1. Make a list of what food ingredients you, friends and family like:
We have to think about everyone that shares a house, we know that all of us has different tastes, so it’s good to have a little list of these ingredients
2. Spend time looking for new recipes:
This world is full of different cultures and of course, full of different recipes or if you or if you prefer, search for more traditional plates from your country, I have to be honest that I haven’t try everything from my country. I have a Arabic friend that invited me and my future husband to have a dinner at her house, what she got us to eat was this weird soup which tasted really acid, I tried to eat with bread and honestly that was the solution to get a good taste. So have a open mind about the food, even if it’s not an advice that I follow myself but I’m working on it.
3. Start creating a list with the meals that you are going to prep each day of the week:
I found hard to get into this step, but having a list of the food ingredients that me and my fiance like by my side, helped me a lot having ideas combining the ingredients and methods that I could do and try not to repeat the recipes. Also planning the time that you are start cooking is a good idea, that’s keep you organized.
4. When you go for a food shopping, do a list of what is missing on your fridge and according to what you are going to cook through the week and of course always have a look of the sales:
My method to this is having a look in supermarket online stores comparing the prices to another websites, you may jump from one store to another but at least your are saving money.
I hope you liked and feel helped with this short list of tips to planning your meals for the week.
