When I think about the meals I want to cook for my family, I start by looking at what is featured, or on sale, at the store. For instance, Publix is having a BOGO on chicken this week. I’ll buy a large quantity and let this guide my decisions on the recipes I make. From there, it’s about planning very different meals so that each one is a new, fresh creation.
Cooking this way has transformed the approach I take to dinner each night. I was spending way too much time running back and forth to the store for different ingredients. (Not to mention that I was spending more money because they most likely were not on sale.) And no one likes leftovers so I was wasting food in the process. I love to cook, but cooking was winning and I was losing.
So back to that chicken, I am busy looking up my recipes for chicken piccata, buffalo chicken paninis, and chicken mushroom risotto. It should be a great week of food!
