Frugal Tuesday: Batch Cooking

Taking an afternoon to whip up a batch of burritos, or really anything that freezes well, isn’t always my first choice for weekend fun. But every time I do it, I’m glad I did. Having some grab-and-go breakfasts, and also some lunch or dinner meals ready and waiting, keeps us eating more healthfully and also saves us from the siren song of takeout or delivery.

This weekend, we made breakfast burritos, and my comfort-food favorite, bean & cheese. What are some of your favorite make-ahead meals?

Frugal Tuesday: Use it Up!

Yesterday I made a honey-lime vinaigrette salad dressing directly in the nearly-empty honey jar. 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/3 cup olive oil, and the juice of two limes… the recipe called for two teaspoons of honey, which was about how much was left in the container.

It went beautifully with our grilled chicken and pineapple salads!

How do you get the last bits of product out of their containers?
