Have you ever come home after a long day dreading the thought of having to prepare dinner? This is the time many of us resort to fast food. How much easier to go to the drive through and grab a quick meal!
Although this is fine to do once in awhile, if you neglect to plan ahead, it can become a daily habit! Something that works for me is “Sunday Cooking”! It is the one day of the week I actually have time to cook the way I love to. The beauty of it is that if you make a large amount of whatever it is you are cooking, you can freeze and save for use during the week. Turkey Chili (pictured above) is one of my favorites! There is no recipe that I use, and I make it differently every time. I tend to use whatever is in the fridge in addition to frozen ground turkey that I almost always have on hand. Just brown and drain your turkey, add in a large can of diced tomatoes, fresh ones, salsa if you have it, diced peppers (green, red, yello), onions, garlic, corn, grated carrots, any kind of bean such as kidney, cannelini, chick peas, and then your seasoning (chili powder, pepper, cumin, etc) or you can use one of those packets that come with all the chili spices mixed together. Either way, this is just one ideal meal you can cook ahead of time, freeze and just heat up after a long day at work! No drive through, healthier meal and money saved!!
