Make Time For Stitching: Mastering Meals in the Morning

OK, this is not rocket science, but one of my best strategies for finding time to sew in my day is to prepare dinner first thing in the morning.  Some days that means preparing the complete dish (e.g. lasagne). Other days it’s a simple matter of preparing all the vegies/salad, and taking meat out of the freezer. Basically, as much preparation as possible gets done as soon as possible. I love it that this way I don’t have the ‘cook dinner’ chore hanging over my head for the rest of the day. It means I can enjoy working in the studio without thinking every five minutes “I should go and make dinner”.

Actually, even if I don’t make it into the studio, preparing dinner in the morning makes the end-of-day-crazy-time a bit less crazy – invaluable with a newborn baby in the house!

    Yum. Looks like your hasselback potatoes are missing the yummy crunchy cheese/breadcrumb topping we have ours with.

    Mmm, cheese/breadcrumb topping sounds yummy! I won’t let the family know about that though, as I’m trying to keep it as healthy as possible!

    I should follow your example and then wouldn’t have the scenario that when I start cooking dinner with a 30min timeframe, I grab the recipe and find the meat needed marinating for 1-4 hours!! At least I was organised enough to have a menu plan…

      That sounds familiar – I was always forgetting to take the meat out of the freezer until the very last minute!
