3 tips to take it easy and feed your family before the holiday

This time of year can be very stressful if we’re not committed to keeping what matters most first.  I know that’s easier said than done.  However, if we have a large menu planned for Christmas and the week before we’re cooking nonstop, it can be overwhelming and not enjoyable.

Here’s 3 tips to help balance your cooking before the holiday

1. Break out that trusty crockpot!  You know the one you received as a wedding gift 30 years ago. Yeah, that one.  Make a generous hearty soup or stew that’ll last your family a couple days.

2. Store bought meal or Simi – homemade.   Let me confess now, I’m a food snob! I’m not fond of fast food, don’t purchase store bought macaroni salad etc. So, it’s kind of hard to find good quality Simi – homemade meals when I refuse to try them.  But… One day I was at Costco and found some delicious potato soup. The only reason I knew it was good was because they had samples out.  Last week I went grocery shopping, there wasn’t potato soup, but there was some Chicken Tortilla.  Pair it with a delicious bread to use as a bread bowl or to the side and there’s another easy stress free meal.

3. Lastly, leftovers.  Leftovers are a mom’s best friend. Make a large Sunday dinner that will feed your family one extra day. Another option is a meal that can be revamped. Making enough taco meat can be turned it spaghetti the following day with a salad on the side.  How’s that for a stalling tactic?

Remember during this holiday season make your life easier by eliminating extra work.  Most of the time the bulk of cooking, cleaning, entertaining and preparing falls on us.  What do you do to help ease your load during the holiday?
