Cold Weather Cooking Tips

Is it just me, or are the chillier months also the busiest?! All I want to do is kick back with a steaming bowl of chili or soup, and relax with my candles and family–but there’s back to school craziness, and the holidays to contend with! Getting back into the swing of things for the school year takes up most of my family’s time and energy, with homework and extra-curriculars. I have found some time-saving cold weather cooking tips that I have to share!

Above all else, if you don’t already have one, get yourself a slow cooker or an instant pot (or both!). They have made my life soooo much easier!

I generally grocery shop and meal prep, within the same weekend day, so that our meals are planned and on track for the week. Try making freezer meals, or prepping ingredients for the different stews or soups you might want to make, and then set them in a storage container or baggie in your fridge. That way, you can just pour it all into the slow cooker before you leave for work or school drop off! Nothing beats coming home fro ma busy day, and being greeted by the savory smells wafting from a crockpot! (Just don’t forget to plug it in and turn it on–can you tell I have made that mistake before?).

When I make lasagna, or a casserole, I generally make two, and then freeze one so that we have a healthy meal option that’s quick to heat.

With a little meal planning and food prepping ahead of time, it is definitely possible (and easy!) to have warm and healthy meal during the busy week!
