Make Ahead Meals

Wow. I'm really becoming a believer in prepping things as much as possible in advance. It has saved my bacon this week! I mentioned in one of my posts yesterday that it's been just a crazy week at work. I had an idea that is was going to be nuts, so I planned accordingly and tried to have all of my meals done right to the cooking portion.

So yesterday, I can't tell you how heavenly it was to get home, pull out the mini meatloaves that had been thawing in the fridge, pop them in a baking dish, quickly mix up my ketchup/mustard/sugar sauce and pour over and pop them in the oven alongside the twice baked potatoes that I had also had prepared and thawed. 40 minutes later dinner was ready! It was a really nice meal that typically takes longer to prepare, and I barely had to lift a finger. Which was great, because if I'd had to labor much, I think we would have been heading the fast food route, and I really hate doing that if I don't have to!

I will be posting more ideas, recipes and tips on how you can prepare in advance. It doesn't require a lot of time to really get ahead, but boy will it ever save you the time when you need it!

Each rolex replica sale us are well manufactured, every replica watches process is strictly carried out, just to create the distinguish masterpiece for each of our customers. I received the replica watches sale but one of them the Hysek has few problems, a missing screw on the back cover, the main circle turns but has a rather large vertical play, seems it is replica watches fix properly, and a front rivet screen is missing. I have no problem to fix back the screw if you have a spare one but the rivet in the front and the rest, I do not know what to do, to be honest I am not satisfied that the rolex replica sale has so many problems. I want to return it, can you please send the return address. You can make a refund when you receive the hublot replica watches back. Do you have any other suggestions.
