Recently I called my friend asking how she was doing and she told me she was in the kitchen cooking up a storm.. and she usually cooks for about two days. Marinating, pre-cooking etc. to make the next few weeks easier on herself. She goes: You should try that you know !! Hmm .. Alright so last weekend we went to get meat. We usually make a trip every .. 2-3 Months and get a LOT of meat since the place where we get our meat from is a bit further away.
Cooking up a storm is right:30 Chicken Quarters (marinated some, pre- cooked some), 10 Lbs of ground Beef (fried some for spaghetti Sauce, marinated some for meat balls etc., 1 1/2 Lbs of Liver which I cooked for dinner and froze some, and 7 whole Chicken, (which at the end of the day I just packed up individually, I was done seeing meat for the day) as I believe you can imagin ..
For the whole Chicken I want to make my marinade ready in a jar so every time I'd like to marinade my Chicken, it'll be ready to use.
Thinking back I would probably do it again but I'd have to start early in the morning. I'd pre cut the Onions, Garlics and other herbs, so when we do get home with the meat that would already be taken care of... So certain adjustments have to be thought over but I have to say, last night the plan was to have Chicken with Noodles and mixed Salad (which is already cut and washed, ready to eat. So is the Salad Sauce) BANG!! my dinner was done within 15 min. I was like yeaaahh !!
So I'd say: why not give it a try.. I know lots of people get cooked and ready meals from else where but we're very picky with what we eat, so we prefer to make our meals ourself ...
And for Muslims, I've never really done it yet but my friend always pre-cooks for Ramadhan so her dinners are ready within no time which is great.. just found out yesterday *grin*
