Weekend Project(s) – Investment Cooking November 13, 2009

Okay, so I’m doing something a little different this weekend. Instead of something that most people would consider a weekend project, we’re doing cooking. That’s right – cooking.

The concept behind investment cooking is simple – start with ingredients that are on super sale (especially the meats and produce), cook up a ton of food with those ingredients, and then divide it all up into meal-size portions and freeze for later. That’s it!

You’re essentially making your own microwave dinners. You can often turn a task that takes a few hours every single day into just one weekend of work! Some people even make a party out of it and then you plus all your neighbors and friends end up with freezers full of meals for the month.

And another reason I like it is because while some people combine it with a menu, others (such as myself) don’t have to stick to a menu. Just look in the freezer and decide what you want that night. It’s like turning your kitchen into a drive through (with far better food of course).

Okay, so it’s a lot easier to write than to actually do. I want to use my weekends for other projects, so I personally prefer a different method – the days that I have time to cook, I just cook up a larger batch (doesn’t have to be too much larger, just make sure there are leftovers) and then freeze the extra in meal-size portions.

Either way you do it, it’s a great way to save time and money.
