It is always easy and more convenient if you organize your kitchen according to your needs. Here is a quick guide to help you streamline your cooking journey for making for the most effective and efficient use of your time.
Chalk out a plan and think about all the dishes that you are going to cook in the upcoming weeks and frame a meal plan for kids.
Here are lists of few steps you can follow-
- Write down the names of the dish that you are going to cook.
- Look into your pantry and fetch all the missing items.
- For convenience and ease, cut down the vegetables and other items in the refrigerator.
- You can also half cook the food and store them in your fridge.
- Remember to store and preserve your food in an airtight container.
- For ease, you can also label your container and boxes.
You can also consult a professional and get hold of healthy food recipes for kids and strategize and frame your meals accordingly. Whenever you are in your kitchen, follow these steps to make cooking easier:
- Clean your kitchen:
It is essential that you keep the kitchen organised, it not only helps to grasp things easily but when you start with a clean slate, you always know all your dishes and tools are ready to go. An organised kitchen makes access to everything easier and more convenient.
- Read through recipe:
Make sure before starting on a new dish or a recipe you read the manual and go through the lists of the ingredients before. Doing this will make the process of cooking less time-consuming and will also give you an idea of what exactly you are going to do.
- Prepare the ingredients:
Always keep your ingredients at a hand’s distance. Fetching ingredients in between will make cooking a troublesome job. You might also miss out on some important ingredients and probably end up cooking something different.
- Keep dustbin ready:
Remember to keep your trash can ready and near while you start your preparation. This will not only help you to quickly toss the garbage in the trash chute but will also help you with your organization.
- Prepare the vegetables before meat:
Preparing the ingredients that are dry before the wet ones always saves an extra step of your cleaning time. Cook smart, chop your vegetables first, and voila! You don’t have to wash your board before chopping meat.
Mark our jars and containers properly and also make sure that after every use you place them at their previous place. This will help you to stay organised and focused.
Simply by taking a little care and planning out your meal and ingredients list you can very easily organise your cooking skills and make meals faster and easily.
