- Plan ahead! Decide on your menu in advance, and write out timings and shopping lists. Using a calendar or printed calendar page can really help.
- If you can make it ahead, do it! In the few days before, it's great to prep items and cook recipes that just need to be heated.
- Go through all your chosen recipes and write out a full shopping list. Double check pantry items that you need, in case they're out of date or run out.
- Be sure that the dishwasher is empty before you start cooking so you're not running out of dishes as you cook.
- Set the table the night before. That way you have plenty of time to make it look beautifull.
Without further adieu, here are the recipes!
