I loved reading about all that you did last week to get ahead for breakfast! When I extend a challenge, you all really do jump right in. Thanks for making this so much fun! I’m sure your family thanks you too. But who really benefits the most from getting ahead? You and I. Yes indeed. The pay off for our efforts is that we make our kitchen work so much easier. Sweet!
Feel free to continue getting ahead with breakfast foods. (Yes, you have my permission.) Our Getting Ahead eCourse and eBook can help. Now we’re moving on to the evening meal, the Getting Ahead for Dinner Challenge. Feel free to call this a Supper Challenge if you prefer. I grew up calling it supper, but now I call it dinner, but that’s a post I already wrote a few years ago. :)
Who’s with me?! Let’s Do This!
What’s involved in this challenge? Anything that will help you put a healthy meal on the table in the evening a little bit faster or with a little less effort.
Some Getting Ahead for Dinner ideas:
- Use your crock pot (here are all of our Healthy Crock Pot recipes.)
- Cook meat ahead of time so that you can throw it into rice or pasta later
- Make a Cheesy Beef and Rice casserole ahead of time to warm up at meal time
- Freeze Chicken Fried Steak Strips for easy-to-grab meals
- Put extra casseroles in the freezer for easy meals later on
- Start making a dinner time menu plan for the week (here are our Main Dish recipes)
And those are just a few ideas. There are so many tasks you can do ahead of time to make your dinnertimes easier. (Lesson one and two – well all the lessons really – in the Let’s Do This! eCourse will give you more guidance.)
I’m planning to get a few casseroles made this weekend to help with busy days the next couple of weeks. It is SO nice to effortlessly grab a frozen casserole out of the freezer to heat up for dinner.
Let’s hear it! What are you going to make to get ahead for dinner? (Or do you prefer to call it supper?)
