My post today at Familyeducation.com is on the whole idea of cooking to "cook once, eat twice." I have been deliberately trying to use this method of reusing parts of one meal to use in another meal, but I am still getting the hang of it.
Reheating leftovers? I am good at that. But trying to fine tune my menu planning so if I cook chicken one night, cooking double to use the leftover chicken in a second meal? Not so much.
But you know my Chicken Taco Soup? I tweaked a few things with this soup and was able to get three meals out of it...
You'll have to hop on over to the FE link above and check it out. I was quite excited about my new discovery...I will never make the soup the same again.
Do you have any good "cook once, eat twice" tricks you can share?
