“Eating Good – Daniel Style!” Day 5

09 Jan

So what did you do this weekend?  I hope shopping, prepping, and cooking!  With a busy week ahead, I knew that if I did not get a few meals under my belt, I would end up settling for a throw together meal that would proabably not satisfy.  My philosophy in the kitchen is cook once – eat twice…or thrice!  Here is what I cooked on Sunday night:

1.  Homemade marinara sauce.  I used a 106 oz can of peeled tomatoes that I crushed (San Marzano tomatoes are stellar!)  After adding in all the other ingredients and simmering, this yielded me 3 quart sized freezer bags of beautiful marinara sauce ready to make any pasta proud to be drenched in.  I put one in the fridge, two in the freezer.

And while the sauce was simmering I made…

2.  Sauteed spinach and garlic, fried plaintains, and steamed brown rice.  While the rice was steaming in the rice cooker (which I love), I whipped up the other two dishes.  You should have saw the beehive my family made with their lunch plates to pack up – each man for his own here).  This yielded me lunch for them today at school/work and dinner for this evening.

All in all, this mere 2 hours in the kitchen yielded me 5 potential meals.  I left the kitchen and went to bed with the  satisfaction of knowing  that I had used my time wisely, and that I had meals to look forward to consuming – all with the added benefit of having an extra day or two off in the week to rest from cooking.  After all, I deserve it…and you will too 😉
