With 3 kids, it’s inevitable that I’m going to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It’s amazing how much 3 little people can eat and how often. I do want to make sure my time in the kitchen is as efficient as possible, however. So I have a few tricks I’ve learned throughout the years to save time in the kitchen and make what time I do spend easier.
5 Ways to Save Time in the Kitchen
Hefty Ultra Strong – A good trash bag, like Hefty Ultra Strong, can make all the difference. With active tear resistant technology for better puncture resistance, Hefty Ultra Strong bags are an outstanding quality at a new, lower price. With Arm & Hammer odor neutralizers and new, invigorating scents, plus a scent-free option, to help keep odors at bay, Hefty Ultra Strong definitely makes my time in the kitchen easier.
Pizza Cutters – When it comes to kids’ food, there’s a lot of cutting. That’s what seems to take up the most time for me. But I’ve found a pizza cutter does so much more than cut pizza, with much more ease than a clumsy knife. Bread, toast, waffles, pancakes, french toast, any kind of dough is easily sliced into perfect bite-size pieces with a pizza cutter. It’s a lifesaver!
Garbage Bowl – Speaking of trash, a lot of time is wasted going from the cutting board to the garbage can when preparing food. Instead of making a hundred trips back and forth, set up a large bowl as a garbage bowl.
Enlist Helpers – If your kids are old enough, they can definitely be an asset in the kitchen. And, they can also make the experience more fun, which helps the time move faster. Mine love to help add in measured ingredients and stir it all together. They’re also great at rolling out bread dough and topping their own pizzas.
Have a Game Plan – Think about which ingredients and utensils you’ll need ahead of time and then keep it all easily accessible within reach. Not only will it save time, but you’ll save yourself that awkward moment when your hands are messy from meatloaf preparation, but you just realized you need a fork.
