Cook Food Once, Enjoy it Twice
Save valuable time and extend your grocery budgetBy FamilyFeatures.com
Cooking a base dish that can be enjoyed today and used for a different meal tomorrow can save you valuable time and extend your grocery budget. Doing so also brings you comfort to know you’ve planned ahead and made a “double-up” meal.
For example, you can bake fish for tonight’s dinner, and eat fish tacos for tomorrow’s lunch. Or you can make a “blend” or base to create multiple meals. The mushroom-beef blend below makes your beef go further by using mushrooms’ ability to mimic the texture of meat. For additional blend recipes, visit mushroomcouncil.com.
Use this versatile blend to make the Blended Tacos and Mexican Lasagna listed below.
