Tastings' Tuesday Tips

Good Tuesday my Sweet & Savory Friends... My tip this week is about the Pasta vs. Stock

If you plan on making any type of chili, soups, stocks and broth that require noodles. Do not add all of your noodles to the stock as it may absorb all of your liquid. Keep it separate and serve together.

Tastings' Tuesday Tips

I know I am a day late...but better late than never.

I seen a post today from Jamie Oliver indicating how to properly cut an avocado. I thought that this may be a good post especially since I made guacamole this week for the first time. After I tasted it; I am pretty sure that I will no longer be buying it in the store.

Tastings' Tuesday Tips

My tip this Tuesday is meal planning. By the end of the week I am planning my next week meal. This helps out a lot when I go to the grocery store. I know which aisles I need to go down which eliminates having to walk up and down each and every aisle. Even though the majority of my groceries come from the outskirts of the store. I always start in the produce section to pick up my fruit and veggies and then off to the butcher. The butcher is where I primarily get all of my meat. I get everything there ranging from seafood to chicken to pork beef and lamb. I am not a big steak eater; I'll eat it maybe once a year if that. Also you can ask your butcher about the different cuts of meat and the variety of ways that you can cook the meat.  Finally I make my way to the dairy and bread section.
I notice when I meal plan that I don't over spend and just start buying stuff. Also I don't have to worry about trying to find something to cook. I try not to purchase any can goods so if you have to you can buy some foods froozen and then freeze it (ex. veggies, fruit). I even
 started making my own sauces.

Make out your grocery list to plan ahead. You will have a more successful trip. I have a note section on my phone. That is where I keep my lists.
