Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

“Use Your Oven”

Hands-off meals are the best! It seems everyone thinks a quick meal is stir-fry and, yes, while stir-fry is “easy”, it means you have to stand over the stove making sure nothing burns. (Plus, you have to carefully plan which vegetables are added at what time so they all cook evenly. Hardly a beginner’s dish!)

Cooking food in the oven is a “set it and forget it” operation. Simply prep your ingredients, season, place in a baking pan and go lounge or play a game with the kiddos!
