To make the best of your cooking day, you need to follow these steps.
People say you have a higher chance of success if you spend 70% of your time preparing and 30% of your time executing. Honestly, it has worked for me too many times that I have lost count.
For your cooking day preparation, here is a list of things to do;
Set a date for your preparation
If you don’t have an exact date, it’s like you are just shooting yourself with a dart of procrastination. Trust me, it hurts every time.
Time will always find a way to grab your attention. If it’s not a family business, it is your business. The first step to preparing is to find a suitable date.
Say No to other events
It is essential to clear out your schedule for that day. It is called a cooking day for a reason. Any major thing you are doing should involve cooking. Now that you are aware of this. Let’s move on to the next step.
2. CREATE A LIST
Creating a list of foods you want to make at home is also part of the preparation, but it should be separate. There is no cooking day if you don’t know what to cook. It’s an essential aspect of the cooking day.
Have a list of foods you want to make!
If you don’t already have any food in mind. I came prepared with a list of 10 easy foods to make at home.
- Coconut Rice.
- Jollof Rice.
- Peppered Beef.
- Grilled fish, plantain, chicken, turkey.
- Pepper soup.
- Yam and egg sauce.
- Pancakes, toasted bread, and the like.
- Fried Rice.
- Soups like Efo riro, egusi, pepper soup, ofada sauce.
3. GROCERY SHOPPING
Going to the market is the third step. Having a list of food items you want to get will give you the direction you need. If running grocery errands is not your thing, you can try hiring an errand runner who is skilled and experienced.
Hiring an errand runner on Gatekrasher is the way to go for me. I have done this severally that I don’t worry about the market stress anymore. Staying chilled at all times is my mantra.
4. ENJOY YOUR COOKING DAY
