I see line ups at fast food places – people don’t mind standing in line and yet in the time it takes to stand in line, people could have 2 or 3 or more meals made!  How?  Roasting.  Slow cooking in a slow cooker.  Stews.  Curries.  Casseroles. and making double the meals when you prepare your dinner.

You can roast meat and vegetables – you don’t even have to peel most vegetables especially root vegetables like carrots, parsnips, beets, turnips, potatoes – just wash them very well and roast with a less expensive cut of meat – saves not only time but money.  Just set the timer on your over to start in the afternoon or throw everythign in to a slow cooker and by dinner time, your meal is ready. 

Make enough for hot lunch to take to work and/or another dinner later that week.  Same goes for casseroles – just put everything together, put it in a casserole dish in the oven, set the timer and it’s done when you get home!   The bonus is that you can prepare these the night before, put them in the fridge, just before you leave put them in the oven and voila!  a great dinner!

It tastes great, its nutritious, it’s less expensive than fast food and you don’t have to stand in line!
