A prepped kitchen is a happy kitchen

Last week I had a recipe taste test and photo shoot at work on Monday, so Sunday I got everything prepped and ready to go. It reminded me of when I was catering and needed to get things ready for an event, or just the week coming up, and I would spend a few hours cleaning and chopping and getting everything ready to go. It is a great way to run a kitchen, even if it's just a home kitchen, because cooking is ALWAYS so much more fun, and efficient, if everything is ready and prepped.

I had to take a picture of all the pretty vegetables all ready to go. I made three soups, a salad, a pasta dish (the only one that didn't pass the taste test) and rice pilaf, lickty split the next morning! If you're interested in healthy recipes, we take all of our recipes from a couple of sites that allow reprinting, as long as there are NO changes to the recipe... so even if I want to tweak a little here or there, I can't. It does take quite the willpower, I must say.

Happy prepping! It was glorious to get up and be able to cook without all the muss and fuss. I will give it a try in the future, just for me!
