Prepare 3 Meals All in One Go in the Morning

Ever wonder how some moms just seem to be able to pull the day all together without much frenzy?

I learned this from my Japanese friend, Himiko, who has since returned to Japan, but I always remember:

Have the discipline to get up early in the morning and prepare 3 meals ALL in one go - breakfast, lunch and dinner together.

Chop and cut all ingredients beforehand. Then place them in the fridge ready to be cooked. If it is soup or stew you are making, you can make them in the morning already. You can just warm a portion at dinner time. This way of working helps you to reap the economies of scale from one time work.

Once when I visited her, I saw that she had all the preparation done ready to whip up dinner in the evening in no time. That would means waking up probably at 5.30am, early in the morning ready to to face the day, before the frantic pace sets in. It is a good advice.

The only challenge for me is alas I love my sleep too much, so until today I have yet to achieve it, but I am getting better :-)

My friend does so without complaining or calculating. She reminds me of the woman of noble character described in Proverbs 31:10-31. Whenever, I starts to complain about work, I think of my friend and Proverbs 31:10-31.
