Meal Planning Tip 3: Stretch it Out!

Sharing is caring!

This is a fun new 10 week series here at Southern Mom Cooks. Every Sunday, for 10 weeks, I will be bringing you a fun Menu Planning Tip for you to pin on Pinterest and use throughout your home!


When cooking a meal for one day cook extra so you can use the extra the next night but in an entirely different meal. (Example: If you’re cooking chicken one night to have with potatoes and a veggie, cook extra so the following night you can make a chicken salad.)
