Advanced: Reading Comprehension


There is a never-ending struggle to find the most efficient way to get good food on the table and get the tired cook out of the kitchen. The smartest strategy is this: Choose your battles.
One of the best things that you can do is take advantage of little tricks and timesaving products that will greatly decrease time spent in the kitchen. A well-chosen armament of frozen, canned, and refrigerated goods will allow you to skip steps at home without making big compromises on taste.

At my house, coffee is important. We don't drink a lot of coffee, but we love it, so I keep whole beans in the freezer and grind just enough for each freshly-brewed pot.
I love salad too, but I see no shame in letting someone else wash the salad greens so I can have it on nights when I'm too exhausted to clean and tear them myself.
