Dicey Dinners: Convenient Weeknight Prep

20 cubles of pre-minced garlic or ginger for $1.99! Frozen aisle, Whole Foods. This method is tasty, flavorful and allows for a fast weeknight sautee. Save time, not flavor.

Some peeps prefer to prep fresh on the weekends. For ginger I like mincing with the Microplane or even a traditional cheese grater. Fill an ice-cube tray with the pulp, keep in freezer, same kind of deal.

We all do take out from time to time (to time and time again). Stop at the market, get some fresh garlic and herbs. Order some takeout. For the next 15 minutes take out all your daily agressions with your big chef’s knife and cutting block. Then keep your fragrant wares in these cute-as-button storage bowls. Prep for tomorrow’s dinner complete.
