Quick tricks for busy moms

Pot scrubber: Take the mesh that onions come in. Roll it into a ball and scrub those non-stick pans.

Make pasta with less energy: fill your pot with water as usual, turn burner on high, put a lid or plate on top. When water boils, pour uncooked pasta into the water, stir once and then turn burner off. Replace the lid and your noodles will continue to cook.

No watch frying: If you are browning ground beef. Put your raw beef into the skillet and cook at medium heat. Place a lid on the skillet. The meat will cook slowly and you will only need to stir occasionally.

Less fat red meat: When your ground beef has finished cooking, drain the grease off. Then run it under hot water to wash away more fat. You can now season the meat.

These are just a few things that can help a busy mom.
