Mise en Place

The term mise en place translates into everything in its place.  With the Holiday season nearly here, this term applies to cooking preparation more than ever.  Planning your menus is a great way to save time, lower your grocery bill by buying like items in bulk, and get ahead of the increased traffic that enters your home.  Once you have your meals planned, you can begin to prepare some elements of your meals, or, in the instance of a lasagna, prepare the main courses.  Making salad dressings ahead of time as well as cookies, which I mentioned in my “C” is for Cookie post last year, will allow you to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your family.
