*Post in partnership with Bacofoil®
Being at home with my young family keeps me busy. Whilst Olly is at school, I’m at home keeping Freddie entertained and attempting to keep the home tidy and daily life ticking along. One of the things I used to struggle with is mealtimes, I was never organised enough and felt really unprepared. Thankfully, being challenged to up my meal prep game with thanks to a range of Bacofoil® products, I’m saving time and making meal times easier.
With the colder weather approaching and the nights drawing in, I like to use the slow cooker whenever I can. It saves me loads of time and there is no better feeling than having a meal cooking away throughout the day whilst you’re busy doing something else. One of the ways I’ve been using Bacofoil® All Purpose Zipper® Bags is to prepare my slow cooker vegetables in advance.
Usually the most time spent in the kitchen is with all the meal preparation. Peeling and chopping vegetables often take the most time so I like to do a lot of it in advance and peel and chop in bulk. If I’m peeling three potatoes I might as well peel six and save the chopped vegetables for a meal later in the week. Using the Bacofoil® All Purpose Zipper® Bags, which come in a range of sizes, I can keep a meals worth of chopped prepared vegetables fresh in the fridge or freezer ready to grab quickly in the morning. The Bacofoil® All Purpose Zipper® Bags are suitable for freezing and reusable thanks to the high quality, tear proof and water resistant film.
Another way I’m using the Bacofoil® All Purpose Zipper® Bags to help easier mealtimes is by preparing meat in marinades in advance and storing them in the fridge, taking advantage of the stand alone base. Instead of keeping the meat out and exposed in the kitchen (or in the fridge) I can keep the meat contained in the Bacofoil® All Purpose Zipper® Bags. The meat is completed sealed in the zip tight seal bags and it really helps to marinade the chicken. I can shake the bags without any of the marinade coming out and it’s a great, mess-free way of getting the most flavour into the meat.
No Sticking, No Cleaning, No Worries
Typically, as much as I’d like to just make one meal of an evening for the whole family, I have a fussy five year old who refuses to eat certain foods. Thankfully, Bacofoil® have another brilliant product that saves me time (and my sanity) and is brilliant in the kitchen. Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil is easy to use and covers baking trays to prevent food sticking.
Using the non-shiny side of the foil which has a unique BacoLift® surface, means that food glides off the tray and is ready on the plate in seconds. As it’s non-stick I don’t need to add any oil or additional grease so it’s helping keeping our family meals healthier too!
Once meal times are over, I don’t have to spend ages at the sink chiselling the remains of baked on food from the baking tray, I can quickly whip off the Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil and there’s no extra washing up to do.
Using Bacofoil® products, busy family life in the kitchen can be made much easier and more productive. Do you use Bacofoil® products in your kitchen?
