One way to free up time in the evenings is to make your weeknight meals quicker and easier to prepare. Instead of resorting to takeaway, try preparing one flavour-packed base sauce on Sunday to tweak for meals throughout the week.
You'll need to do a little meal planning to make sure your base sauce will work with each night's dinner, or at least with some part of each meal. Whatever base sauce you choose to make can be a quick boost of flavour to even simple, quick dishes like rice and beans, or more elaborate dinners like a beef roast. Ultimately, the goal is to have a simple sauce you can customise for anything. Spending half an hour on Sunday will save you meal prep time throughout the week.
