You know it’s the holidays when the big meats are on sale. Brookshire’s has whole and sliced hams and standing rib roast advertised this week. This is the perfect time for some investment cooking: that’s where you cook up something big like this, and end up with enough meals to last a week! Stock your freezer or feed the family!
Ham? Day One is the sliced ham. The next day is ham sandwiches. On the weekend you cook up the ham bone for some split pea soup. And if there’s still some left, how about a mac-n-cheese casserole with ham chunks?
Standing rib roast is the diamond cut of beef. It’s an over-sized prime rib, so the meat is fork-tender and juicy enough to skip the gravy. Fix an elegant roast, and then cook up the bones and scraps to make the best tasting beef broth you’ve ever had. That’s the start of awesome soup, casserole sauce or an amazing beef, gravy and noodles.
Yup, this is investment cooking. Cook now, enjoy several times down the road!
