Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Frugal Kitchens 101 - The Frugal Kitchens 101 Series

Frugal Kitchens 101
I introduced the Frugal Kitchens 101 series of posts on November 24, 2008.  From its inception, the posts were designed to discuss frugal kitchen practices going live each Monday morning. About a year later I ran a reader poll to help me decide whether or not to continue the series.  Hands down readers voted a resounding yes to keeping the series going.  Here it is going on four years later and the series is still going strong.  There are days I struggle to write an interesting post simply because a lot of the frugal practices I use in the kitchen are so deeply ingrained I honestly just do them without thinking about them.  Of all the cooking and foodie post I write, the Frugal Kitchen 101 posts really are the most challenging.  There are no pictures of food, seldom any external links to help with the writing just pure writing. 

I really do hope these posts help others with frugal kitchen ideas.  While they work for me, they may not work for others and that's what it is all about.  Take what information you can use and will help you then leave the rest behind :)

Yup. :o)
And it if gets to be too much, you could always do it once a month or just as the mood suits you.

I enjoy it, even if I don't comment all the time. Thank you! :o)
