Plan your menu ahead of time
Make some recipes that can be made in advance choose some dishes that can be frozen or stored in the fridge for several days or left out at room temperature overnight.
Then all you need to do is defrost frozen foods that need defrosting the day before.
And cook dishes that need to be cooked or reheat dishes that need to be served hot on the day.
Prep your ingredients
For dishes that can not be frozen or need cooking on the day, prep the ingredients as much as possible.
