One of the joys that I am now savouring from being a WAHM is being able to spend more time in the kitchen. I am also enjoying the fact that I now have more time to spend in the market weekly to look for the best produce and protein for healthier family meals! I guess I could already say that I am now more hands-on when it comes to family food. That makes me happy and my family even happier, of course!
Well, aside from the time that I am enjoying because of working from home (I get to enjoy 3+ extra hours because I no longer need to brave the traffic to go to work each day!), I also learned to be more efficient when it comes to managing my kitchen roles. Yeah, I’ve learned to plan and to delegate tasks plus I have found the best kitchen partner in PETRON, GASUL. Let me tell you more about them:
1. I plan our meals ahead.
You know how much I love meal planning (I do it weekly, by the way). Meal planning helps me become more efficient in the kitchen. I love it because it somehow removes the stress out of cooking! Not only that, it also gives me additional savings for the family since I only get the items I need when I go food shopping! Do you plan your meals for the week ahead, too? I have a meal planner template here that you might want
to print off and way you go!
2. I encourage my family to help me cook (because cooking makes a beautiful family ritual)!
Cooking shouldn’t be done by just you alone all the time. It’s also great to involve the kids (especially your husband) the next time you cook. In our little abode, cooking is a family thing especially during weekends because cooking makes a beautiful ritual when each member of the family offers something to make up a meal, isn’t it? Have your husband chop the meat while the kids help you wash the vegetables or time the pasta!
3. I have a great cooking partner: PETRON, GASUL.
It always pays to have a trusted partner in the kitchen to give you peace-of-mind and security, agree? You know it, I am very particular when it comes to family safety and so I am extremely particular especially with the LPG we use at home. Thanks to the highest quality LPG brand in the market, PETRON, GASUL.
Even when I was a kid, I see my own mom use this LPG brand in our kitchen. Funnily, when she’d ask our helper to buy LPG, she would say, “Bili ka ng Gasul. ” Yup, no other brand! Hahaha Now that I have a family of my own, it’s the brand that we use, too. But why, PETRON GASUL is in the industry for more than 50 years hence it has proven, time and again, that it is the brand that we can trust! That is why, I am a Petron Gasul mom as well!
With my every Petron Gasul purchase, I am assured of its quality. I know that I’m getting an LPG that is sakto, sulit and safe. And in times that I run out of LPG in the midst of cooking, I can always call their delivery hotline (737-8000) and they deliver right in our doorsteps!
By the way, are you a Petron Value Card holder just like me? I’m happy to share that you can enjoy a little savings for your next PETRON GASUL purchase as you’ll get it for P10 off with every 11KG refill upon presentation of your card! Your Petron Gasul purchase now al so earns Petron Value Card Points at participating service stations!
And oh, just a little heads up, if you think that you run out of savoury recipes at times, do check out Petron Gasul’s Facebook, great recipes are regularly posted there! So these are my simple ways to ease my kitchen life: I plan our meals ahead, I involve my family in cooking and I have great kitchen companions, like Petron Gasul.
How about you? What are your ways to make family cooking at ease?
