Cook Once, Save for Later
This also works really well with rice. When planning my menu for the week I will often have two or three nights with rice on the menu. I will make extra rice the first night so I don't have to worry about cooking it a second time. I generally like to place theses "extras" in the freezer rather than the fridge so that if plans change I don't have wasted food. Again, rice was part of the menu the night I made the fajitas but I knew that I wanted to make my Cheesy Ham and Rice Casserole soon so I double the batch of rice. It's now waiting in my freezer for me to use.
