Today we will be talking about effective ⌚ management in the kitchen. For most of us, a quick meal turns out to be at least an hour in the kitchen, except we are cooking noodles(which you should be careful about consuming due to the high msg content and a whole sort of artificial additives there in+)!
From opening the fridge to take out something, we notice all sorts of things instead of going to cooking straight away!

From seeing something spoilt, we take it to the bin, they have to take out the trash, wash the dishes, kids start bickering… Our quick meal flies right out of the window! So how do we manage kitchen time especially on work/school days?
Let me break things down.

1. First thing first, you need to have a menu table that helps you prepare for the next day.
In having a menu table, you should have all your needed ingredients at hand.
We have 3 menu table that can help you prep. We have an e copy menu table, hard copy, and also an eCopy 7 days menu and recipe plan that helps you cook delicious meals with beautiful looking recipes.

2. Keeping ingredients within reach in a non clustered working area. This will help you get things quickly and without the delays of searching.

3. For those who have older kids, make a roster for each day of the week, or the day of the week you are most harried for a child to assist you. The child will be your errand hand, get you things from the fridge (and you won’t notice the spoilt whatever ;)!).

4. Get everything you will need for your meal before the time you start cooking, wash as you go, and remember that your kitchen hand can do the easy jobs, so give her some chores!

5. Since we use natural spices and not artificial seasoning cubes, make sure you have available your regular spice mix flavours that will allow you to cook any meal of choice!

6. Don’t be tempted to start other things. If you are cooking school Lunch at breakfast, get food flask ready and preheated the and finish that before moving to another chore…

7. Stock your freezer with half-done meals eg beans, Fried sauce for Jollof and for efo etc. Wrap your already plucked leafy vegetables in brown paper and keep in the fridge.

8. Have fun in the kitchen and don’t stress out! I will love to read your special kitchen management tips.
Over to you all.


What I Have Learnt In Running A Food Business (works for all Businesses..)⁣

Let Me Share Some Open Secret With You.⁣⁣⁣⁣

Aside from asking God’s help with your worldly affairs(business), do you know there are other things that work greatly(tie your camel and put your trust in Him)?⁣⁣
If you use these, I am sure by Allah’s mercy you will see jumps in sales and your bank balance biidhinallah.⁣⁣
1. Having a great product that fulfils the needs of people, so create answer(s) to needs around you.⁣⁣

2. Have attractive packaging that stands out unique. Your labelling and its contents are parts of the packaging.⁣⁣
3. Reading and researching on sales &marketing, making sure you put what you learn into practice immediately.⁣⁣

4. Learning how to take and edit crips photos of your product, writing good catchy captions and relatable contents that call to immediate action too!⁣⁣
5. This is maybe the most important: Pay to learn how to do good business! When you pay, start working on it IMMEDIATELY⁣
6. I think this should actually be number two. Learn how to calculate and determine product cost and how to determine a profitable selling price. Also find a way to save(either via an account you don’t have access to easy withdrawal, via aajo or both ).⁣⁣
Bonus Point⁣
Remember that like all things, consistency is what wins you with your anticipated clients and gives you returning clients as long as your product and customer services are not only good but always creating rooms for improvement.⁣⁣

Baarakallahu fiikum.⁣⁣
