Start a Cooking Club: Save Money, Eat Better

Some people hate to cook, some people love to cook, but most people don't have time to cook a good full meal every day. A friend of mine and I started a cooking club. One day each week we cook extra and bring it to others in the club.

Start small; one day each week we cooked double and provided to the other. Soon a third friend joined in, and I learned that it doesn't take any more effort to cook for three families than to cook for one.

It is great to know that at least three nights a week, we will have a home cooked meal, and two nights a week I don't have to do anything but heat it up. And we get to try new foods. I started a regular slow food dinner where everyone would bring something and put on the kitchen table to come up with a meal. 

We tried really hard to not make a stir fry or stew/soup. We did find a website and then an app where you can enter all ingredients and it would provide a list of recipes. Like a recipe roulette!
