Don’t have a lot of time to spend on dinner? Make major headway on meals by measuring ahead of time.
Rather than fussing with a measuring cup in a time crunch, find five minutes throughout the day (or the night before) to combine all the spices you need for a dish in a plastic bag or a small bowl.
In addition to giving you a head start on dinner, this tactic will help keep you from forgetting a spice or a garnish when you’re rushing to put the meal together.
