Cooking a big or complex meal can be a daunting task, especially if you're busy with work and other weeknight tasks. The easiest way to get meals done during the week is to prepare the ingredients earlier. When you have time, prep the ingredients for your meals. If you prep on Sunday, you can have ingredients ready to go for your Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday dinners. Prep work usually comprises most of the hassle and time of cooking, so the actual final "throwing together" will be a snap once this step is done.
