Life can be a lot easier if you prepare certain ingredients in advance; you can pull out these items on busier weeknights when you don’t have as much time to assemble everything from scratch. Here are some suggestions for getting—and staying—organized in the kitchen:

Italian White Bean Soup
Serves 6 to 8 as a main dish
You can prepare this simple but delicious winter soup ahead of time and freeze it in individual portions in zipper-lock bags. When you’re ready to eat, just thaw and heat a bagful. Serve it with a green salad, an artisan bread, and good butter. It will thicken on the second day. You can add water to thin it out, or serve it as-is for a side dish.
¼ cup flavorful, extra-virgin olive oil (Greek is good)
¼ to ½ cup chopped Italian or curly leaf parsley
3 large cloves of garlic, minced
1 pound cannellini beans, washed, sorted, soaked, cooked, and drained
Salt and freshly ground white pepper
— Recipe by Marianne Streich, from Bounty from the Box: The CSA Farm Cookbook
