Here's another Primal Frustration for me:
I cook much less now than when I was SAD. I wish I'd cook more :-( I love cooking.
The Basics - Food News - CHOW
Monday: Steak and broccoli. Make extra broccoli.
Tuesday: Pork chops and sweet potatoes. Make extra potatoes.
Wednesday: Chicken with leftover sweet potatoes and broccoli :-D
Thursday: Fish with fried purple cabbage and bacon bits. Make extra purple cabbage and bacon bits.
Friday: Beef roast with roast carrots (roll in butter before roasting)
Saturday: Pork roast with leftover carrots and purple cabbage and bacon :-P
Sunday: etc, etc.
I only cook once a day :-( But if that's too much for you, you could roast/broil/cook plenty of meat at once, like twice a week. Set the oven to 400, and plop a roast chicken, pork and beef roast in there, maybe even some whole sweet potatoes. Reduce temperature to 200 after 30 minutes and roast another 2 hours. This is not a perfect recipe, just a general idea that could work for those with limited time.
Nowadays I get out of bed, remove some meat from the freezer and leave it on a plate on the stove. I look in the fridge and see which vegetable(s) I want to cook. When it's time to start cooking, I ... cook the meat and veggie.
Mondays sometimes I make bone stock if I have any around, then I turn that into soups and stews for breakfast. Then I don't have to cook eggs in the morning for a whole week. So easy.
