I don't cook very much. My husband is a good cook, but he really only does complicated recipes once or twice a week. Usually he'll make a big pot of something (stew, or curry or whatever - he'll triple or quadruple most recipes) and we'll eat that for several meals during the week - alternating with simple stuff like hamburger patties and roasted vegetables that only take a few minutes of prep. We usually freeze a serving or two of whatever he makes on the weekend for later meals, too. We eat salad for lunch everyday and our breakfast lately has been a sweet potato stew that he makes on the weekend and I heat up each day, along with some poached eggs that I make. If you don't mind eating the same dishes a bunch of times during the week, you can get by with a lot less daily cooking.
