Creative cooking is a problem whether for one or 7, I have five kids, so years ago when My wife was alive and the ids were home My kitchen was different then now.
the 20 minutes or 2 hours cooking is not the time consumer, It is the time you spend getting the food ready for the pot.
I pre-prep in bulk, like dice 3 onions or bell peppers and store in a Ziploc
On day one get a pack of chicken with enough for 3 meals, use 1/3 on day on making chicken and dumpling or something with a white sauce.
Day two a stir fry, Use frozen vegetables but add some fresh peppers and onions - you can steam this
and on the last something with tomatoes You can do this with any meat. I do not like left overs, at midnight they turn into fat on my butt :)
