I like soup only if it's homemade. My husband gets tired of them, though. I was thinking of making a few large pots of different kinds and freezing them. Bad/good idea?

Do you eat soup? I got used to having soup with dinners in the service, But canned soup is not a good food for losing weight. I make my own, when the vegs in the zips are getting a little tired, but them in a crock pot, I use a pressure cooker, add broth or tomato juice and anything else you want and bingo you have healthy soup, you control the salt and fat - you can even make cream soup using skim milk

I do it with everything, My refrigerator is like a salad bar. I have shred cabbage, carrots, butternut squash,

I use a French fry cutter to make sticks from Jicama, carrots, and daikons and chunk up melons. I have a better chance of eating the right thing if it is easy

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 :)

I'm still learning the layout of this forum...I posted this in another section, but it looks like I'm supposed to create a new thread here. Oops! :)

About me, I have just joined SP and so far I think it's amazing. I cook for my husband and myself only. I was previously married and I hated, hated cooking. But now I love it, thankfully! I just wish I had more time to cook since I work 2 jobs. Sometimes it is difficult finding meals for only two people. My problem is my hubby eats a lot and he doesn't leave leftovers! I would like leftovers so I can save money and time the next day for lunch. I'm trying to find ways to cook more and look into ways to store foods for a period of time. One of my favorite sites is allrecipes.com. Love that place! Anyway, I'm so glad to have found this place. Looking forward to chatting with y'all.
