cooking meals and then freezing always works too. I'm sure once you get a routine down you will be able to find time :)

I need to get some cooking done myself. It's been crazy at my house, and I was gone all weekend. I'll have to cook in spurts.

Wy not cook on weekends. It's a start.

Oh, good idea. That will also help me plan my meals before the day I'm trying to eat... And then I can pick stuff up on my way home. It's a bit tricky, because I live out in the boonies and the grocery store is a little out of the way, but I'm going to try and plan on two days in a row, maybe? It's so hard when I never know if I'll be cooking or not... And I hate when I buy food and it goes bad or something.

Oh, I know that feeling well. I'm lucking in that my grocery store is close to home and on my commute route to work. I find that its useful to me to 'shop european' some times, and buy ingredients for dinner on the way home. The more I cook the less I'm doing this, but when I cooked rarely and planned to cook even more rarely, and didn't have many useful ingredients at home, picking up what I needed on the way home was a big help.
Also, learning substitutions is good too! Most of the time now I have staples to make a decent meal with. If I'm following a recipe and find I'm lacking an ingredient or two, rather than despair and not bother, I substitute what I can and make the recipe my own.

I'm having trouble finding time to cook. Last night I actually did have time, but there was literally nothing in the house to eat and I didn't have time to run to the store... It's a little frustrating when that happens...
