I hate cooking. Well, not so much cooking, but the time it takes to prepare for a meal and to clean up from it. I don’t mind the cooking part itself. So what ends up happening? I normally make a lot of one meal on Sunday and then eat it for the first few days of the week. The the last couple days of the week I’ll just eat something easy like a can of soup with some rice.
I realized I need to come up with a way around this or just deal with it. Why? It often leads to less healthy choices or us going out to eat, neither of which are great.
So far I have thought of a few options. The first is a menu plan. We’ve done this before but we have just gotten lazy so I think it is time to re institute it. The second is frozen pre-prepared quick meals. I’ve always wanted to try this but never could find any recipes and don’t know what would freeze well and what wouldn’t.
As far as clean up goes, I should take any downtime while cooking to clean up whatever I’ve made dirty so far. Other than that, if I just finish cleaning up right after dinner the horrible feeling of impending dishes won’t be hanging over my head anymore… I think this might work…
What do you do for meals during the week? How often do you cook meals and do you hate doing dishes as much as I do?

20′s Finances wants to know Is Hatred For Renting a Good Reason to Buy a House? If it is the sole reason and you don’t make a smart buy I definitely say no. If it is reason 15 of 100 then it would be a decent factor, in my opinion.
Enjoy your weekend!
