I really like this idea, but I tend to dislike food that has been frozen. Certainly some foods lend themselves to this better than others. But I'm seriously thing about giving it a go. One big ass weekend day per month where you pretty much cook most of the day, and that's it.

I mostly do the once-a-week cooking.  I get all the protein cooked off on Sunday, and then it's just vegs and sides to make during the week.  Saves a lot of time.  Once a month, yes, I agree.  Some things are just so much better fresh than frozen.

I'm such a lazy eater. Wife kindly cooks for me at the weekend but other than that - I have sandwiches or cheese and onion pasty for lunch and a microwave ready meal for dinner. Dessert is generally some kind of chocolate bar at lunchtime, and cheesecake or similar in the evening. Add a couple of beers or a vodka martini and two large cups of coffee and that's my diet.


You can pray for me when I end up in hospital. I won't mind. Fortunately I'm still pretty slim so I don't think a heart attack is on the cards for a year or two.

I wish my man was that easy to cook for!


I'm the "lazy eater" in our house. I'm happy with just a bowl of soup or leftovers or something quick/easy to make. He, however, always seems to want the sit-down meal with a meat or fish course, etc. Ending with me throwing a bagel at his head.

A while back I experimented with making a number of breakfast sandwiches in advance to freeze. Money-wise, it didn't cost much, but after a while I got tired of eating the same thing every morning. 


I'd do this more often, but I live with picky eaters.

Please buy my books so I can send my girl to a decent school.

i keep stuff in the freezer, but mostly cooking is a pleasure and i cook daily or every other day. any leftovers are used the next day- i do tend to cook more than needed (meats) so that half of it i use with a different dish the next day. like the economy packages of chicken for example, i'll cook the whole thing on the grill or oven, then serve a third or fourth of it or whatever, and set the rest aside to put with other things the next couple of days.

I don't know, but it's been said: You do or don't and then you're dead
So climb away, get higher, son- never straight, just move ahead
Know, my child, that there is no devil seekin' to cause guilt in the hearts to men.
No evil, save blind faith, ignorance, and the desire for the unprepared to blame others for the devastation left in the wake of change.
Fear not the movement of the heavens above or the earth below for change is what we are, my child.
And if we are reflections of the divine we must roll with these changes, for we are these changes.

The wife and I do this sometimes on a weekly basis but not every week.  All depends on our mood and the time of year.  We do it more often in the winter, since I do a lot of grilling when it is warmer out.


We have one of those food sealers, you know, the one that sucks all of the air out of a bag of food and then seals it.


We would go food shopping on a Sunday morning and then cook and prep the weeks dinners that day.
