seriously, do what i do, make large batches of food and freeze it
works well for things like beef stew, chili, spaghetti sauce, etc.
then you can have good food anytime
of course, i ate nothing but some pop tarts on thursday and friday cause i got stuck at work all day and night
so today it was nice to actually have something decent
took out the frozen spaghetti sauce last night, bought some portabello muxhroom tortelinni, and voila, dinner in ten minutes
