Cooking in the evening after a day's work

    I quite often procrastinate for hours on end. It's like a snake biting its own tail. The hungrier I am, the more tired, and the less I want to cook, and the hungrier I will be.

    This is not whining. More like laughing at myself. Save your advice, I don't ever listen to advice.

    How's cooking after an honest day's work for you?

    So, you must spend your whole Sunday making your meals then freeze them?

    Edit: poached egg sammich, tomato, scallion, spinach. 5 mins. ;)
     
  4. I used to love to cook every day. Lately I just don't feel like it though.
    I'm busy chasing after a 2 yr old all day and taking him to do things and cleaning and other stuff...
    I eat a lot of left overs and stuff.

    I work nights, so dinner is the first meal of the day for me. I mostly grill chicken, steak, fish, etc. When it gets colder I use the oven more, but I usually eat the same things year round. I eat simply and don't really prepare extravagant meals since it's just me.

    I can relate to this a lot. Sometimes I manage, but most of the time I either end up eating scoops of peanut butter and whatever else is just there, or I get take out. I've been thinking about renting a room in exchange for cooking and cleaning. I need a woman around who either enjoys that stuff or can manage it better than me.
     
  7. One thing I like to do is cook things like chilli or chicken soups or chicken pot pie (not the pie kind) or other things that make like a week's worth of meals but don't require a lot of work.

    Crock pots are great but I guess only for family- sized meals.

    Cooking for one or two people is difficult, I think.

    I cook only for myself and it's hardly worth it, except to stave off starvation.

    crock pots are great even for someone living alone..

    if im working construction or physical labor for 8+ hours.. make a huge pot... then divide it into 4 lunch meals for work... fucking awesome.. great deal... easy to do through out the long week... yea... cool. yep

    Whoever gets in from work starts dinner. if its me then its a stew or a casserole as i can be a bit lazy, so bunging everthing in one big pot is ideal... it also means i can chill with a glass of wine.

    I love to cook so for me it is not a chore and perhaps that is why I find it relaxing after working all day.

    I do batch cooking as well and freeze it in portions for the times when it is difficult to spend over an hour cooking. Mainly hockey nights or if I work really late.

    Something comforting about a good meal so making one is rewarding.

    Don't like to cook. I'm able, but I'm very fortunate in that I have people in my life who are happy to cook for me. When I get home from work at 8-9pm, I barely feel like eating, let alone cooking.
