I'll help eat, too.
I like to bake. Thank goodness I havae moved closer to my extended family that enjoys baked things. Yesterday The Cake Lady (aka Mom) had me over to bake a double batch of my Molasses Sugar Cookies. Most of them are safely at her house and with one of my sisters.

Could you cook and then freeze in serving size packages and then reheat whenever the mood strikes? That way you get the pleasure of cooking and don't have to eat something for days on end (been there, done that!).
It is fun to cook, and that way you enjoy the benefits of your labor many times throughout a week or month. And days you don't feel like cooking-instant meal :)

Thats the way I do it. Before I got hurt, I worked 6 days/ week. I was to beat to try to cook for 1 every night. I cooked on Sunday and made single portions to take to work. I had been using plastic to store and cook them in but chemicals in the plastic come out into the food when you microwave it so I receintly got some pyrex bowls instead.

Being single, one thing I do is to cut my meats in single serving sizes before I freeze them. I also make the whole pound of pasta & them portion it into baggies in 2 carb increments then freeze them. Then all you have to do is pop the baggie on a paper plate & heat it in the microwave.
