I am a commuter. 40 miles round-trip into the city and back. There are lots of evenings that by the time I am done fixing dinner it’s almost time to go to bed. GC has attempted cooking a couple of times but believe me no one really wants that. He is great at lots of things but with the exception of biscuits cooking ain’t one of them.
So, because I am a hope for the best but plan for the worst kinda gal, I like to be ready for the days that I do not have time to cook. I have 2 friends that I rely on: Leftovers and Freezer.
This past New Year’s Day I cooked a big batch of hot wings and fried potatoes. I froze a 1/3, ate a 1/3 that day and used the last 1/3 for lunch Monday and dinner tonight. I cook extra at least once or twice a week so I always have a ready-to-go meal in the freezer. I do not like prepackaged convenience foods so this makes homemade meals easy when I’m pushed for time. Lots of times if I’m running late, GC will take leftovers out of the freezer and have them ready when I get home.
I love that about him.
