Cook-ahead meals - recipe ideas and inspiration needed!

The Oracle | | May 2, 2013 12:12 PM

My regular cooking routine has been thrown out the window. My husband started a night job so my valued time preparing dinner together is gone. Now, I'm cooking for alone (well, I should be cooking, but I haven't yet).

Ideally - what I'd like to figure out are meals to make that reheat easily (so I make them one night and he can take them with him for his dinner the next night). He has access to a microwave and a variety of containers/refrigerator, so as long as it can reheat in a microwave well, it shouldn't be an issue.

As I type, I'm realizing that most things I cook could likely fit into this category, but cooking alone has given me ZERO inspiration. So, I suppose that's what I'm looking for most.

Any thoughts how to get my motivation going? or meals that would fit the bill?
