Make ahead for a novice cook

blkery | Feb 11, 201205:32 PM

Up until now, I cooked for my girlfriend and I - I worked halftime, she worked full-time. She's also a recovering vegetarian and a novice in the kitchen.

I took a second job and will be working 11-13 hour days. I'm not going to be able to cook much anymore and I'm hoping she can take over in the kitchen. I also see it as a great opportunity for her to build her cooking confidence - she takes it really hard when things don't turn out as described.

I talked about this with her and she mentioned that she'd like to make as much ahead as possible. We're both pretty healthy eaters - as for preferences, I don't like heavy starch meals, she doesn't like mushrooms, blue cheese, or eggs. Cheap is a plus as there's a definite reason I'm working two jobs ;D

I know there are always a bunch of these threads and I'm trying to sort through them, but I appreciate any suggestions and recommendations.
