lobeydosser sorry if this has been mentioned before. I lead a very busy life so full on cooking of meals is hard to organise, I never know from one week to the next what my shifts are going to be at work and then I run a Beaver Scout colony which takes up most of my spare time.
I bulk cook some meals and then freeze them. I make a meat based spag bol base and freeze it, minimum of 8 meals at a time, the same for curry and stew. Sometimes i bulk cook 20 meals of each.
Bulk cooking saves me money and time. It does take a bit or organising making sure I have enough of everything, cooking time wise I will spend a full day cooking, but the meals last around 2-3 of months if I go for broke doing 20 meals of each. All I then have to do is cook potatoes, vegetables (frozen) rice or pasta. This means I eat what I want when I want.
I buy foil containers in bulk from a catering company 1000 at a time and these stack really well in a freezer as they are all the same size. Portion size is fully adjustable and I am happy knowing it is all home cooked from scratch. If I want to microwave them for quickness when I get home from work I just take one out before going to work then transfer to a plastic bowl or jug to reheat when I get home.
