When I have time to cook - I make it a session. Cook LOTS of stuff so it’s in the fridge and freezer to eat. Also, I make myself use the food in the fridge… I don’t let it go bad and it’s not a financial waste.
Sometimes, I throw raw veggies in the freezer as is. The okra is in the cardboard carton purchased from the farmers market, waiting ‘til I have time to use it.
