my husband cooks for the week.  that way we can just grab lunches and dinner and reheat.  it works well for us.  we’ve been doing it since we lived together (i did it before hand too) and works even better that we have a son and another on the way. 

sometimes i have a late lunch and am not hungry, sometimes my husband doesn’t want to eat.  some nights for dinner, i just want a bowl of cereal.  don’t be offended when it happens with irregularity. 

i’m also not sure why you had to throw most everything out. the roast beef can definitly be eaten as left overs.  and sometimes i eat salad the next day.  it’s better if it isn’t covered with dressing and you can put it on the next day.  but can still be eaten.

I would just whip up a few meals on a Sunday and freeze them in portions for the week. This is what I did when I was working crazy hours. It took about 2 hours on a Sunday morning but I’d whip up 3 different things, portion them and freeze them for the week, usually things like stir fry, curries, soups, lasagne, pastas, pie etc. That way you still get time with your child when you get home from work, you’re still eating a decent meal and if you husband wants to eat he can eat too.

loden :  Why isn’t your husband doing the cooking? Even if he isn’t hungry himself, he could still cook for you and your child.

I don’t know why you have to take on all the cooking responsibility. It is the 21st century after all.

Have you considered trying to eat breakfast together instead? It is actually considered healthy to eat your biggest meal earlier in the day, and eat a lighter supper.
