A favorite house management skill that I've learned over time is to cook in bulk. I'm really not one of those persons who cooks for three days and then has all of their meals ready for a month - although I admire them greatly. I'm really more of a - "I think I'll triple or quadruple dinner to keep myself from having to cook 3-4 times in the future" kind of girl. This works better for me because I purchase meat by the whole steer, and I don't want to thaw meat, cook it, and then refreeze it. I also like to use fruits and veggies that are in season, so partial bulk cooking works best for me.
