Wow thank you so much for all the replies. I am feeling very welcomed and help! I am extremely grateful with the comments everyone left :)
Funny thing, As I post this message, lifehacker
posted an article on cooking once a month (freezer cooking). I'm a bit of a tech geek :)
Ideally I would like to find something like this: One Shopping List for Multiple Meals - Chicken | Cooking For One by Ashley Lojko
Sadly, Ashley stopped her weekly menu list and she only has 3 meals :) I messaged her on twitter and she said she's not continuing that list anytime soon due to her travels..
At this point, I want to get my feet wet on independent living and surviving! But yeah the thing starts off with exactly what I should get at the market and plans out meals for me.
I found a website that offers something similar (one week cooking
), but I am unsure the $55 subscription is worth it. I found no independent reviews about the service, so I fear it might be a scam (or might not!). But regardless, I think I want a cookbook, that way I can interchange weeks (depending what's on sale at the market!). For example, the book might say the upcoming week is chicken, but there is a big sale on beef. I would do beef switch beef and chicken week :)
I think 7-Day Menu Planner For Dummies
has what I am looking for. I need to head to BN to thumb through it before I make the purchase (either online or at BN) to see if it is what would aid me on this.
@Eat More Love, I'll check out "Single Servings". I am heading to Barnes and Noble at some point this week. Sadly the Borders near my house close down.. I'm sure I can find the title and ISBN number via google or amazon...
@Dawgluver I did get the How to Cook everything app for the iphone. I find that would be easy once I know what I am doing and how to plan out the meals.
@Fabiabi I love baking. But I think I would go into a sugar coma if that is all I ate. My boyfriend said I make killer brownies!
do you have any recommendation on cooking program.
@licia The $5 rotisserie chicken at my supermarket seems to be my friend. It last me a food 2-3 days for the whole chicken! That would be great that you can give me a few names of cookbooks off your shelves. I would love to pick up your cookbook, do you know when it will be completed?
