"Tell me your favorite "pre-prepared" meals. "


  

          

A new years resolution is to cut my takeout/delivery food consumption. I can literally go weeks without a home cook meal.

I am not ready/ don't have the time for learning to cook more meals from scratch (I've got about 5 things I can cook confidently and that's it), but I am good with the stove and seasoning stuff to my taste.

So what are your favorite pre-packaged easy meals?

I've heard people rave about the Trade Joe's Kung Pao chicken for example.

1. "frozen dumplings"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

i'm the queen of this lol
not really but i try

i steam em in a bamboo steamer and eat it with vegetables i blanche/steam

but your best bet is really to get a freshly roasted chicken and whip up veggies real quick and there you go. at least health/$$ wise

ive been suspended from the coop for at least 2 months now so im suffering. i should be back in the game after this weekend but i was frozen dumpling it up. i usually get the trader joes ones or the ones from chinatown. all the good dumpling spots sell frozen bags of 50 to go for like 10 bucks but theyre only usually pork or veggie

4. "missing shifts!"
In response to Reply # 2


  

          

you miss a shift without notifcation, you have to do 2 to make up
first time i blew it off and if i had made next month's shift i'd still be in good shape (i would have time to do my makeups and still shop)

but next month i got the flu and didn't let them know in time.

so then i owed FOUR

now i owe them three. lol. it's been a busy time

if i do one more makeup i'll be allowed to shop again and have more leeway to do makeups

consumption are greatly overraggerated for healthy people with normal blood pressure.

that said, most americans are overweight and that in itself puts them at risk for all kind of problems related to salt consumption like heart attack, stroke, even if they decrease salt consumption.

I think people don't give enough consideration to the insanely high sodium levels found in those pre-packaged meals.

You really need to get a crockpot. Soups! Curries! Ribs! All lamb everything. You put your ingredients in before you go to sleep and turn it off when you go to work. Or prep before going to work and your meal will be waiting for you when you get home. Crockpot cooking really is one of the greatest culinary delights of my life.

Go get you a crockpot and make it do what it do.

In response to Reply # 0


          

make variations of the 5 things you know how to make

this is coming from someone who hates cooking but i have to or else
i'd have high blood pressure

you have more ppl in your family so it may be harder but cook a big batch of something on the weekend. at least enough to last through wednesday. you have kids though so you might need more variety.

but yeah please cook

all of his books are about cooking simply

How to Cook Everything is a start

but Niq96st is right, get a crock pot. google recipes. all you have to do is chop and prep (which you can do the night before) and put it in the crock pot and you come home to a meal

you can cook nearly everything in a crock pot-soups, stews, spaghetti sauce, desserts, even a whole chicken (which I have never tried)

a rice cooker got you on a quick starch
and veggies are quick to make

bam. dinner.

nor do i eat a lot of packaged foods, except frozen veg & fruit.

60. "Mexican Everyday by Rick Bayless is my go to cookbook"
In response to Reply # 11


          

Most of the recipes can be cooked in 30 minutes.
They are mostly a meat and veggies so they are healthier than pre-cooked meals.

Also he gives many riffs so you can change the recipe and suit it to your tastes.

For example one of my faves is chipotle shrimp.
Take a can of diced tomatoes and blend it with a chipotle pepper (or 2 if you like it spicy).
Add it to a pan with olive oil and a chopped garlic clove.
Brown sauce for a few minutes.
Add shrimp to pan, cook for a few minutes each side, add a little cilantro for garnish and you are done.

that's about it.

occasionally i buy a roasted chicken or some hot dogs.

right now i have hot dogs because i'm eating a lot of sauerkraut for probiotics since i just had part 2 of a root canal.

but for the most part i wouldn't rec'd them or eat them or really any packaged food regularly.

They have an assortment of delicious meals that they made in the kitchen THAT SAME DAY.

For each meal the price ranges from 6-13 bucks.

i have, but it's my favourite pre-packaged meal.

for the longest time i didn't know the rice paper comes hard and only softens when wet. so i'd look for it by the doughs and wouldn't find it.

Eggs are easy too. Hell, I make them in the microwave lol.

Rotisserie chicken, avocados, and eggs are my easy-eating trifecta, and all of them are healthy enough to eat every day.

In response to Reply # 34


          

Eggs are one of the healthiest foods around, and the idea that one should consume them sparingly has fallen out of vogue. In 2015, it's ok to eat eggs basically to your heart's desire.

The same goes for avocados, which were once feared to be too high in cholesterol, but are now appreciated as something we should eat on a daily basis.

In response to Reply # 33


  

          

the rage in nyc restos late last year was avocado toast

every spot was doing their own variation and selling it upwards of $10

nah b

i make a bootleg version with an english muffin, half an avocado, salt and pepper

toast, smear w/ avocado, season

you can make a creamy and thick dressing w/ it and some lemon juice olive oil

tastes good in sammiches

make a since side at dinner ( i still like to make sure i have leafy greens though)

In response to Reply # 33


          

Microwave it for a minute. It comes out perfectly round then put it on an English muffin with some bacon and make an egg mcmuffin. Or do a mini quiche in a mug. Or flax seed muffin in a mug. The main binder for that is egg.

The avocados I will freeze a lot of times and make smoothies. Vanilla, chocolate or strawberry. They're delicious on veggie burgers too. Really the taste is so mild, you can use them on just about anything.

it takes no time to expand your repertoire and the cool thing is that a lot of shit is connective, learn one recipe and realize that that one thing connects to about 3 and 5 other recipes.

you can seriously eat good as fuck if you cook at home and your pockets will thank you.


im dropping about 200-300 on groceries a month which is like a week of eating out every meal

>a week of eating out every meal


when i lived in nyc i did not cook for like 9 months straight
every meal was eaten out
i'd average $30 a day on food
$5 breakfast
$5-10 lunch
$10-20 dinner

sometimes i could repurpose the dinner from the night before as lunch the following day

and most days i spend $2 on a large cup of porridge from the dominican spot on 125/Lexington for my metro-north ride

that was nutritious and filling

hit the food trucks in front of 333 Cedar (i see you O_E) for a $5 lunch plate and im golden

I can only go so long with eating out before I lose my brain. there something extra nourishing about a home cooked meal.

I like to eat by a lot but I would be mad as fuck if I consistently ate every meal out.

let's say i want a good burger and fries
first i have to spend all that time going to the grocery store to get the ingredients
then i gotta spend the time at home cooking it
then cleaning up after myself

that's time

then on the cost aspect,
you can get a good burger and fries for $10 - $15 all over
but store bought fries will be $3-4
the meat will be $6 a pound (you not buying no half pound of ground beef from no store)
cheese will be $3
lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, etc that shit adds up

basically it's not much cheaper to eat at home for a SINGLE person than it is to eat out
i can go to one of them japanese places on UWS and get a $10 bento box and be on my way
go to a spanish joint for the $8 meals


nyc its always something to do so i dont have time to be in the house manageing a dutch oven for 4-6 hrs making a pernil when i could slide by some abuelita's shop on my way home from SOBs

dont forget rachelle ferrell will be at blue note valentines day wknd

NYC keeps you so busy and it's so hard to pass up the omnipresent ethnic restaurants and dinner invitations from friends. Oh, and my coworkers ALWAYS want to go out to eat. Bringing my food every day puts me at risk of looking antisocial.

I need to come up with a strategy for my budget and social life this year.

or $500 a month line item for household food budget
that does not include dining out (of course)
it is basically $125 per week in groceries
if i spent that much it would be all organic and gourmet type stuff (beef short ribs and oxtails and lamp chops)

i can get it down to $80 skimpinng here and there

if i went to $50 a week we'd be eating very unhealthy EBT style (rice a roni, boxed mac n cheese, minute maid OJ instead of Tropicana etc)

i think i avg $100 a week in groceries


but ol boy was spending $9,000 to $14,000 a year on food for one person if he spent that much weekly/monthly in a year's time

In response to Reply # 52


  

          

>>if i spent that much it would be all organic and gourmet
>type
>>stuff (beef short ribs and oxtails and lamp chops)


i guess i could do one 1hr trip each week but i like to go 3-4 times per week right after work to pick up stuff
spending 20-30 mins each time

once you know how to cook stuff it becomes simple

i had all plans to make chicken fried rice lasat night but wifey came thru the door hollerin bout she was sick and i'm on my own with the baby tonight so i switched it up and used the leftover roast chicken to make her a soup

i was thinking to take pics to show okp but just got to it and did it
wasn't nothing more than:

1. put a pot of water on stove to boil
2. add a chicken bouillon cube
3. chopped a onion throw it in
4. had two carrots been sittin in the fridge for weeks. rough chop then throw in
5. peel a few cloves of garlic then throw in
6. every spice i got in my cabinent damn near (salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, smoked paprika, one bay leaf and some crumbs from the star anise packet i had)

59. "you need 16 meals that will get you through a month. ORGANIX post"
In response to Reply # 55


  

          

but right here i can think of 16 meals you can cook at home
that are simple
that will get you through four 4-day weeks (fri-sun are cheat days and you can order take out)

i hate eating the same thing more than once a month (unless it is STEAK or tacos or something else really good that i like which are a lot of foods)
so i always make two-week menus in my head and try to not repeat nothing from the second menu on the first

1. steak, baked potatoes, broccoli
2. chicken breast, boiled potatoes, peas
3. lamb chops, baked potatoes, salad
4. pork chops, boiled potatoes, green beans

you cant really mess none of that stuff up man.
a simple equal part salt pepper garlic powder mix will be enough for all them proteins

this gives me an idea.....

61. "it takes some time but you gotta shop yo lol"
In response to Reply # 52


  

          

that's the good/bad thing about NYC
lots of places to shop but rarely is there one spot for everything as far as meeting price and quality standards.

i love the coop but it aint for everyone. especially if you have multiple adults because they make you ALL work (but you can always just lie and act single).

but you have the farmer's markets
court street has some great butchers
sahadi's got a good, reasonably priced selection for spices and cheese and other gourmet items

and i am all about chinatown for seafood and some produce. i make a little trip out of it. i try to go late morning/early afternoon on a saturday and i get dumplings or a banh mi and then hit up the big market on hester and elizabeth (if i need special asian sauces-they have good produce too).

then i head down grand. there are a lot of produce spots and fish places. the one on the south west corner of grand and chrystie is my favorite. they don't have fish on the ground swimming around like the other ones lol. i get a ton of salmon and shrimp there and freeze it after i portion them out.

if you bypass the eating along the way, you can do it in an hour

In response to Reply # 67


  

          

or even every month

also you can always make a trip out of it. if you're doing brunch, go to court street and hit up the butcher after. stuff like that.

los paisanos is the place for meat

i rarely make steak but that's where i go

i bought a ribeye that i cooked so perfectly i wanted to marry myself

it's not cheap but the quality is amazing. i keep meaning to go to get some stew beef and lamb so i can start making crockpot stews and possibly some homemade broth.

i bought 2 lbs of chinese spinach im trying to get through this week.not organic but it's fresh and $4. i do not fuck with any trader joes produce that i don't plan on using within 24 hours because it goes bad so fast. i'm surpringly almost done and i only cooked twice this week. i like to get that or bok choy and do different variations of asian food during the week (stir fry, add it to dumplings, etc). The chinatown produce lasts too. im lazy i just keep it in the same plastic shopping bag it comes in and it lasts for a week. it'd probably last longer if i put it in a proper ziploc

i dunno man i lost a lot of weight 4 years ago and i just want to maintain where i am at. that and im poor so i need to make sure i dont waste what i buy to cook/eat. my system isnt perfect but it's much better

In response to Reply # 74


  

          

i enjoy it if it's fast. lol.

i actually like cooking more when i'm repurposing leftovers.

because im banished from the coop im less enthused about cooking because all the fancy stuff i want/need is cheapest there. once im back in the game i'll enjoy cooking again. i'm already making my list for when i return

57. "some supermarkets sell pre-seasoned meat/seafood"
In response to Reply # 0


          

at the deli and fresh seafood counters

they prepare it in-house so no preservatives and less sodium than pre-packaged food

it's more expensive of course but if time and laziness are factors you can just put that in the oven too and not give your children hypertension

gnap.

I cook all my meals save for here and there. I usually cook a bigger dinner and have leftovers for the next day at lunch, and I love living this way. I'm saving a lot of money and feel good about what I'm eating.
