another monday night of take out

i know ive made this rant before, but tonight it warrants repeating. i just cant take it. since i live in midwood where mountain fruit and glatt mart close before i get home from work on monday nights i spent twenty minutes waiting in line at jerusalem steakhouse for my dinner. apparently everyone but me eats cholent leftovers on mondays because the stores close before eight o'clock which is when i get home on mondays. the five others who ran out of leftover cholent were at jerusalem steakhouse on avenue m waiting for their dinners. i gotta get a job where i get home at six o'clock so i dont have to buy take out on mondays. either that or i have to cut out some of my sunday fun and make sure i have enough food for dinner on monday night. sheesh. the life of a single person.

Ah, but you're missing out on the joys of cooking. What a shame, it doesn't take long at all. Anyway, meat all the time is a "Jewish evil" which a G-d-fearing and health-loving person would distance himself from...

my point was that i would prefer to cook my own meal, but by monday ive run out of food, but the local grocery stores are closed before i get home monday nights so i can only get take out. this is the point of this post. yes i could walk half a mile to find an open grocery store on a monday night at 8:30, but im far too tired.

...is there no food that would last from Thurday? I mean, look at the Americans, they shop for food like once a month..

I highly recommend you get you hands on this and things like it:

It's pretty much a block of ice until you pop it in the microwave. It tastes great, it fills you up, it lasts a long time so you can stock up on them, and it's healthy.

hatzair-
i cant buy a month's worth of fresh produce. sometimes i can buy enough food friday, but i often need to replenish by monday. i dont have a monster sized fridge, either.
avi-
that's a great idea, but i dont own a microwave and i dont have any room to put one. i have a tiny kitchen .

Go shopping Sunday!
Pomegranate's closed by the time you get home Monday?

Buy whole chickens and freeze them. Monday morning, turn on crock pot, put chicken in, add sauce and it'll be ready by the time you come home. You can add potatoes around the chicken too.

Get a Zajirushi fuzzy logic rice cooker. It's pretty expensive but totally worth it. You can set it in the morning to the time you come home and the rice will be finished when you open your door.
