Mrs. F's secret (how she holds down a high-pressure executive job for Japan's largest insurance company and manages to prepare an excellent dinner every night after work) is by doing a marathon cooking every Sunday. She cooks and prepares meals for each day of the week so she can just heat them up when she gets home. This way, there's no craziness if her train is late, or if she's just tired. Zip, zap, zing, a hot balanced meal every night of the week. I'm a lucky dude.
