I try to plan my recipes for the week in advance, but lately I've been feeling really uninspired. Nothing's grabbing my attention. I'm looking for suggestions for cookbooks, websites, recipes, or books in general that might help me get my cooking mojo back. [more inside]

I have nearly 3 pounds of rump roast left over from a few days ago. Half of it is sliced, the other half not. I think maybe soup is in order. It would certainly be freezer friendly and wouldn't go to waste. Any suggestions on what to do with all this beef? Recipes?

What's your favorite recipe that can be prepared ahead of time in bulk and frozen? I'm a single parent with a 13 year old girl to cook for. I work a normal job, then spend evenings doing the Mr. Mom number, housecleaning, clothes-washing, car-repairing, homework-helping etc. etc. My time for even minimal cooking is practically nil and I order pizza or bring home Chinese much too often. Does anyone know something good that I could make several copies of on Saturday and then freeze for later? Some years back Consumer Reports did a review of frozen chicken/veggie pies, and included a recipe for their own homemade and freezable pie that beat all the commercial ones on taste, nutrition and price. That's the kind of thing I'm fishing for here. FYI, I'm a middling cook (my biscuits succeed, my puff pastry fails.) Thanks very much!
