Just a few parallels, even between us.

I do the cooking for my girlfriend. At this point, my wife of forty-five years and I do all the cooking (an outlet for the chemist in me).

I never cook the same thing twice - most of my friend in college were Chinese (Taiwan, British Hong Kong at that time). I learned to cook properly then (no meal plan- everyone cooked). There's one real lesson I learned from one particular friend (slept on packing bubbles on his floor for a while - quite comfortable but noisy) and that was about ingredients.

What are the correct ingredients for what you are making? Whatever you have available, those are them. Mostly one-pot cooking (if you don't count my ancient rice-cooker).

A last remark - cooking take time and effort and you can be thinking whilst you do it. Doing it for someone in need must inspire some nice things while you cook, and later, while you/they eat.
