Does anyone else just cook once or twice a week and eat leftovers the rest of the days? If so what do you cook? 3 or 4 days out of the week, I just want to pop food in the microwave, eat quickly and go to bed.

Well obviously stews, soups or braises. They actually improve in flavor after a day. Make a big batch of burritos or enchiladas and freeze. With just those you have almost endless possibilities for different dishes.

I cook my dinners on Sunday morning, after my weekly grocery run. Four in the fridge, three in the freezer for later in the week.

Each one is:
175g baked chicken breast
35g (dry) lentils
35g (dry) brown rice
90g frozen broccoli
50g chopped onion

I season the chicken before cooking, generally adding a bit more and some olive oil before eating. It's boring as hell, but it saves a ton of time and doesn't taste bad.

I've spent the last month living off roux-ed vegetables.

1. Cut and cook vegetable in salt water (cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, collard... everything really)
2. Make roux from 80g butter, 80g flour
3. Mix cooking water into roux until it has the consistency you like, add appropriate spices.
4. Add cooked vegetables.

Eaten with bread and occasionally sausages.

Good guess, it's straight from a traditional Austrian recipe book.

Three techniques, which can be used for an endless variation of flavor. If you think people are going to hold your hand while you piss in your pot on /ck/, you're sadly mistaken.

How well do soups and stews freeze? Should you salt them enough to prevent them from fully freezing?

That would defeat the purpose of freezing.
