beer...it's the only thing worth having after work.
 
2012-09-06 02:24:10 PM  
Mac & Cheese. I could eat that every day.

You have a another meal between work and supper?
 
2012-09-06 02:24:45 PM  
In the summer: Grilled pork chops(at least 1" thick), rice pilaf, and a fresh veggie from the garden of some sort, maybe chard, maybe zucchini, whatever is ready.

In the winter: Pumpkin soup with beans and bacon.

logophile: ..you mean dinner?


yes, but was trying to make it for work days when you may not feel like spending more than half an hour cooking, as opposed to weekends or other days when you may have more time.
 
2012-09-06 02:27:09 PM  
I make a pot of charro beans pretty often and some carnitas or shredded chicken. Then we just heat the beans up and throw the meat with some cheese in a tortilla and have beans n' tacos.
 
2012-09-06 02:28:08 PM  
I steam broccoli and eat that.

I also make a stirfry of bacon and cole-slaw with teriyaki sauce.

Both takes about 10 minutes.

I had a classic bachelorette meal... paprika chicken and tomato & cucumber salad. Easy to shop for, and quick. My usual shopping list was just chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, and vinegar.

Take a chicken breast, thinly sliced, (or buy them whole and butterfly them, whatever) pound it down with the bottom of a coffee cup (didn't own a meat tenderizer). Salt, pepper, and paprika of your choosing on both sides. Drop it in a frying pan with a bit of olive oil... it cooks fast. Less than five minutes for the entire process. Always kept a big bowl of the salad ready to go in the fridge, it only gets better with time - tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, salt, pepper, rice vinegar. Boom, done.
 
2012-09-06 02:28:52 PM  
Roasted chicken breast with garlic butter, roasted red potatoes with red peppers and goat cheese in grape seed oil, and pan seared asparagus in sesame seed oil. And beer.

/It's what's on the menu tonight.

Breakfast for dinner is always a hit
Chicken and asparagus salad is also awesome
Or the classic noodles and butter

Shredded cabbage. I bought the pre-shredded stuff because I didn't feel like cutting it.

Kid pleaser -- Porcupine Meatballs

Ingredients:

1 egg
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
1/4 cup long grain rice
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon minced dried onions
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 dash pepper
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Directions:
In medium bowl, beat egg. Add 1/4 cup tomato soup, uncooked rice, parsley flakes, dried onion, salt and pepper. Mix well. Add ground beef and using your hands, mix lightly. Shape into 1-inch meatballs.
This should make about 20 meatballs. Place meatballs in a 10-inch skillet. Mix remaining soup with the water. Add Worcestershire sauce and mix. Pour soup mixture over the meatballs. Cook without stirring until mixture starts to boil. Turn heat to low. Cover and cook for 25-30 minutes, stirring very gently, occasionally.

I will never cook a thick cut pork chop again without brining it first.
 
2012-09-06 02:31:17 PM  
Anything I can fit in a tortilla.

I grab a bunch of veg and saute it up. Sometimes I add chicken or a Morningstar burger. Maybe sprinkle on a little cheese. Roll up tortilla and eat.

1) Cook up some pasta while a mafia movie is playing on my TV...usually my copy of Casino or Goodfellas....paired with a nice Chianti.

2) Cook a steak in a pan on the stove with some olive oil, paired with a veggie side dish and red wine.
 
2012-09-06 02:32:18 PM  
one of my favorites is to take a fillet of salmon or rockfish or cod or halibut, about 6-8 oz per person, put in a braising pan and cover with either canned tomatoes or diced fresh tomatoes, a few cloves of garlic, some fresh or frozen okra in slices, harissa, and some white wine or V8 juice to cover, put a heavy lid on it, and put it in a 425° oven for about 30-45 minutes.

total prep time about five minutes.

I get off work pretty early so most meals are the same as any other day of the week. But when I feel lazy I have a few stnd bys... So what would you guys rather have

Cabbage Rolls?
Tuna Noodle Hot Dish (Casserole for you out of towners)?
Oven roasted meat ball subs? (Super easy but uses processed ingredients)
Chicken Teriyaki bowls?
Kids Choice? (Not really a recipe but an easy way to get out of doing a lot of cooking)

Very simple:

Get some ground Italian sauasge. If the store doesn't have any, I just buy the uncooked links, cut open the casing, and dump out the sausage inside.

Cook with some garlic. Then dump that into your favorite pasta sauce (homemade or store bought). Add red pepper flakes and other spices to your sauce (if it is store bought). Otherwise, just let it heat up.

Cook your favorite pasta. Tubed shaped pasta works nicely here.

Mix and eat.

Simple and good, every time.

I always have to buy those for my sister when I have a cook-out; finally tried one. Wasn't bad. (wasn't a hamburger, but...)

If you put bacon and cheese on the Morningstar burgers, they're pretty tasty.
 
2012-09-06 02:39:59 PM  
Chilaquiles -

Tear up about 10 corn tortillas, preferably stale, then fry them for maybe five minutes and drain. Heat up a cup of salsa in a skillet (I like salsa verde, myself) and then simmer the tortillas for a few minutes - don't let them get soggy. Top them with some quesa fresca, crumbled, some chorizo or some shredded chicken, a fried egg or two, and some shredded lettuce.

So you like to have a nice bell pepper with some sausage on the side.

My simple pasta with red sauce is my go-to easy weeknight meal. It's simple, delicious, and takes very little effort.

1 Large Can Whole Tomatoes (preferably San Marzano or Glen Muir Organic)
1 Yellow Onion, peeled and halved
3 Tblsp Butter
Dried Pasta

(Optional: Red Pepper Flake, Fresh Basil, Garlic, Grated Parmesan)

1. Melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium-high heat.

2. Add onion halves to butter, and If using, add garlic and red pepper flake.

3. Pour in your can of tomatoes with juice, bring to a simmer, and then turn the heat down to medium-low.

4. Simmer for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally, using your spoon to break up the tomatoes as you stir

5. When finished, remove and discard (or eat) the onion halves, and salt the sauce to taste (also stir in fresh basil if using)

6. Serve over pasta with grated parmesan

Sometimes I'll make meatballs or italian sausage if I'm wanting a heartier meal, but the pasta with sauce is usually more than enough on it's own.

I should have included this on my list. Or at least breakfast dinner. But no real recipes go along with it.
