Easy peasy: Zatarain's Red Beans and Rice, done to package instruction specs, add chopped Bell pepper, onion, garlic. Cheapo smoked sausage, diced, goes into the pot @ boil time. For better or worse, it counts as authentic N'Awlins.

Grill steaks, baked potato, broccoli and salad.

Broiling steaks in a cast iron skillet is a favorite. Only takes about a half-hour, pre-heating included. I highly recommend the book that taught me how to do this- "How to Cook Everything" by Mark Bittman. Most recipes I've tried from there have been great.

If I just need a quick snack before dinner, I go for potato chips with ketchup.

For a real meal, I like to make up some fish tacos with crunchy shells. I can't make them as well as Drysdale's 2 makes them, but I do my best.

shiat dude, you need to move to Canada...we make the chips with the ketchup already on them, saves a big mess!

I make a mean turkey chili. Also a great egg white omelet. Both quick but good.

I roast a frozen boneless, skinless chicken thigh for an hour with a sprinkle of Jocko's mix (local rib joint) on top.
One hour at 350F.

===

After a couple of years I decided to switch to breasts instead of thighs. Stupid move; no flavor. Thighs from now on.

It's just about ready to come out of the oven now. Almost but not quite as good as McD's. If I had a deep fryer they just might be as good. The oven just doesn't do it justice and filling up a skillet with a shiatload of oil isn't happening.

Canned chili burritos,
canned chili over pasta

Sorry, I can't cook for shiat, mostly. I try, but ... it's almost always disappointing. I make a pretty good mac and cheese (from scratch, not that shiat in a box), but I don't make it often, because it's usually more trouble than I want to go to.

Those nachos up there look pretty good, except take away that farking cilantro.

Parboil some nice, waxy potatoes (Kipflers, Nicolas or Dutch creams), then slice then and put them on the griddle with some oil. Follow them up with a nice, thick eye fillet steak and a tomato cut into halves. Onions and/or mushrooms optional.

naughtyrev: CapeFearCadaver: vudukungfu: I'm going to do that this weekend, I bet I could trick the neighbor's kids into eating meatloaf if I told thm it was meat cupcakes. (with ketchup frosting, too. )

And bacon sprinkles.

Line the cupcake tins with strips of bacon before filling them up with meatloaf mixture. Go for the gold.


MIght used deli sliced chicken breast for the lining.

I will second the call for crock pot dinners and tacos. I will also put forward my favorite "clean out the fridge" meals. Grilled stuffed anaheim peppers. Take the top off the peppers. Seed them. Fill them with leftover chickenbpeef/pork/whatever. Top with cheese. Place on hot grill for 5 minutes per side.

Expolaris: On days that i work out i want something quick and simple that's been prepped ahead of time so i only take 5 minutes once i actually want to eat.

[3.bp.blogspot.com image 850x637]

Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork - fire and forget cooking at it's finest. Cooked on low for 6-8 hours in a crock pot on the Sunday before until the fat boils to the top (for removal), and then the rest basically falls apart. Add sauce (not too much that's where a lot of the calories can come from), seal and heat as you need some.

You can eat it by itself , in pork fried rice (oh lord thats good shiat), and in a sandwich with some coleslaw on top (only sweet slaw damn it). Makes for an meal that i usually pair with steamed veggies and a salad of some kind - filled with baby bella mushrooms, carrots, onions, and a few tablespoons of fat free bleu cheese dressing.

also, BAGGED LETTUCE CAN GO fark ITSELF. This brand of greens is delicious - put them in your face hole and feel healthy. Especially their spinach if i want to make some quick chicken pitas wraps.


Why are you in my kitchen!!!?

soosh: BullBearMS: 1.) Get a slow cooker. (Crock Pot)

2.) Let it cook dinner while you're at work.


Slow cooker Pork Chops with Dressing

6 Pork Chops (this recipe does not work well with completely lean chops)
1 Diced Sweet Onion
1 Can Cream of Celery
1/4 C. Water
1/4 TSP Pepper
Box of Stove Top Stuffing


Put the chops in the slow cooker. Add the dry stuffing on top. Next add the diced onions. Then the soup right out of the can. Add the water and finally the pepper over the top.

Turn the crock pot onto low and go to work. Eight hours later, it's done.

When you get home, steam a veggie and unbag a salad. Done.

crock pot meals may very well be next week's subject.


What about sous vide? It's slow cooked like a crock pot, but you're not stuck with everything being a stew or meat plus goop.

soosh: crock pot meals may very well be next week's subject.


I'm in favor. It's hard to beat a crock pot for easy meal making on work days.

Although, as others have mentioned, pressure cookers are pretty awesome ways to speed up cook times. (and improve flavor)

The other trick is to work ahead on weekends and make a couple of things that can sit in the fridge or go into the freezer and will reheat well. Heck, some things get better as they sit in the fridge.

Add in the trick of laying out everything you're going to wear to work the next day before you go to bed and your day to day stress will be much reduced.

Open a box of Zatarain's and follow the directions.

While it's cooking, cut up some sausage (i use hot links and adouille) and brown them in a frying pan, then toss them in in the Zatarans.

Cut up some onions and peppers and saute them in the same frying pan, add a lttle garlic and oil if you need to. Throw these in the pot.

Add cooked ham and cooked chicken breast (I'm lazy, so I use stuff from the deli section of the supermarket).

Throw in one can of kidney beans and a can of diced tomatoes.

Total time, 25 minutes

Red Beans and Rice

Three cans of Red Beans
One can of Rotel Tomatoes
One package of Cajun Style Smoked Sausage

Slice up the Sausage. Dump it and everything else in a pot. Heat.

Make some rice.

Surprisingly good for nearly zero effort.

East Indian style coconut curry vegetable stew (microwave)

Ingredients:

The rest of those carrots in the crisper that you need to use up.
The rest of those sliced baby Bella mushrooms that you need to use up.
Two small yellow onions.
5 jalapeño peppers (I grew these!)
3 medium potatoes
1 small can (5.6 fluid oz) coconut milk
A couple tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)
Salt (to taste)
Ground turmeric (didn't measure, probably couple of tablespoons)
Ground red chili (East Indian red "chili powder") (didn't measure, probably half a tablespoon)
Ground coriander (didn't measure, probably a tablespoon)
Ground cumin (didn't measure, probably couple of tablespoons)
Whole cumin (didn't measure, maybe a teaspoon to half a tablespoon)
garam masala (didn't measure, probably couple tablespoons)
Ground cardamom (didn't measure, probably a tablespoon or so)

Basmati rice, 1 cup dry = about 3 cups prepared. (cook on the stove while preparing the stew)

Cooking:

Clean and slice carrots to desired size. I like mine fairly large chunks. Put in large covered microwavable casserole and cook for about 5 minutes to get about half done.

Set aside in a separate dish, wiping out the casserole.

Wash, pierce and bake the potatoes, just until the skin wrinkles up and set aside to cool. Should take about ten minutes or so at most, in the microwave.

While the potatoes are cooking, coarsely chop the onion. Core and slice the peppers into the same bowl with the onion. Set aside.

Let the potatoes cool in some cold water, so that you can peel and dice them without burning yourself.

Remember the casserole dish? Put the ghee and all the spices in there. Cover and microwave for 4 to 5 minutes. You want it to sizzle. When/if you see/hear the whole cumin seed starting to pop, it's ready.

Add the onions and peppers and coconut milk to the casserole. Be prepared for a loud sizzle when you do!

Stir, cover, microwave for 5 minutes or so.

Add the diced potatoes (you DID dice them at some point while something else was cooking, right?) and the carrots to the casserole.

Stir to coat, cover, microwave for 3 or 4 minutes. Add salt if desired.

Add the mushrooms. Stir to coat, cover, microwave for 2 or 3 minutes.

Fluff the rice. Serve stew over rice. Makes four nice servings.

BLT's people. I have the luxury of growing my own beautiful L and T, the farm next door provides incredible Bread choices (rosemary-asiago, jalapeno-cheddar, etc) as well as local hickory smoked bacon. Roast a few Pueblo Chilis to throw on there for an extra bonus!

Everybody loves bacon! Eat whole grain bread, organic tomatoes, and live lettuce. Very nutritious.

Now this is a good idea. Goddam my laziness.
