I love this recipe because if you're out of ice you can still make it.

1. Pour a bowl of lucky charms, while sighing at how messy the roommates have left the kitchen. Again.
2. Open the fridge and discover that the carton of milk that you've purchased and labeled with your name is missing.
3. Look around and discover it sitting out on the counter, warm, next to a half eaten bowl of your lucky charms.

Mmm, dry angry cereal for dinner.

Sapper_Topo: 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)

Let me know

Lemme guess: Minnesota.

xanadian: For a "simple" meal, I slice a turkey breast into 1/2" thick strips. I put a bit of extra light olive oil in a skillet & heat the oil. Once heated enough, I then put the strips in the skillet. I season one side with Zatarain's Creole seasoning. While that fries up, I slice a tomato into chunks. I flip the chicken over in the skillet. Just before it's done, I toss the tomato chunks in there and sprinkle a little more seasoning on them.

As a side, I cut up a head of broccoli and eat that farker raw. I have about a tablespoon of Olde Cape Cod chipotle ranch as a dip.

I also have a glass of chardonnay with it.

that's some kind of magic skillet you've got that turns turkey into chicken.

"Fark you*" chicken:

cut up celery, carrots and onions, rub chicken with salt/pepper/whateverspicesyoulike
put in oven somewhere between 375 and 450.
Cook until done.
Eat a few bites of skin
Eat chicken and veggies.

Mac and cheese
Sous vide roast (technically it takes days, but the only real work is at the end) with roasted potatoes and some other veggies, use the juice to make a mushroom shallot red wine reduction.
Chicken alhambra: diced chicken, chorizo, onions and peppers, avocado, sour cream on tortillas.

This was our week.

/wifery accomplishment unlocked

*Fark you chicken used to be just plain roast chicken, but my in-laws managed to piss me off so badly one time when I was making it that it was renamed f-you chicken. You WILL eat this meal and you WILL like it goddamnit.

Welfare lasagna:

1 lb hamburger (or ground pork, or lamb.. dealer's choice)
Pasta, again, dealer's choice, I like elbow noodles.
Sauce (canned or homemade)
Dealer's choice seasoning

Cook up meat, seasoning as you feel fit, add in sauce, from can, home made, or sloppy joe sauce....
Cook pasta as meat is cooking.

In a loaf type pan (i.e bread pan, anything deep), put a layer of pasta, cover with cheese, layer of meat, cover with cheese and repeat for the depth of the pan. Or just make a 1 layer dish.

Fast, cheap, super simple and HOLY HANNAH! it's filling like you wouldn't believe.

brown 1 pound ground beef or turkey; remove from pan
sweat ½ medium onion, ½ green pepper and ½ red pepper until the onion is transparent
add 1 clove (or more, to taste) garlic
return meat to pan with vegetables
add 2 15oz cans stewed or diced tomatoes and a tablespoon of ketchup
cook, covered over medium heat for about 5 minutes
serve over cooked rice or elbow macaroni (which you have cooked at the same time as the rest of the stuff)

I can usually throw this together in about a half-hour (unless Mrs. The Bird wants to help, which will add another 10 minutes ).

Welcome back to the tasty table.
Do you perchance have any raspberry jam or preserves in your refrigerator right now?
I'm here with Jan and Michael Stern and we'll be seeing what Farkers like for a quick meal on the go.

Don't judge. It's actually really good.

I don't know why they call this stuff hamburger helper.
It does just fine by itself, huh?

As a chef, that's actually a fair topic. Typically, I fix something fast at work, before I come home. Lately that's been a lot of wraps. Pastrami, mustard, Swiss or provolone, onions, scallion, and some leafy greens. Occasionally, I'll break it up, and make a steak burrito--plenty of rice and fixings at the gig.

Before work, I usually scarf down a bit of yogurt and a piece of fruit. Keeps me from grazing all day long. Stoopid bacon bin, just STARING at me from above the flat top...

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.

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.

soosh: logophile: 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.

Right, that's why I understood the headline to be. You bunch of negative nancies.
