Sauerkraut out of a jar.
 
2012-11-08 02:28:44 PM
Grilled meat (chicken, pork, beef), veggies (squash, broccoli, peas, corn), starch (potato, rice, bread). Occasionally, I'll make pasta and salad, or a pizza.

Pretty much this. It is getting into stew and soup season, so I'll be working those in soon, as well.

Not one pot, more like one pan:

Rub some skin-on chicken (preferably dark meat - leg and thigh quarters - I prefer that to whole chicken) with salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder, olive oil, and lemon juice. Place on a bed of onions and garlic cloves in a baking pan. Put cubed potatoes, rubbed in the same seasoning and oil mixture, around the edge of the pan. Bake until skin and potatoes are crispy and brown, and cooked all the way through. Baking time is about an hour, but you're going to need to play around with timing and temperature, because it really varies based on your oven. I find it works best to start with a lower heat, then boost the heat for the last 10-20 minutes. That way you get a chicken that's nice and moist inside and crispy outside.

Pot roast, potatoes, carrots and onion thrown in a pressure cooker with a couple cups of water.

A potato wrapped in a soft taco? AWESOME, MAN!
 
2012-11-08 02:34:38 PM
I invented/discovered this a couple weeks ago by using whatever I had lying around:
i217.photobucket.com
Sautee a pound or so of chicken in olive oil with one diced onion and some minced garlic. Add a can of low-fat cream of chicken soup, a pound of frozen spinach (thawed and drained), a can of RoTel diced tomatoes and green chiles (drained), and a can of black beans (drained).

Line a baking dish with pie crust. Dump in one can enchilada sauce and chicken mixture. Top with shredded sharp cheddar. Bake. Devour.

If I had it to do over, I'd also include corn in the mixture and jack cheese on top.
 
2012-11-08 02:34:42 PM
Oh don't peel the potatoes. lots of potassium and fiber in that peel
 
2012-11-08 02:36:11 PM
We will make chicken & some sort of noodle/rice pack a lot. Takes like 15 minutes and you have a pretty good dinner along with a frozen veggie. I also like to make big portions of stuff on the weekends (chili, soup, sour krout, chicken nuggets etc) and freeze them. Then I can reheat them and have a decent home cooked meal pretty quickly.
 
2012-11-08 02:36:50 PM
Protein (roast chicken, grilled steak, broiled fish) with veggies (roast potatoes and tomatoes, roast root veggies, steamed/sauteed greens/broccoli/beans) and some sort of grain (farro, brown rice, pilaf, quinoa, wheat berries)
Pasta with veggies (kale carbonara, chicken and broccoli, puttanesca) and a salad
Boboli pizza and a salad
Chili and cornbread
Minestrone soup
 
2012-11-08 02:38:10 PM
I also like pairing the roast chicken with pesto and linguini and parmesan
 
2012-11-08 02:38:21 PM
Also subby if you plan it right you can do decent meals fast. You can make steak, potatoes and corn on the cob in about 15 minutes pretty easily.

F*ck yeah, that looks awesome.
 
2012-11-08 02:38:44 PM
There's a couple recipes in one of the diabetic cookbooks we have that get used pretty frequently. One is a stir fry, the other is "Italian chicken."

They're tasty, easy and they keep well enough so I can make it ahead of time for when I have class and my wife and kid need to eat.
 
2012-11-08 02:39:56 PM
Spaghetti (any pasta really), garlic, basil, butter, tomato & cheese.

Bachelor chow.

Tonight I'm going to try the Hungry Girl's "pasta alfredo": microwave a frozen Green Giant package of broccoli in cheese sauce and dump it over cooked whole wheat pasta.

iamrex: MsBagel: If I had it to do over, I'd also include corn in the mixture and jack cheese on top.

Due to it was pie crust on bottom and cheese on top, I knew it would be awesome. But it far exceeded my expectations, even. It really was amazing.
 
2012-11-08 02:41:47 PM
Last week when I was drunk I bought 6 bags of alphabet pasta on eBay. Tonight I'm making alphabet soup.

Baked chicken breast and a baked sweet potato
Pork roast with Brussels and carrots
Sliced cauliflower roasted with garlic and curry powder
Char siu pork stir-fried with shredded cabbage and mushrooms
Enchiladas or tacos made with leftover chicken or pork

I avoid carbs for the most part, except in vodka form. I eat mostly meat and veggies, and avoid most processed food, except vodka.

Vodka.

I'm strangely excited about it. I doubt it will top eating a whole box of Annie's mac and cheese with peas tossed in but it'll be about a fourth the calories.
 
2012-11-08 02:47:14 PM
I also invented this. Moussaka meets shepherd's pie. It's a nice dense cold-weather comfort food.
i217.photobucket.com

It's layered in a baking dish: Ground sirloin and onions (seasoned with cinnamon, garlic, and cloves) with crushed tomatoes, raisins, and chopped spinach; a layer of eggplant (sliced 1/2-inch thick, brushed with olive oil, salted and peppered and broiled 5 min per side first); and a layer of mashed potatoes. Baked until the tops of the mashytaters started browning.

I make big meals and eat them for most of the week. Usually if I make more than I can eat in a week, I take the excess and stick it in individual size tupperwares in the freezer. Take those to work for lunch or just eat them on days I don't feel like making anything. So, I have a large variety of good foods at the ready pretty much all the time.

This is horrible, this thing.

An entire box of broccoli in cheese sauce is 150 calories. WHAT IS THIS SORCERY?

I swear, I really do "get" how much better for you the whole wheat stuff is, but damn if I don't like my starches and carbs bleached as all f*ck.
So do you like the hungry girl cookbook? I have a friend who swears by it.

I think it's that the "cheese sauce" doesn't actually contain any real cheese but I could be wrong.

Spanish Chicken and Rice when we are super lazy.

I don't have the cookbook. I just saw her do this on her show. I think most of what she makes looks really gross but this one stood out to me.

I really like whole wheat pasta in some applications. You really, really can't overcook it, though. And you have to salt the f*ck out of it, but I do that to everything.

I want to be your friend lol. I love those casserole type dishes just don't make them enough.

Goddamnit why am I not famous for some sh*t like that yet.

I kinda hate creamy sauces (except real mac 'n cheese) so that sounds kind of terrible. I love broccoli and I love pasta but the best sauce for me to marry those two ingredients is some kind of garlic and oil dealio
 
2012-11-08 02:53:10 PM
Porcupine meatballs
sloppy joes
mac & cheese with tuna and green peas

I've got a million of them -- I've been a mom for nearly 30 years. we rarely eat the same thing in a month -- maybe pizza twice.
 
2012-11-08 02:53:12 PM
Oh god, you're supposed to melt Laughing Cow cheese wedges into it too? I'm ... not down with that.
 
2012-11-08 02:54:15 PM
Does anyone know how the hell to keep a cheese sauce from breaking when frozen/cooled down too much?
 
2012-11-08 02:54:19 PM
Chicken and veggie stir fry, done up on my hot plate in my batchelor pad

!!! I had these once in my life when my great aunt and uncle served them at their farm. For some reason the memory always stuck with me. Do you have a recipe you can share?

It will probably be terrible.

NickelP: I want to be your friend lol. I love those casserole type dishes just don't make them enough.


Dude, casseroles are where it's at. That's just how I was raised. One dish, ALL THE THINGS.

There's this joke that goes, an elementary school teacher asked her students to bring in something symbolic of their religions for show-and-tell. A little girl gets up and says "I'm Catholic, and this is a rosary." A little boy gets up and says "I'm Jewish, and this is a dreidel." A little girl gets up and says "I'm Baptist, and this is a casserole."

That last little girl in the joke? That was me.
 
2012-11-08 02:56:18 PM
quesadillas. tortillas+cheese+heat. maybe some dippin salsa.
