We didn't make a special meal - ordered in because DD1 was sick. Yummy, though - pizza and salad from one of our favorite places. Have to plan for next week!   PS Found this recently. Love the suggestion. Thinking of trying it next week:   Six Steps to a Healthy Weeknight Dinner http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20780484,00.html
Here is an idea I tried once - one-pot wonders. I made the Italian Wonderpot. Easy and my family liked it.   Italian Wonderpot http://www.budgetbytes.com/2013/05/italian-wonderpot/   One-pot Wonder Cheeseburger Casserole http://4sonrus.com/2013/08/26/one-pot-wonder-cheeseburger-casserole/   Spinach and Artichoke Wonderpot http://www.budgetbytes.com/2013/10/spinach-artichoke-wonderpot/
My main ones are also pasta & sauce or tacos/burritos/rice & bean bowls. The rice cooker is great. A lot of things can be made in 1/2 hr. to put in a slow cooker if you have one. Here are some others:   Red lentil soup with spinach and lemon http://www.pinkofperfection.com/2011/03/red-lentil-soup-with-spinach-and-lemon/   Soba noodles with broccoli and tofu Cut up tofu and broccoli in small pieces and when the water boils for the soba, put them in with the noodles....

 Looks like it's spaghetti and meatballs day. I will be making the roasted cauliflower on the side, and maybe a salad if I get ambitious!
To clarify, our town has no charters, i.e. public schools run by private entities. We have magnets, which are regular public schools that take students from their neighborhood as well as others who win the lottery to attend. There is no test to get into the magnets here. They are K-8 (other schools K-5 and 6-8) advertised as having a special focus - technology or modern languages. However, all the schools and programs follow the same basic curriculum with some shift in...
I agree with your assessment. In our town, the magnets are used to some degree to get out of the neighborhood schools because there is a perception that the neighborhood schools aren't as good. Not true, in my opinion. And magnet entry is by neighborhood and then lottery anyway, so they are not the type of school where you go if you excel in math, the arts, whatever. I kind of don't see the point.
Hope the odor thing gets better soon! Can you do cheese? Lots of variations on grilled cheese/panini that might work for dinner.
The lasagna rolls look good! I have been making soups like that, too. The other day it was veg soup - box of stock, some frozen mixed veg, onion, garlic, potato, sweet potato, frozen green beans and seasoned with some red pesto. Tonight was Thai green curry vegetables with rice and cucumber saladTues - Pizza with store-bought crustWeds - Taco salad with ground beef and black beansThur - Spaghetti and meatballs Somewhere in there will be roasted cauliflower, too.
