Ahh, I fondly remmeber the days of suburban living and take-out, or *gasp* delivery!
For emergency nights here, it's brown rice and black bean burritos, made with a can of those diced tomatoes with jalapenos. I always have salsa, etc.
Sloppy Joes. You can just brown burger and add ketchup and some seasonings and let it simmer. Kids love it.
Pasta and dried tomato pesto. I dried a ton of tomatoes from the garden. I grind up 5 or 6 slices per serving, with a small handfull of walnuts, a clove of garlic. Add olive oil and parm cheese. All done, no cooking. Serve over HOT pasta with a garden salad. Tastes like you worked hard!
Quiche. Frozen pie crust, 6 eggs beaten lightly, tomatoes and summer squash or zuke and cheddar, or spinach and mushroom with feta and onion.
Real oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar and walnuts and cinnamon.
Tacos. I just cook the lump of frozen burger. I keep the shells on hand, always have salsa and cheese. Sour crm makes it a party! (And I don't buy that nasty mix. I cook the burger, drain if ness, add can of tomatoes with chiles, simmer for a while)
Soemtimes I do frozen burgers and dogs. I just book 'em frozen, they're fine.
And let's fess up now. How about..........cereal? WHo hasn't given the kiddos a bowl of cereal on a really bad night?
