@secondchances: Ahh yes!  Excellent meal!  Just be careful though b/c some of those chickens have MSG in them.  🙁

Store-bought ravioli (that can be stored in the freezer) with tomato sauce or garlic-olive oil parmesan glaze.

“Breakfast for dinner” – omelets or scrabled eggs with onions, smoked salmon pieces and cheddar in ’em

Tacos – surprisingly easy

@kate169: The ones at Shop-Rite have MSG!!  I don’t know if you have those down there, but don’t get one from there!  I always get mine from Giant.  🙂

@lumos: Tacos is definitely our lazy dinner.  Or frozen pizzas.  Penne vodka with meat is awesome too.

@BoiledPNut: Holy crap.  Never knew that about the Shop-Rite chickens.  I’ll have to tell my grandmother.  She loves buying them.

Frozen pizza! With a veggie on the side! Or soup.

I made stroganoff last night that was easy, yummy, and pretty inexpensive. Throw chopped roast, some onion, green pepper, cream of mushroom soup, one can of beef brother and let it simmer for about an hour so it’s tender. Add some milk gradually, then some sour cream, Thicken if needed with corn starch. Serve over rice or mashed potatoes.

Easy, cheap, and can be made in a crock pot too!

Spaghetti squash can be cooked in the microwave in 7 minutes. Top with salsa.

Serve with salad.

I was going to say takeout, lol!

My grocery store also has a big section of freshly prepared food. It’s only slighlty less expensive than takeout, but it’s much more healthy – like something you would cook at home. If I’m running late or exhausted I’ll pick us out something from there as an alternative to takeout.

Oh! Also, I buy refrigerated cooked turkey meatballs, heat them up over the stove in sauce and boil pasta. Voila!

Another easy one: beef and rice with italian bread on side.  So delicious too.
