Pick up a rotisserie chicken and some salad =]

Otherwise, for “easy”, my easy is like, eggs on toast. Or a turkey sandwich and soup. Or grilled cheese.

Tuna salad with frozen veggies? I usually have canned tuna/ mustard/ mayo/ bread lying around and veggies in the freezer.

PB&J!  Bring back the child hood!  Or maybe some mac and cheese?  I put a little hamburger in mine if I have it.  Or spaghetti is always a good stand by.

What stuff do you already have at home that you can use without having to go to the store?

Oooo gotcha. we actually have a rotisserie restaurant RIGHT on the way home. Like, 1/2 mile away….so i could technically park super close and get away with not picking one up at the store.

leftover turkey?! do you have broth and veggies? TURKEY SOUP!

I make stuffed chicken breasts when I want to do an easy dinner:

Preheat your oven to 400

Sautee garlic and spinach in a pan until spinach is wilted

Make a pocket in your chicken (don’t cut all the way through)

Stuff with spinach and cheese (I like goat, but I’ve used leftover brie that I had from a party and it was yummmmmmy!)

Seal up your pocket with toothpicks

Brown your chicken in the pan; transfer to baking dish and cook for about 8 minutes

 

Sooo easy and fast and really good!

Oh, my fave side dish right now is spaghetti squash; you just cut it in half and cook it until it comes out with a fork.  I serve with a little butter and salt & pepper, or you can put marinara sauce on it and pretend it’s pasta 🙂

Can you tell I’m trying to be low carb? 🙂

Chili .  It is super easy and the fiance LOVES it.  In fact he will often request my chili.

1 can pinto beans

1 can black beans

1 can of corn

2 large cans of diced tomatoes

2 packets of McCormick chili packets (I like 1 packet of mild and 1 hot)

Cut up green peppers and onions and brown 1 lb ground beef/turkey.

You can cook it over the stove for about 30 min. or in the crock pot for a few hours.

YUMMY!

Serve with tortilla chips, cornbread, or sourdough bread.
