we are staying with my sister in law brother in law and nephews. We volunteered to make dinner and they have an extremely yucky kitchen fans on blowing around cat hair and other things 🙁
anyone have a recipe for a quick easy dinner that’s relatively cheap and doesn’t requite much prep?

Gross! Spaghetti with butter, cheese/parmesan and marmite/yeast extract mixed in at the end is really quick and tasty. But provided you have a bit of butter and cheese that can always be tossed through cooked pasta with a bit of seasoning.

Saute onions and garlic in Olive Oil. Add sausage (any kind), cook for a few minutes, until sausage is mostly cooked, add any fresh or frozen chopped veggies. Cover and steam until meat is done and veggies are steamed tender.

When we keep my 4 year old niece, we usually end up having pizza casserole: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/18781/pizza-casserole/ (she likes mushrooms and zucchini so we will also sautee those and toss in the sauce to make it a little healthier). It’s easy, and customizeable – so it can be as inexpensive as you want. It also reheats well.
Another meal that is super easy and fast is Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2011/05/zesty-lime-shrimp-and-avocado-salad.html which we often make when we have extra evening activities. If you use frozen precooked shrimp, the part that takes longest is thawing out the shrimp (which doesn’t take very long). It’s really good.

With the kitchen fan off, chop up a bunch of veggies (onion, tomatoes, brocolli, potato, zuchinni, etc.) and chicken breast or chicken sausage. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Put onto a large tray so there is space and pop it into the oven to roast. Then turn the fan back on.

I made a pot roast last week and all I needed was: pot roast, potatoes, veggies (celery and carrots), onion soup mix (1 package), 1 package of gravy. Throw in the crockpot for 8 hours on low…easy!
Pasta is always an easy meal

Is there an option to grill something? I would buy a fish and cook it stove top. Steam some veggies and make some quinoa. They sell quinoa in little packages that you can microwave.

Seemed like an important step:)

I had to laugh remembering the recent thread “How often do you vaccum”?

Can you call it a Chowder or Chili night?
