One thing that came to my mind right away is to make tacos or taco salad.  That would only involve fresh ingredients (shells or chips, ground beef, seasoning, salsa, lettuce, tomato, cheese) and be simple to put together in any quantity you want.

You could cook spaghetti in the skillet by putting the pasta in with water, cook it, drain, add sauce and ground beef.

Get some pre-cooked and portioned chicken breast (it even comes canned), frozen veggies, and make a stir-fry in the skillet with some soy sauce and olive oil.

Tacos, wraps, etc. came to my mind as well.

Pretzel chicken- liked fried chicken, but use pretzels instead of bread crumbs.

Any kind of hash with potatoes. They won’t need to be refrigerated until after you cook them, and you can always grab some fresh veggies or something on your way home from work so they don’t take up fridge space while you wait to cook them.

 

Peel/cube some taters, fry them in the bacon fat (I’m assuming you’d use bacon but you could use any kind of meat that will produce a littl grease), and then add some peppers/onions toward the end. Maybe top with some cheese 🙂

@MrsCarnival:  Bacon! 

Bacon makes me think of bacon and eggs – breakfast for dinner.  Omelets are also easy.

@Pearberry:  That sounds interesting do you dunk the chicken in egg before you dip it in the pretzels?

I can almost feel your pain. We’re moving but our gas won’t be turned on for at least another week! Long story. So basically we’re surviving on grilling, griddle-ing, and crockpots for a while. We have a full size fridge (freezer included), thankfully.
