I can relate. When I lived in CA, since it rarely got really cold, I even grilled in the rain!! You just can't beat that flavor--oh, and the clean-up is so much easier!!

Remember in one of my earlier posts when I put my leftover roast with some gravy in those zip-lock plastic containers and froze them?? Well tonight I'm taking one of those containers out and warming it in the microwave, making some mashed potatoes, some squash, a couple slices of bread to put the roast beef and gravy on---walaaa--hot roast beef sandwiches. Fast, easy and little clean-up. And you all know that is "my" kind of meal.

Chili (using ground beef, canned tomatoes and a mix) served over a baked potato or rice

Tacos (with fixings)

I'll try to think of some more.
I was stuck in that "rut" again this AM trying to figure out what I am going to make for dinner. I decided to start at page one on this thread and I found out what to make. Thanks kaykay, I'm going with the stroganoff! Whew!!

Kaykay, I had the stroganoff tonight...I did add some mushrooms and I was having a glass of wine so I added a bit of that--why not?? It actually turned out pretty good! I like the idea of having the wine in hand and also a bit to add to your recipe!!

My dinners are so boring. Tonight I'm having yogurt and raspberries. Does anyone want to invite me over?

Why?? Is there a medical reason you are only eating something like this? If I wre single I would probably eat like that everynight. But, since my husband enjoys food I am stuck trying to figure new and different things to make. That is why I started this thread. I am domestically challenged!! But I am making an effort. As I said--if it were only for me I'd be doing the fast food thing or simple things like you mentioned.
