My husband wishes to thank each of you for contributing to this thread. He has enjoyed himself immensely since it's conception.

I've gotten out of my 'cooking idea block' and now allowing all these ideas to flow and have come up with some neat quick fix dinners that he actually enjoys. Thank goodness!

you guys are the best.

Oh yes, the Bertolli bagged meals are very good! I like the kind that has the cherry tomatoes in it. It's a little pricey compared to others, but worth it.

I agree. I would serve them to guests.

Wow...I know what I am fixing for this weekend. We just went under a winter weather advisory for tomorrow night and Saturday. Sigh...up to 2 inches snow accumulations expected.

SO, Beef Stew it is with a nice hot pan of fresh baked corn bread....how yummy.

Oh, I haven't had a sloppy joe in FOREVER! Have to keep that in mind for next week....

A blast from the past, that I had as a kid growing up, is tuna roll-ups. Follow the bisquick recipe for making biscuits, but roll it into a rectangle. Spread a can of tuna mixed with mayo over the dough. Roll up and slice. Place flat side on a baking sheet and bake according to the directions on the box.

Heat up some cream of mushroom soup meanwhile and pour over the roll-ups when they come out of the oven.

nic529 - I'm w/you - the only potato rolls I buy are Martins...YUMMY.

A thing I "make" when I'm pooped - Kraft Mac 'n Cheese w/Tuna stirred in.

I am not a big "lunchmeat" person but I'll buy from the deli cooked ham, get it "shaved" if possible or just REALLY thin (called chipped ham in Western Pa.) - dump it in a pot w/BBQ sauce and make sandwiches.

I was thinking about those the other day. Another quick meal would of course be Frito Pie. All you need is some chili, Frito's and grated cheese. On a cold night that would be good.

Turkey Roll-Ups - Flour Tortillas, Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese spread on them, sprinkle some grated cheese on, some small diced onions if you prefer and then layer some turkey and rollup. YUMMY! And these make GREAT traveling snacks for long car trips. Just wrap them in some foil or saran wrap, put in a ziploc and into the ice chest. For appetizers you make them then slice them into bite sized pieces.

We also do wraps w/ flour tortillas, lettuce, any meat from chicken strips to deli turkey or ham, bacon if you wish, shredded cheese, pickle slices (dh HAS to have pickle slices on ANYTHING that remotely resembles a sandwich INCLUDING grilled cheese, yuck), and some ranch dressing.
