Brown chicken in a skillet (I used either boneless breasts or thighs), dump in a jar of salsa, bring to a simmer and top with a bag of broccoli slaw. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Fried rice with veggies and egg. If I have meat cooked already I'll add that (chicken or pork).


I freeze cooked rice in one cup amounts and use as needed. I cook it up with the veggies on hand and add soy sauce, ginger, and so on. It's cheap too! Mostly I like using up the broccoli, carrots, mushrooms and so on I have in the house. (I guess you could use frozen mixed veggies but I always think they are too blah and not a good texture).


I love breakfast for dinner so often will have omelets or pancakes.


Really, taking homecooked food out of the freezer is the quickest best. Last night I reheated frozen homemade lasagna and prepped a green salad. It was muy tasty and done in 15 minutes. Overall I try to double batch and freeze half. This weekend it was a big pot of bean soup, used two lbs of dry beans, 16 cups of liquid, and so on. Now I have a go to lunch when needed.

Sautéed Brussels sprouts or haricot verts, with a touch of Mexican chorizo (cook the chorizo, scoop out the sausage, cook the veg in remaining chorizo fat), topped with a fried egg (runny yolk is a must), crumbled cotija cheese, and crispy breadcrumbs. 15 minutes, healthy and delicious.

Aglio E Olio, adding whatever leftovers or veggies are available. Fake a garlic bread even from loaf bread, by a smearing of butter, minced garlic and broiling or baking. Salad stuff ifen you have it. A glass or two of wine and you are doing gourmet! Dessert can be a kiss...

A couple egg yolks whisked with some lemon juice and zest, pepper flakes, S&P and olive oil. Cooked pasta mixed in and then a bunch of arugula that wilts with the heat. Parmesan on top.

That kind of sounds like egg foo young..no?
