Postby Delicate Snowflake » Sat Jan 21, 2017 12:18 am

I need some ideas.

You get home & need a decent dinner but you're lazy, exhausted or both.

Share your tricks for sub-5-minute lazy cooking. :DukeGirl

The stir fry is an option, requires pre-thought (e.g. something suitable in the fridge/freezer).

I might have to adjust my shopping.

Without Lady D's 'magic stove' this is why stir fry would need prep.

The 5-minute target is a tough one, I know.

I can do eggs with baby spinach in 5 minutes, or cheese on toast, but am looking for more ideas.

Doc what can you cook in 5 minutes?

Grill Cheese ..

Make egg rolls ahead of time ..
and freeze them .. You can pull them out of the deep freeze and in five Min YES you will be eating ..

Cereal loaded .. With nuts , yogurt ,craisins ....WE will eat this when I don't feel like cooking.

variety of flavors in rice and pasta. just add a 5-7 oz can of chicken. takes 10 minutes. all thats needed is a half cup of milk and a little butter. total cost is about 2 and half bux. it really hits the spot for me.
