I did find one good solution... a toasted sandwich maker!

Shove it all in, go have a shower, come back to a hot tasty dinner! :wings

I think I found the ultimate in lazy + yum cooking.

Step 1 = (preparation) my Beloved makes a chicken dish with mashed potato (3 days ago) and puts the leftovers in the fridge

Step 2 = I come home hungry

Step 3 = chicken + potato into frypan, tiny low heat, big knob of butter on top, go away for 40 minutes to shower/change/etc.

Step 4 = YUM the potato has cooked in the chicken juices + butter

We have several quick and cheap meals.
1- Campbells Hungry Man Sirloin bits soup over chinese dry noodles. This works with any of the beef versions.

2- Campbells Hungy Man Jambalaya soup. Add a couple handfuls of minute rice while you heat it up. Turns into a full rice dish.
I luv puppies. All kinds. Sweater are my most luv'd.

I think I found the solution.

Mustard + mayo from the cupboard.

Fresh rye (dark) bread, bought daily.

Butter from the fridge.

Some cold meats (whatever is on 50% sale at the supermarket).

95% healthy and sure hits the spot :wings

5 minutes is a tight timeline.
Eggs, scrambled, fried. Egg in a frame, butter both sides of a slice of bread, cut a hole in the center. Fry bread and center piece until browned. Flip, put a bit of butter in the whole. Break an egg into the hole, fry, flipping as needed until done.
Fried bologna
Avocado toast, add a fried or poached egg
Tuna or salmon salad made with canned fish
Yogurt with granola and dried fruit
Plethora of grilled sandwiches, if you have a Foreman grill they'll be like panini. Ham, tomato, basil, mozz cheese. Roast beef, cheddar, horseradish mayo. Peanut butter and banana. Chicken, avocado, jack cheese.
Steak cubes on the Foreman grill, add some frozen veggies or peppers and onions for an anti-shish kabob
Pita bread or English muffin pizza
Lots of stuff can be put in a tortilla for tacos. Scrambled eggs, sloppy Joe, steak cubes and veggies
Cube steak, aka minute steak. Jar of gravy and some instant mashed taters. Can do the same with deli sliced roast beef
Wedge salad with blue cheese dressing and bacon bits

All good ideas - and I am already the master of the <5 minute egg! (great minds think alike)

My current favourite involves my beloved. She is a health-freak gym-junkie type, and cooks up many kg (think 10+ lb) of meat (mince) with vegies and zero fat, she trims the meat...

... we put plastic containers of meat in the fridge for the week, also plastic containers of cooked black (wild) rice.

When I get home from my weird late shifts - I put one tub of the meat and one of the rice into the frypan on HOT... I think I am eating within 5-6 minutes :Clap

The plastic tubs are re-usable, they get a quick rinse, and the pan is non-stick and is about a 30 second clean-up.

If you have precooked beef and rice all you need is veg. Lots of frozen veg available but I always check to see that mine aren't from China.

I do the same... we had a big scandal here... fruit from China with hepatitis in it... a bunch of celebrities + lots of normal folk were caught up in this...

I am lucky my beloved's meat includes 2 or 3 veg :wings

My favorite quick and easy:


Steam rice. If you have a steamer you can go do something else while your rice cooks.
Throw some Chinese greens or broccolini in a very hot pan. Add some oyster sauce and some puff tofu. Kid loves this too.


Another favorite is polenta or grits with some stinky cheese, wilted greens and an egg on top.
