Here's one of my quickies: (around 20 minutes total)

Broccoli Potato Soup

1 pkg (2 lbs) frozen hash brown cubes
5 green onions, cut up
1 tbsp butter
broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces (amount doesn't really matter)
2 cans evaporated milk
2 cans creamed corn
salt & pepper
potato buds (yes, instant potatoes)
grated cheddar

Put frozen potatoes in soup kettle, cover barely with water. Heat on high till boiling, then simmer. Meanwhile, put onions and butter in dish and microwave on high till sauteed. Microwave broccoli with a bit of water till tender.
Once potatoes are soft, add onion/butter mix and broccoli to soup kettle. Add milk & corn. S&P as needed. Use potato buds (small amount at a time) to thicken soup. Top each individual serving with cheddar.

Yep, I've done that one too. Pizza, I've never met anyone that doesn't like pizza. Our favorite is the meat lovers with stuffed crust.

Then I've been know to drive out to Sonic, Burger King, Taco Tico, or Mc Donalds for something quick and the hubby and grandkids always like that.

i do angelhair with a 5-minute really basic marinara or jarred pesto.
or i season up a steak and throw that in the broiler.
or if i have any fish thawed out, i sprinkle on some old bay and some pepper and broil that.
sometimes even peanut butter toast and milk are good enough. filling, balanced and still hot food.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

When I don't feel like cooking......it's often Pancakes for dinner. It's quick, easy, and my almost 3 yr old will eat them. Other options are Mac and Cheese or grilled cheese. My husband rotates b/t shifts of 6 wks of days and 6 wks of nights. I do very little real cooking during his wks of nights.

Funny you asked this today b/c I'm planning on making pancakes tonight!

If I am just a little hungry it is popcorn or chips and salsa. If I am more hungry than a snack it is usually scrambled eggs with chives and fontina or guyere and toast.
