Fish out of a box and mac and cheese. It does not happen much anymore, but there was a time that it happened at least once a week!

PASTA PASTA PASTA. I always keep tons of it on hand. There's always sauce in the house too, marinara and homemade alfredo. I also stock up on canned and frozen veggies, cooked hamburger patties (costco has top of the line angus burgers precooked) and canned tuna (in water).

linguine, canned tomatoes, canned whole and chopped clams. add a little chopped fresh garlic and toasted breadcrumbs, you've got a feast!

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
