Simply made

a favorite rainy day meal, when wanting to get something accomplished
inside is:
Bratwurst dinner
1. in a fry pan, steam with water, to almost ocver, bratwurst or ring bologna, pierce sausage a few spots with fork to prevent them rupturing
2. while that is cooking, steam potatoes in microwave, estimated
about 6 minutes, and then
3. steam veggies of your choice in microwave
for about 3 minutes, we like cabbage wedges. Cut meat at a diagonal and add steamed vegetables to plate, season with salt/pepper and butter

easy cleanup and no high calories misc ingredients

I love meals like that. And the leftovers (if there are any) are good the next day for lunch. When I steam my potatoes I add some sliced onions or some chives.

I make something similar to the OP's "quick meal", but I use Turkey Kielbasa & serve it with mustard & horseradish, butter-sauteed green cabbage, & boiled tiny little baby potatoes.

quick grilled roast beef or turkey sandwiches.
sour dough bread, lay out as many slices as u need. please protein on first then whole sliced green chilies and your choice of cheese. put together. heat grill or electric skillet to 350 and grill both sides tail toasty. my grandsons absolutely love these. i butter each side before i grill it.
