Start ahead...and save time

When you want to start cooking AHEAD this mashed potato recipe works:
There are no definite amounts. Usually 1 potato per person

Boil and mash your potatoes (some use butter, some whip etc)
Cook mash and place in a glass pryex container (large enough to hold potatoes and MORE).

Next day: whip cream (I use light). Amount: to cover potatoes
add shredded cheese you prefer
Mix these two ingredients together

Remove mashed potatoes from refrigerator.
Add the mixture of whipped cream and shredded cheese on top

Place in 350 oven The cream and cheese mixture will cook smooth over
the potatoes 10 - 15 minutes....or until golden color. Enough time to heat all through.

This recipe comes via an eldery friend. And you know they don't measure
most things. The taste is unique and all at the party loved it. If leftover
it reheats in micro. ENJOY

Smile A very quick sandwich

I always go with a slice of smoked turkey, cheese, tomato and lettuce in a couple of toast. I usually spread a layer of mayo over the lettuce. Tastes great.

"What's For Dinner Tonight?" is my everyday question that I ask for myself.

For dishes, I go for a saute' of mixed veges. It just takes 15 - 20 minutes of a single serve, if you have a ground meat, it can be added too. :)

Perhaps I am a little dense but what is a toaster bag sandwich? I am kind of assumiing it is a pre-prepared sandwich.

I was wondering too.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

A toaster bag is like a sleeve, open at one end so you can slide the sandwich into it and put it in an ordinary upright toaster. They were invented in the UK not long ago, the inventor took them on the TV prog Dragons Den, the three entrepeneurs rejected the idear. The inventor launched them and is a multi millionare now.

Wow! What a cool idea! Why didn't I think of that? Why didn't anyone I know think of that?

My go-to quick 'fancy' meal is Parmesan risotto in the electric pressure cooker. Takes 10 minutes. My go-to quick 'I don't want to lift a pan' meal is saying "Honey, make me a grilled cheese sandwich"... ;)

This is my in time recipe:
I had nam prik pao at a thai restaurant and this was the closest I could find to what I had. Now it's my go to easy meal. I get the thai chili paste from an asian foods store. I eat it with rice and the rice takes longer than the stir fry. I usually start the rice and then start chopping up ingredients. 15 minutes?

I have a pasta boat, and love it. I throw pasta in it, start up the microwave and by the time the pasta is done, what ever I want to stir into the pasta is hot and ready to stir in. Makes life a whole lot easier.
