If I'm "too tired to cook", I don't cook, di! No real stand-by meal for this girl. Unless you call opening a can of Progresso soup "cooking".

If I go on strike in the kitchen, I'll send Himself out for Chinese or to the local pizza joint for a calzone. That's if we don't have sufficient leftovers in the fridge. Most nights I think the leftovers get together and make more leftovers...

Same here. If I'm too tired to cook, I don't. Usually it's takeout pizza. If we have a frozen meal, like PF Chang's or Bertolli, DH will cook that up.

+2 to what Beth and Uncle Bob said. My fave go to for "those evenings" are eggs of some kind. Doesn't take too much energy to fry up an egg for a sandwich or scramble a couple.

If I'm too tired to cook, it's a lead cinch bet I'll be too tired to do any dishes, too. So yeah, takeout. I keep those coupons from Burger King and all the other hamburger places for just such an emergency. That way when I do get takeout, I'm not spending every cent I have.

Too tired to cook last night I craved a cheap Aunt Jemima microwaveable scramble eggs, 2 strips of bacon and hash brown patty. I didn't have any so today I looked for them at 2 major grocery stores and they didn't have ANY Aunt Jemima products on the shelves! It must be due to that recent recall of some Aunt Jemima products.
