What do you cook when you feel washed out?

There are times when we all feel too tired to cook. My staple quick meal standby is 'hay and straw' tagliatelle with butter, parmesan, black pepper and sage. It's quick and easy, and my OH loves it. What are your fall-backs? I'd love to know!

Delivery or take-out usually. Sometimes, we'll do a frozen pizza and doctor it up.

Scrambled eggs with whatever odds and ends I find in the dark corners of the refrigerator.

Definitely take-out, usually fast food take-out. Panda Express would be on my list, along with a burger and fries from McDonalds, Carl's Jr/Hardees, and Wendy's. I don't like Burger King's burgers, but their hot dogs are to die for.

Of course, my all-time favorite is an In-N-Out double double and an order of fries, but I always have to eat it there because In-N-Out is too far from my house to get the food home while it's still hot.

Leftovers, or generally scrounge for yourself. Often the SC will make a sandwich for himself.


Di, if I'm too tired to cook, I just don't prepare anything. Your meal sounds delicious.

Either a frozen meal from the freezer such as chili, soup, etc. or Chinese take-out (most often) or pizza.
