If you like eggs, then you can make a frittata, which is simply a baked omelet.

Pre-cook the stuff you want to mix in, like onions, sausages, chicken pieces, asparagus, ham, whatever you want.

Then mix up the eggs, splash a bit of water in, and season well with salt, pepper, and maybe some hot sauce and/or garlic powder. Beat well to get bubbles incorporated (makes a fluffier end product).

Put your non-egg ingredients in a small baking dish and spread around the bottom of the dish. Now pour the eggs around these ingredients, and bake at about 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. You can tell if it is done by jiggling the baking dish -- you don't want it to slosh around, otherwise it still needs to cook.

The nice thing about this dish is that it can be different every time, and you don't need to learn anything new. You can also use up leftovers really easily!

Vanilla ice cream topped with a shot of baileys irish liquer is a nice dessert and little flaked chocolate or grated chocolate
Adult jellies, make up jelly with half water and half sparkiling wine. pour into moulds over mixed berries. lovely and refreshing. instead of booze could use lemonade to dissolve jelly too or elderflower cordial.

Make the mince for the Bol but instead of adding it to pasta, top it with mashed potato for a cottage pie. Put some grated cheese on top of the pie, place in the oven at 180C (or whatever temp in F you would use to reheat) until the cheese has melted - all the ingredients of course are cooked, so provided you haven't allowed anything to cool, it is ready to rock.

The mince can also be used for tacos, burritos and nachos or place into a lettuce leaf cup and roll up.

Get a couple of lamb chops, rub with honey, garlic and balsamic vinegar, sprinkle with salt, pepper, dried parsley and dried chives. Put in the oven in a baking dish at 180C for about 20 mins, or until the lamb is cooked (turn half way thru cooking). To make a mini roast dinner, add your choice of veges that have been zapped (two-thirds cooked) in the microwave, into the pan with the lamb, making sure they have some oil and seasoning over them.

Too many restaurants, not enough time...
