Frozen pizza!
Pasta topped with anything at hand
The freezer is often stocked with stuff I can nuke (soups and sauces made months ago)


I was going to ask what people do when/if they get cooking burn out. This does it. I can usually get the enthusiasm level going for the nice dinners where you get kudos from friends and family. But the day-to-day meals are starting to get old.

Frozen pizza is great, when you can find a good one.

Cooking burnout, oh yeah. But, I can always get enthusiasm for the meal for a guest(s).

The absolute worst food emergency is a cup of ramen noodle soup here. The closest shop is at least 4 miles and no wine there anyways.

I have far fewer things I can throw together in a hurry while I'm doing low carb.

I could bore for England about gravy. I have step by step photos on how to make gravy (the traditional kind you have on a roast).

If you have trouble sleeping one day give me a nudge and I'll post them.

20 minute frozen pizza:i like my pizza thin & crispy so i always have a pack of flat breads,chopped tomatoes,chopped onions & grated parmigiano reggiano in the freezer & a bottle of olive oil that i infuse with garlic & basil on the counter & a jar of black olives in the cupboard.i also have a counter top oven for everyday cooking that gets to 500f in about 10 mins.in from work after another 10 hours savage entertainment at the hands of an uncaring public,oven on,suit off,flat bread out,brush with the infused olive oil,onion, tomatoes & olives on,sprinkle with parmesan,in the oven for 10 mins(no need to defrost anything).....pizza from scratch in 20 mins!
