Exactly.

Not a big s'more fan here either. I was more into pie irons and pizza (to keep this OT I used jarred pizza sauce ).

Almost forgot about Slop. A package of frozen mixed vegetables, Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, a bit of chicken boullion or BTB, a can of sliced mushrooms with juice, and some cubed Velveeta. Maybe some water to thin it out. Nuke for a few minutes. It can be turned into soup in the next few days, if there's any left.

My favorite way to eat graham crackers is with cake frosting layered between. Mom always made extra frosting and would make these up for a quick "cookie" snack.

I'm digging up an old post because I have been all about easy with work hours!
I make a tuna slop.... canned tuna, cream of whatever I have, mixed veggies and a box of kraft Mac and cheese. Mix all, add breadcrumbs and bake. I love it!
I had an ex that made me dinner once. It was chili cheese chips, a can of chili over it and melted cheese on top... microwaved. It was a little hard on the belly but he tried
I make quesadillas a lot on the George Foreman. Chopped prepared chicken and cheese on tortillas with salsa, guacamole and sour cream.
Easiest dinner on the grill or oven is taking one chicken breast in olive oil, salt and pepper, thin sliced potato on top a couple slices of green pepper and onion, a squirt of BBQ sauce and a sprinkle of cheddar.

No one in my family likes graham cracker crusts for a pie. They would rather eat them just as they are for a snack. So whether it is a cheesecake, or some other recipe calling for graham cracker crust, they are quite happy with just a regular crust. A lot of times I will just use a Phyllo crust. That is always a hit.

Another crust I hate is the Ritz Cracker crust. Ritz Crackers are just too sweet for my taste buds. I am more interested in the main ingredient of the pie than the crust. The crust is just a vehicle to be able to serve a slice in one piece.

It seems that the older Jeannie and I get, the less we eat..
That said, I seldom create a full meal with all fresh ingredients anymore..
I suppose its true that the majority of our meals are "Semi Homemade Lazy Meals"..

The exception is my newest hobby of dessert for two baking..

While I cook very simply now, I truly enjoy the efforts of all DC members...

Used to be a Sandra Lee type long before I ever heard of her. Started getting into cooking with mostly fresh ingredients probably more than 20 years ago. Can't see myself reverting.

I'm not big on graham crackers either. On the rare occasions I make s'mores, I use saltines. I also tend to use nilla or chocolate wafers for crusts instead of GCs.
