What kind of stuff do you usually cook?

One that I do a lot is a type of chicken Alfredo. I just chop up two or three chicken breasts and pan fry them in olive oil and seasoning, boil noodles, and dump a jar of Alfredo sauce in the chicken when it's done cooking. Then I just add the noodles when they're done. Takes as long as it takes to boil noodles and it's yummy! Plus there are different flavors of Alfredo sauce. I sometimes add tomatoes or bell peppers in w/ the chicken.

Try "hot dish" it's ground beef, corn, noodles, and tomato soup. Mix all together and heat up and enjoy!! I usually use 1.5#s of hamburger, 2 cans of whole kernel corn, 3/4 box of elbow noodles, and 3-4 small cans of tomato soup (until it looks well mixed and juicy but not soupy)

I always bake chicken stuffed with different cheeses and mushrooms. I make sausage and peppers onions with a little tomato paste and white wine over rice. Chicken stir fried with veggies steak also. Chicken with coconut milk and garam Marsala tomatoes a little sugar and chili powder. All healthy and easy

My family and I are big on roasts! Whether it be a whole chicken, pork or beef! I throw it in a big roasting pan, then add carrots, potatoes and onions along the way. All that's left to do is gravy. Very little time and tastes delicious! Plus we always have leftovers which is either used for lunches or other dinners later in the week.

I'm in college and work full time as well as take care of my baby. So when I need to cook for hubby and I it needs to be quick and cheap. I generally buy the ready bags of things from target. Like the chili's chicken Alfredo or p.f. Changes teriyaki chicken and rice or tgi Fridays popcorn chicken with fries or onion rings.

You can do hamburger helper meals. 1 lb of ground beef and then the mix. It comes in a box. I like them.

My hubby is also allergic to shellfish. I don't eat it around him and man I miss it sometimes!! Anyway, I do easy meals like Mac and cheese or ziti or just pasta. Just buy elbow macaroni or ziti noodles, boil them, throw some cheese (& sauce for ziti) & bake! I also stick to a lot of soups or salads because it's ready to go. Just heat! My 3 mo doesn't let me put him down! It has to be easy! Also hot dogs and scrambled eggs or potatoes. Veggies and rice. Easy quick stuff!

I do a really easy orzo skillet. Cook the orzo while you brown your meat of choice - beef, chicken, kielbasa, (and I just started using those chicken sausage). Anything you like. Drain orzo and meat, then combine. While hot, throw in a few handfuls of fresh spinach. Add your favorite seasonings and a drizzle of olive oil and stir.
