Because of a post that appeared in another thread, I thought this thread might
be necessary. Let's try not to drool on our keyboards, though.

Oh John, not fair. Every one of those recipes are, hmm, quite homey and filing (except haggis). My best friend is an 85 year old Scotswoman, and she and her husband have fed me well. And now I have to try some of these. I make great scones. Sigh.

Do any of you single people have special "recipes" you've developed so
that you can eat something good without going to a lot of trouble? I'll
give you one of my examples.

I buy frozen chicken patties, marinara sauce, and shredded mozarella
cheese to make "chicken parmesan."

I put a frozen patty on a plate and cook it half way using the microwave
oven. I then take it out and flip it over. I spread about 1-2 tablespoons
of marinara sauce on the top and finish by sprinkling a generous amount
of the shredded mozarella on top of the sauce. I then put it back in the
microwave and finish cooking (until the cheese is nicely melted).

Add a salad and a glass of wine and you've got a meal!

I've thought about using a frozen, fully-cooked chicken breast for this
instead of the patty, but haven't tried that yet.

That sounds like a nice tip. Ill have to try that for lunch before I go to work. Im on second shift and Im tired of all the canned crap ive been eating for a quick meal.

I do like the frozen steakums. They cook quick and you can add onions and cheese plus whatever else you decide to put on them.

I improvised a lighter meal for myself tonight than I usually do.

Fried a frozen tilapia filet in butter, added some cheese, and cooked a package of ramen noodles.

Didn't even do dessert. Thought about baking a box of brownies, but I'm too sleepy.

Might want to reconsider the tilapia, if you google tilapia on the first page you get titles like "tilapia is worse than bacon".

Not sue the butter or cheese is a good idea also. I usually use olive oil, and if taste needs enhancing use herbs or spices, sometimes sprinkle with flaked nuts.

Quick dinner for one when Eric has to work super late - saute up whatever vegetables are in the fridge and serve with a side of cheese melted on toast - glass of wine advised.

I usually buy swai, not tilapia. Had no idea tilapia was bad, though. I also added some herb/spice mix. I know I should skip the cheese, but I can't help it; I don't like fish that much. Don't like olive oil. I'm not convinced butter is really any worse anyway. If I do need oil, I use canola.

I like canned salmon, yum, good substitute for tuna, which might be bad to eat, the tuna may be laced with 2 types of cesium if it's from the pacific... Radioactive tuna, tanks, but no tanks.

Not a public health concern

"All living things are radioactive," said Fisher, "primarily attributable to the naturally occurring potassium-40. The potassium-40 radioactivity in the bluefin tuna was over 30 times higher than that from the radioactive cesium. So, the radioactivity from the spill really only adds 3 percent more radioactivity than the background level."

Ramen noodles are good and fun, but it's always cracked me up because I can never really differentiate between the different flavor packets. They all pretty much taste the same - salty. ;~}

I don't do the instant microwave bowls. I cook 'em on the stove the old-fashioned way.

So you can really taste the difference?

I don't have the pan to cook on the stove, not reliably at least, that mainly adds heat to the house, I just smash it in the bag without rupturing the bag, empty both bags into the cup & add water. The cup is one that I own, I tried saran wrap, that lasted for a short time, I need a rubber band of the right size if and when I do that again.

I usually don't even bother with the flavor packet (because of the salt), but yes, I can tell the difference between them.

I quit eating canned tuna a long time ago. I don't even remember why, but
knowing myself, it may have had something to do with dolphins being
caught and killed during the tuna-fishing process.

Now I used canned chicken if I want something like a "tuna" sandwich, or
"tuna" casserole. But now we've heard that chicken sold in the US contains
arsenic.

Seems there's a downside to nearly everything we eat.

Salmon is a good substitute for Tuna, I'd once cooked Tuna Helper and used Canned Salmon, it was delicious.

Just saw an ad on tv for a new Taco Bell product, demonstrated by a skinny person. Do they really think we're that dumb? I guess so.

Check out the quesarito

I'd probably try more Taco Bell concoctions if they didn't feel the need
to add rice to everything.
