Good, Easy Food in a Hurry

On Sunday evening I did not feel like making supper, but I knew we had plenty of food in the house so I didn't want to succumb to going out to eat.

So what to make for supper? I looked through the fridge, freezer and pantry, then I remembered a list of easy meals I created several weeks ago for just such an occasion.

I thought I would share my list of go-to meals with you in case, like me, you sometimes have a hard time deciding what to make, or just don't feel like cooking or heating up leftovers from the day before.

Good, Easy Food in a Hurry
  • pasta with sauce, veggies or cheese
  • quesadillas (usually canned black beans, salsa & cheese)
  • pizza - it's always nice to have a frozen one on-hand
  • soup (from the freezer or a can)
  • sandwiches
  • fried rice
  • frittata, scrambled eggs, omelet or similar
  • baked potatoes in the microwave
  • cereal

We had leftover rice in the fridge, so I decided to make fried rice by adding an egg, some frozen mixed veggies and a little bit of soy sauce.

What quick and simple meals do you like to make?


  1. I've been meaning to post a comment since you started your AMAZING blog. You are truly an inspiration! You have so many great ideas and I have been telling everyone to check the blog out. So for my quick meal...BLTs. I will fry up a whole package of bacon at a time and drain the grease off. Once it has all been cooled on a paper towel I put the bacon in the freezer for another day when I don't feel like making anything too difficult. Oh, and fried egg sandwiches are great too!

  2. Great ideas, Sadie! I put raw bacon in the freezer and just take out what I need, but I hadn't thought of putting cooked bacon in! I agree on the fried egg sandwiches too - I often have one for lunch!
