    Pretty much this. It is getting into stew and soup season, so I'll be working those in soon, as well.

    Can I move in with you?
  • breakfast for dinner
    eggs
    bacon

    bush's baked beans

    or
    Smith's hotdogs

  • Not one pot, more like one pan:

    Rub some skin-on chicken (preferably dark meat - leg and thigh quarters - I prefer that to whole chicken) with salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder, olive oil, and lemon juice. Place on a bed of onions and garlic cloves in a baking pan. Put cubed potatoes, rubbed in the same seasoning and oil mixture, around the edge of the pan. Bake until skin and potatoes are crispy and brown, and cooked all the way through. Baking time is about an hour, but you're going to need to play around with timing and temperature, because it really varies based on your oven. I find it works best to start with a lower heat, then boost the heat for the last 10-20 minutes. That way you get a chicken that's nice and moist inside and crispy outside.
  • Pot roast, potatoes, carrots and onion thrown in a pressure cooker with a couple cups of water.

    A potato wrapped in a soft taco? AWESOME, MAN!
  • I invented/discovered this a couple weeks ago by using whatever I had lying around:

    Sautee a pound or so of chicken in olive oil with one diced onion and some minced garlic. Add a can of low-fat cream of chicken soup, a pound of frozen spinach (thawed and drained), a can of RoTel diced tomatoes and green chiles (drained), and a can of black beans (drained).

    Line a baking dish with pie crust. Dump in one can enchilada sauce and chicken mixture. Top with shredded sharp cheddar. Bake. Devour.

    If I had it to do over, I'd also include corn in the mixture and jack cheese on top.
  • Oh don't peel the potatoes. lots of potassium and fiber in that peel
  • We will make chicken & some sort of noodle/rice pack a lot. Takes like 15 minutes and you have a pretty good dinner along with a frozen veggie. I also like to make big portions of stuff on the weekends (chili, soup, sour krout, chicken nuggets etc) and freeze them. Then I can reheat them and have a decent home cooked meal pretty quickly.
  • Protein (roast chicken, grilled steak, broiled fish) with veggies (roast potatoes and tomatoes, roast root veggies, steamed/sauteed greens/broccoli/beans) and some sort of grain (farro, brown rice, pilaf, quinoa, wheat berries)
    Pasta with veggies (kale carbonara, chicken and broccoli, puttanesca) and a salad
    Boboli pizza and a salad
    Chili and cornbread
    Minestrone soup
  • I also like pairing the roast chicken with pesto and linguini and parmesan
  • Also subby if you plan it right you can do decent meals fast. You can make steak, potatoes and corn on the cob in about 15 minutes pretty easily.
  • MsBagel: If I had it to do over, I'd also include corn in the mixture and jack cheese on top.


    F*ck yeah, that looks awesome.
  • There's a couple recipes in one of the diabetic cookbooks we have that get used pretty frequently. One is a stir fry, the other is "Italian chicken."

    They're tasty, easy and they keep well enough so I can make it ahead of time for when I have class and my wife and kid need to eat.
  • Spaghetti (any pasta really), garlic, basil, butter, tomato & cheese.

    Bachelor chow.
  • Tonight I'm going to try the Hungry Girl's "pasta alfredo": microwave a frozen Green Giant package of broccoli in cheese sauce and dump it over cooked whole wheat pasta.
  • iamrex: MsBagel: If I had it to do over, I'd also include corn in the mixture and jack cheese on top.

    F*ck yeah, that looks awesome.


    Due to it was pie crust on bottom and cheese on top, I knew it would be awesome. But it far exceeded my expectations, even. It really was amazing.
  • Last week when I was drunk I bought 6 bags of alphabet pasta on eBay. Tonight I'm making alphabet soup.

    That sounds just... just awful.
  • Baked chicken breast and a baked sweet potato
    Pork roast with Brussels and carrots
    Sliced cauliflower roasted with garlic and curry powder
    Char siu pork stir-fried with shredded cabbage and mushrooms
    Enchiladas or tacos made with leftover chicken or pork

    I avoid carbs for the most part, except in vodka form. I eat mostly meat and veggies, and avoid most processed food, except vodka.

    Vodka.
