    What are some of your favorite quickest meals, aside from salads?

  • #2
    I've been pulling 12-hour shifts, which means get home, cook and eat FAST.

    Fry some meat.
    Steam or saute a vegetable.

    Done.

    Really, that's just what I do.

        IN addition to this I tend to cook something the day before, Yesterdays dinner was sauted veg with Chuck Roast roasted the day before. That day I are a ground beef mix ( not exactly chilli as i dont usually put eggplant in my chilli ) and put the roast on while i ate and got ready for the next day took it out after i got back from the coop and put it in the fridge. Tonight will be ground beef and a spagetti squash.

          I would love to eat more leftovers, but my dad always gets to them before I do. We roast a chicken, and he has an annoying habit of turning it all into chicken salad before it even cools, and I can't convince him to use any of my condiments. He also gets up early and devours whatever is left in the fridge and then throws out everything else if it's not his (talking to him does nothing). I've tried to get him on board, but he refuses to give up bread.

          I wish I could afford a dehydrator, but that's not a possibility right now. We had one, and I think my brother stole it for his own house. Most of the store-bought jerky I can find has sulfites in it, to which I am allergic.

          The ground beef and spaghetti squash sounds yummy! Do you mix them together and make any sort of sauce?

            I have to say that sounds really mean and uncaring. and perhaps a bit affluent. I cant afford to throw away food. :-)

            bake 5 chickens and see if he makes salad out of all of them , just as a check

            I intend to use the fresh tomatoes now that you remind me and some basil and garlic and uht oh i am humgry now and i dont have any food here

              Recently, I've just grabbed our fancy slicer (and tonight, I f'in cut my finger on it!), slice lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, bell peppers - pretty much anything that can be eaten raw, slice it up, smack on some dressing (sesame is my fav... damn!) and while I slice away, I fry, boil, steam or whatever, some meat or fish.

                  I don't disagree. But I think he maybe has early-onset Alzheimers, and he's just darn stubborn anyway. If he doesn't recognize something as his own, it registers to his brain as trash. He's sort of the same way about everything else in the house.

                    Use your oven. Right now I can't afford a dehydrator, so I turn my oven on to the lowest setting, leave the door ajar, and put a fan facing in towards the oven. A few hours later, you have jerky!

                      What fancy slicer are you referring to? I usually just use a big ol knife.

                        A favorite for me is a boneless pork chop beaten flat with a meat tenderizer and then coated in a tiny bit of almond flour, pork skin crumbs, salt, pepper and then fried in bacon grease. I use my Cuisinart grill and it only takes about 4 minutes to cook. Then I throw some frozen veggies from Costco into a microwave steam bag and I'm done.

                          Grilled salmon, top with sun-dried tomato pesto. Plus steamed broccoli or fresh green beans (toss with butter and sliced almonds - yum!) Quick, easy & delish!

                            just a thought... you can afford to pay the energy to make the jerky but not a dehydrator? Dehydrators are pretty cheap.
