Thanks for helping a guy out.

I've got some pretty yummy, basic recipes on my blog like meatloaf, shepherd's pie, and stir fry. Maybe they'll be up your alley?

Bacon and eggs is always a good standby. And crockpot meals can have as few as 3-4 ingredients, and are quite simple to throw together. I did one the other day with a rump roast, carrots, onions, and parsnips.
Dice Monkey, I'm in Fredericksburg too. More accurately, Spotsy County, but with a Fredericksburg mailing address. Do you ever go to the farmer's market at Plank Road and Gordon Road? There's also a store near the Spotsy courthouse that sells meat, eggs, and produce from local farmers.

Protein. Veggie. Healthy fat. Spice.
Brown protein in fat with spice. Add veggie. Cook.
Easiest Version(Requires Pan, Burner, some kind of spoon/spatula): Ground beef, bag of frozen mixed veggies.
More Flexible Version(Requires above, plus... A KNIFE!!!): Meat of your choice, chopped into bite-sized chunks, veggies of your choice, cut up into suitable size pieces. Use whatever spices you like.
This is my default/go-to dinner when I don't have a lot of time.
Steak: hot pan, 5 mins per side (or less)
Veggies: 375 oven, toss with olive oil and salt, stick in oven for 30+ minutes
Whole chicken: 350 oven on rack in pan for 1-1.5 hours (depending on size).
350 oven on rack works for most large cuts of meat, time will depend on animal and size, there are basic rules of how many minutes per lb, google should know.
Pork chops: I like to add liquid smoke (only ingredients should be smoke and possibly water) and fresh ground pepper. Put a few drops on both sides of the pork chop, then pan fry in a bit of fat or you can BBQ it. Pan fry some asparagus in a bit of fat, with some Himalayan pink salt.
Steak: Get a fatty cut, season with Himalayan pink salt and pepper, pan fry or BBQ. After cooled, slice and drape over mixed greens and other veggies like cucumber, peppers, etc. I also enjoy adding sliced boiled eggs, some crumbled bacon and some feta cheese. I really enjoy it with either of these simple homemade ceasar dressing: Stacey's Healthy Kitchen: Killer Caesar Salad or Delicious Real Caesar Salad Dressing (Primal).
These are my go to meals.
