A super fast meal when you don't want to be fancy: sautée meat of choice w/ fat of choice in a pan. Sautée some veg or microwave them (unless you're adverse to that way of cooking) while that's going. Nuke a sweet potato that you've stabbed all over for 2.5 min, flip it over, give it another 2.5. I add 30 sec intervals if it's a large one after that as it may not quite cook the middle. Voila. A dinner. Add fat to the sweet potato, salt to the veggies, and you're done.
