    I'm all about delicious quick & easy meals:

    -Hobo meals: hamburger patty, seasoning, cut up carrots, potatoes, and onions wrapped in foil and cook for 1 hour at 350; or throw on the grill.

    -Crunchy chicken:

    4-8 thawed chicken breasts (depending on size)

    1/4 c mayo or miracle whip (I like the mayo version better)

    1 pkg chicken-flavored stove top stuffing mix

    1/4 c (or more) grated parmesan cheese

    Coat chicken breasts with mayo. Mix stuffing & parmesan in a pie plate and cover the chicken on both sides, and place on foil-covered baking sheet. Discard the leftover stuffing mix. Cook at 375 degrees for 25-30 min.

    -Tacos: (my new favorite variation) spread warmed refried beans on a flour tortilla, then wrap around a hard-shell taco filled with ground beef (cooked with taco seasoning -add a can of corn to the meat, it's delicious!), cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro, and/or taco sauce.

    -Brazilian meal: black beans (with or without hamhocks) over rice, topping with fresh crisp lettuce and a fried egg or two. It sounds weird but it's my family's favorite dish!

    Also try yahoo's food home page: I peruse that page frequently. Another recommendation, invest in a cookbook that contains 4 ingredients. That way you save time & money in the kitchen. Crockpot dinners are also a great & delicious way to keep you out of the kitchen!
