Don’t misunderstand. I can cook, but I just really don’t want to be bothered with it. They made microwaves and frozen meals for people like me.
Even so, I have learned some fairly simple ways to eat quickly with minimal effort.
1) You can bump up the flavor of a jar of spaghetti sauce (I use Prego, but whichever you like), by adding a can of marinara sauce to it. Only downside is that you then have a LOT of sauce. If you have a family, or friends invited over, it’s not a problem. If it is just you and one other person, you’ll be eating a lot of spaghetti. I also use frozen meatballs to add to this. I read somewhere that it was better not to mix the spaghetti and sauce together, so I store them separately and just add the sauce on top when I heat it in the microwave. I store the meatballs in the sauce.
2) Pork tenderloin. Not the cheapest thing out there, but easy to fix. I usually watch for sales and can get it for $3.50 or less/pound. There are a lot of fancy ways to fix these, but I just rub it all over with seasoned meat tenderizer (more for the flavor than the tenderizing part) and stick it in the oven. Then I can eat several meals, just changing what I eat with it (vegetables, salad, etc.).
3) This one is more work-intensive upfront. Fix taco meat according to the package instructions on the taco seasoning (usually it calls for 1 lb. of meat – I’ve used either ground beef or ground turkey). Meanwhile, heat up some beans (I prefer black beans). Shred some cheese (or you could buy it pre-shredded if you want, though that is usually more expensive). Use burrito-size tortillas. When the meat is done and the beans are hot, I zap the tortilla with cheese on it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds – just enough to take the chill off it and slightly melt the cheese. Then add a dollop of meat, a dollop of beans and wrap into a burrito. Afterwards, I tend to mix the meat and beans together (drain the beans) and store in the fridge. That way, for subsequent meals, I just take out enough for a single burrito, heat it in the microwave and put it on the tortilla/cheese. Usually I’ve shredded enough cheese initially to last through all the burritos. So some work upfront, but then fairly simple after that. I’m a minimalist so that’s all I put in my burritos, but you could add whatever else suits you. I don’t care for quacamole or salsa, but I know many do.
And there’s a good start for you. The only thing easier is if you can get someone else to do the cooking…
