1. Grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato-basil soup - i just use canned tomato soup and add milk instead of water, plus dried basil and black pepper to taste.
2. Breakfast for dinner: pancakes (my toddler loves to help measure and stir), eggs, toast, any other breakfasty thing we have on hand (bacon, sausage, hash browns).
3. Chili with rice - brown hamburger in a pot, drain or strain the grease away, then add two cans of diced tomatoes, and one can each of kidney, black, and northern beans. Then add 2 - 4 tbls. of chili powder (depending on how hot or red you like it). Then, to taste, salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, dried minced onions, and a little bit of cinnamon. Let bubble for awhile and serve over rice. This tastes even better the next day.
