WHAT DO YOU COOK WHEN YOU DONT FEEL LIKE COOKING??

Anybody else a big fan of semi-homemade?  I do like cooking from scratch but when I dont feel like cooking, pre-made items really help me get through my funk.

I made 3 cheese stuffed tortellini with alfredo sauce, petite peas and turkey meatballs and a side dinner salad.  Most of the items were pre-made but I was able to put together a nice dinner when I really wanted to just order pizza, so I saved some money!

 I did a similar dish last week, tortellini with alfredo sauce, peas and a little leftover ham from the freezer, with salad

 I usually pull out a meal from the freezer that I've previously made.

 I also keep a package of kielbasa or smoked sausage  or ham steak for nights like this. The package keeps a long time. Then I either serve on rolls or saute with cabbage or onions & peppers or add a can of baked beans, plus a salad or veggie and done!

Same here.  I always have turkey kielbasa in the fridge.  It is my go-to meal when I need something quick.

Chili, Mac and cheese, baked beans with kielbasa, chicken in crockpot with BBQ sauce, instant mashed, and a veggie. Or the very occasional 12 pack tacos from Taco Bell.

If I really don't want to cook, I don't. We order food, otherwise I might make pasta or brats if I'm just having a busy day.

Leftovers, if I don't have those pasta goes over well with my son he likes it with just a tiny hint of sauce.  If i just cant cook hot dogs and fruit, big hit.
