Oooh that sounds good! Minus the fact nobody here would eat it lol.

What about quesadillas (sp?) or chicken wraps? Those are quick and pretty cheap.
The george foreman and crockpot are my favorite ways to cook.

George foreman makes them so easy! I just throw something together. Then let the george foreman press/heat it.
We love some chicken, cheese, and a tiny bit of bacon rolled up then pressed on the GF. So easy!

I recently did a workshop at my speaking club about creativity in the kitchen, which I declared requires three things:

1. a backup plan (pbj, canned soup, frozen burritos --anything that makes it so you feel free to experiment a little and maybe fail a couple of big times a year)

2. feed your brain (cookbooks, websites, ask questions [yay!], eat out, watch cooking shows, try new things)

3. feed your pantry (check out your local farmer's markets regularly, look for local ethnic delis and markets --you can often buy unusual foods in suprising places, buy things you've never seen before, never tried before, never heard of and google them when you get home)

I have an attention span issue when it comes to cooking: I HATE making the same thing over and over again. Hate it. Want to kill people and destroy things. So, just having a pantry filled with Indian, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, French, Greek, Italian, German, Iranian, Turkish, Aussie, English, Scot, Spanish, Equadorian, African, Portuguese and Canadian herbs, spices and condiments means I can make it a different way, even if it's kinda the same as the last 100 times I made it...

I like going to allrecipes.com and kraft.com to browse recipes. I recently tried something called "angel chicken' and it turned out REALLY good. You can throw it in a crock pot on low for 4-5 hours or high for 2-3. I will be back with the recipe. :)
