Ok, I guess its not that lazy if I'm cooking right? Anyone have any easy, delicious, recipes they would like to share? I usually look on pinterest for recipes, but haven't been on there in a while.

If it don't come out of a can, a box, a delivery vehicle or a freezer we don't eat it.

I make pasta salad with fresh mozzarella cheese, cherry tomatoes, and pesto. I use whole wheat pasta and sprinkle a little balsamic vinegar on it. Easy and yummy. 

I buy a box of shrimp scampi, and boil pasta with frozen peas. Pour scampi on pasta/peas, sprinkle with parmesan and some red pepper flakes.

I will do big, full, salads. You can saute chicken, steak, fish, whatever-or even just use chopped up ham or turkey from the deli. Top a bagged salad with that and whatever else you like. I like steak with cheese and french fried onions. Not healthy, but sooo good.

Brinner is easy. And sandwiches. Oh, and rotisserie chicken and frozen veg!

I also do a few crock pot recipes-Pepperoncini Beef, Chicken Tacos, Beef Stew, Chicken and Dumplings. I feel like these are ones "everyone" does, but if you need a recipe let me know.

If I think of anything else I will post it...

found some decent yummies here, but they need doctoring as far as spices and such. I like the one that is chicken, rice, creamed soup and bake. I added some frozen peas/corn to it...good stuff.

I love Campbell's soup recipes. These days one of my fave foods is

any cheap cut of steak or chicken

1 can cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup

1 can of water

1 package Lipton onion soup 

mix in crock pot

serve over rice or mashed potatoes

with tossed salad or a veggie

I will sometimes add peeled carrots and/or quartered, peeled potatoes to the crock pot

i make an easy beef stew out of a roast cut into 1/4" cubes (brown it in a pan w oil s&p), potatoes the same size, carrots and a can of peas. i don't peel the carrots or potatoes, just scrub them well, so that makes it faster. for broth, i buy the mccormick beef stew seasoning packet, just add water. i simmer the browned beef in the broth on very low for 2 hrs, then turn it up to a low boil and add the potatoes and carrots. when they're just tender, pour in a drained can of peas and voila.

for an easy chicken pot pie i buy the premade, rolled crust and fill it with 1 cooked chicken breast (i poach it on the stove in chicken broth) in 1/4" cubes, raw cubed potatoes of the same size, sliced carrots, frozen peas and frozen corn. i mix the filling ingredients together with a jar of chicken gravy in a bowl before dumping it into the bottom crust and covering it with a top crust. i keep it covered while baking at 400 for 45min and then uncover for the last 15min and turn the temp down to 350.

Stir fry is my easy meal and we eat it more often than DH would like.  I can have an entire meal ready in  20 minutes.  I try to change it up by adding different meats.  (chicken, shrimp, beef)  Sometimes I use soy sauce, sometimes sriacha and sometimes teryaki.  Near east boxed rice pilaf is easy to prepare and pairs nicely with most of my stir frys.  I have exactly one hour from the time I get LO home to get him fed and bathed so stir fry affords me the opportunity for some play time as well.

Other than that, anything I can cook on the grill makes for a fast meal so we do that often as well. (steak, bbq chicken, shrimp, burgers)

An easy pasta I throw together includes basil and garlic (I buy the frozen cubes of herbs from Costco), chicken, spinach, portobella mushrooms and grape tomatoes.   I usually use ricotta filled tortellini, toss it all in basil EVOO and top with a sprinkle of parmesan.  DH and the baby both love it!
