    "Dump Soup"

    1 large can Veg-All mixed vegetables (DO NOT drain)
    1 can corned beef (not the fresh kind in the meat locker, the kind in the "canned meat" aisle)
    1 small can tomato paste
    1 small can tomato sauce
    Various and sundry spices including (but not limited to) oregano, thyme, basil, chili powder, pepper...whatever you like
    1 good-sized or 2 small bay leaves

    Dump it all in a soup pot, break up the canned corned beef with hands, add 1 veggie canfull of water, heat to simmer and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes or so. Goes great with a pan of cornbread. Refrigerate leftovers...even better the second day.

    This one's my husband's favorite quick meal...It's a good, quick and a (semi-) healthy alternative to the "other" stuff my boys insist on eating...pizza, hot dogs, pretty much anything that comes outta a box.

    This recipe my husband made for me within the first few weeks of me meeting him.

    Brown a few chicken breast, set aside

    Saute chopped cilantro; a small bunch,
    two or three sliced serrano peppers
    and half a chopped onion in olive oil

    In a baking dish, cover bottom with sliced tomatoes
    Put chicken on top
    then cilantro mixture
    then another layer of sliced tomatoes
    Cover generously with sliced Monterey Jack cheese
    Bake @ 350 for 45 min-an hour.

    He served it with homemade spanish rice. The dish is to die for, and he is the bomb!

    Golden West brand frozen tamales, one per person. Steam them, following directions on wrapper and observing the time. Start basmati brown rice cooking when you start the tamales. Make guacamole and refrigerate. Prepare small bowls of cut-up tomatoes and cut-up cheese. Go away. Come back when tamales are about half done, by the clock. Turn them over. Go away again. Return when they're done. Peel them. Serve everything.

    Chicken Supreme

    1 pound chicken breasts (usually cut into chunks)
    2 cans cream o'chicken soup
    Stuffing Mix
    3/4 lb Swiss cheese

    Chicken in bottom of pan
    Swiss cheese on top of that (Usually get the slices or shredded)
    Soup spread over cheese

    Bake 350 degrees for 45 minutes

    Before you are ready to take it out of oven, melt 1/4 cup of butter in a saucepan on stovetop. Once melted stir in stuffing seasoning. Remove from heat and add the stuffing. Stir it until the stuffing is covered with the butter/seasoning mixture. You may need more than 1/4 cup of butter as I do it by sight and can't remember exact measurement.

    Remove the chicken/soup/cheese combination (lol) from the oven and cover it with the stuffing mixture. Bake for another 10-15 minutes.



    Frozen pizza is also quick.

    I'm a big fan of Hot Pockets... but only the ones with those nifty heaty-uppy pouch things that make them all crispy and such.

    There is no other way to eat a Hot Pocket.

    Heat a frozen breaded chicken breast in the microwave. Open bag of prepared salad mix. Cut chicken into chunks and mix with the salad in a bowl. Add dressing. Later, be sure to wipe spilled blobs of salad dressing off ms before sending!

    Get a wife who cooks.
    Repeat if wife dies.

    I didn't want to work. It was as simple as that. I distrusted work, disliked it. I thought it was a very bad thing that the human race had unfortunately invented for itself.

    Shoot, we're doing it all backward, as usual. I'm both the cook and the writer! All he does is pay for most of the stuff we need to live...

    Even lazier . . .



    Repeatedly make bets with partner (those that you know you will win). He/she had to cook upon loosing. Works like a charm, every time.

    Quick and extremely sweet dessert.

    I found this recipe in the coupon section of my newspaper. Made it last night and pretty much had to fight my two boys off with a stick to keep them from getting more. Sugar rush.

    Pineapple Angel Lush

    1 pkg (4-serving size) Jello Vanilla flavor instant pudding and pie filling
    1 can (20 oz.) Dole Crushed Pineapple in juice, undrained
    1 cup thawed Cool Whip whipped topping
    1 pkg (10 oz.) prepared round angel food cake
    10 small strawberries

    MIX dry pudding mix and pineapple with juice in medium bowl. Gently stir in whipped topping.

    CUT cake horizontally into 3 layers.

    PLACE bottom cake layer, cut side up, on serving plate. Spread 1-1/3 cups of the pudding mixture onto cake layer; cover with middle cake layer. Spread 1 cup of the pudding mixture onto middle cake layer; top with remaining cake layer. Spread with remaining pudding mixture. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. Store in refrigerator.
    Makes 10 servings

    Own cats. Accept their gifts.

    We have six cats and we eat like kings, I tell you. Robin, mole, bat, rat, earthworm... no shortage of side dishes here.

    That's just wrong in so many ways.

    Here's one that is quick to get together and toss in the oven:

    You can switch out the soup flavour to other types for a change of pace.

    And having a hubby who cooks is also a plus
