Domestic Me

Meal time

My Dad was never a big cook growing up. We had many meals of heated up Dinty Moore beef stew (I still love that stuff…yum…), frozen fish sticks (wait, I still love those too…), and frozen egg rolls (I never really liked those at all). He looked at time spent fixing dinner, was wasting time on many levels. Since I really don’t like to cook? I have kinda adopted the same line of thinking. Cooking is simply another chore to me. Like cleaning the toilets. It’s something that I need to do for the good of the family, but I’m not going to put any more time into it than is truly necessary.

When my mother-in-law makes baked beans, they are always baked beans. She puts the beans in a dish with the other ingredients and bakes them. I never knew that’s why they were called “baked beans” until I saw her do that the first time. Mine would be more aptly called Baked and then Canned and then Sold At Target and then Bought by me and then Opened and then Heated On The Stove Beans.

We went to my friend’s house for dinner one night, a few years ago. LilZ asked what we were going to have and I said, “Lasagna.” When we got there, my friend was lining the dish with the noodles and scooping ingredients into the dish. LilZ whispered to me, “I thought we were having lasagna?” He had never seen it made from scratch since ours always comes out of the box from the freezer.

I guess there are a few factors making me a lazy-ass in the kitchen.

1) I don’t like to cook. I don’t find a lot of thrill in trying new recipes or new techniques. So, time spent cooking, something I don’t like to do means time spent not doing something I like to do. Like playing with my kids, talking to my husband, or soaking in the tub. (HA! You all know I’m really just watching crap on TV, right?)

2) I have no preference over the taste of foods from my kitchen. Now, when it comes to foods other people cook? Or restaurants? I have preferences. But, when it comes to food in my home made by my hands? It is all good to me. There are no meals I like more or less than others – in terms of taste. I will just eat whatever is there. So, there are not taste-issues encouraging me to spend more time preparing different types of foods. In reality? I enjoy a dinner the most that took me the least amount of time to cook it.

3) My husband will eat anything. Now, he definitely has preferences as to what he likes better than other things. But, when it boils down to it? He has rarely EVER complained about meals in our home. Usually, his only complaint is, “That…again?” Because I honestly cook the same meals almost every week. But, he’ll eat anything. If he were a picky eater, or demanded higher quality foods, that would be different. Well, first, he would have never married me, but also? I might be more motivated to cook a variety of meals.

Or, I’d be more motivated to make him cook a wide variety of meals.

Either way, he’s not picky. He doesn’t mind the Spaghetti, Chili, Stuffed Potatoes, Frozen Lasagna, Quesadillas, Pasta Salad dinner rotation every week. Sometimes, I’ll throw in a Stoffer’s frozen dinner (Grandma’s Chicken and Rice Bake) to spice things up. Or maybe, veggie burgers! Exciting! Hell, after this entry I may be adding Dinty Moore an fish sticks to the menu in honor of my Dad. MrZ and LilZ won’t know what hit them. Two new meals in ONE WEEK.

Essentially? I’m probably the worst wife/mother in the world, if you were grading me on my culinary performance alone. But, I’m fine with that. Actually, I’m here to see if any of you do the same thing? And if so, do you have and 5 minute prep meals you want to share with me? I really like recipes that include the can-opener and the microwave. You should also know that I only have, like two spices in my spice rack. I am also very cheap. And I don’t like buying fresh things because inevitably they go bad before I use them.

And don’t pull the, “Prepare meals on the weekends! And then freeze them!” technique. That contradicts the I Hate To Cook mandate. It also goes against the I Like To Sit On My Ass On The Weekends clause I’ve instilled in my family dynamic.

  1. There are a bunch of recipes on my blog, mostly vegetarian, if you’re interested. Most are pretty easy, some need a little more time. Just search “Tuesday Recipe Club” or “recipe” and you’ll find them. I grew up with Dinty Moore, fish sticks and tamales from a can — still love them all.

  2. You already know that my husband does most of the cooking (and certainly all of the fancy cooking) around the weaker vessel homestead, because he loves it and is really good at it. But we actually only have formally structured meals two or three times a week for dinner. Most of our meals are variations of the same basic ingredients that we cook in bulk on Sundays, like chicken breasts, black or pinto beans, and brown rice. Most nights, we just use these ingredients for quasi-Mexican meals like tacos or burritos, or I cook a pack of instant cornbread and serve beans on top of it. Nutritious AND delicious! And cheap. I agree with you, cooking a full dinner from scratch every night does seem like a waste of time.

  3. I have two words for you: Crock Pot. It takes less than 10 minutes to throw ingrediants into a crock pot and then you forget about it all day. Come home from work, play, whatever, and you’ve got a hot and ready meal. Good stuff.

  4. This is the best man side dish ever. WE call it funeral corn because we have no idea what’s it’s name reall is and it’s quick and easy to take to funerals.

    Funeral Corn
    2 cans whole kernel corn, drained well
    8 oz brick of cream cheese
    1 stick of butter
    pickled jalepenos, to taste
    Salt and pepper

    Put all the stuff in a baking dish and microwae it until it’s all melted. Mix it up and serve. 5 minutes tops.

    You can also cook this in the oven. If you need to double or triple it, don’t double and triple the cream cheese and butter. for every extra two cans of corn only use 1/2 of those ingredients over again.

    This goes with Hamburgers, Ham on Easter, Chicken on tuesday night, pork loin – just about everything. Put a bottle of barbacue sauce over a package of chicken in the crock pot and make this when you get home, and you are done!

  5. Oh, and since you leave so early in the morning? You can throw the ingredients into the crock pot the night before and just take it out of the fridge in the morning and plug it in. If you want some specific recipes, email me.

  6. I second the crock pot! Its so fabulous! my favorite crock pot meal is toss in some chicken, whatever part s you like to eat. Add 1 can of cream of chicken soup, one can of cream of mushroom soup, 2 cans of water, let it sit and cook all day. Serve with potatoes or whatever you like!

  7. My favorite quickie meal here lately is chicken fajitas. I buy the already seasoned and cooked Tyson fajita chicken from the freezer section, the already sliced and frozen onions and peppers, throw them in a skillet to heat them up, add extra fajita seasoning if I have it handy. Toss it in a tortilla, add some sour cream, cheese or whatever other toppings you like, and you have dinner.

    I also use the crock pot quite a bit for easy meals. I bought a crock pot recipe book a while back and whenever I’m feeling like something different I’ll dig through there and try a new one out. The easiest one in there calls for frozen chicken breasts, a package of italian dressing mix, and a cup of water. You put the chicken in, dump the italian dressing mix over the chicken and add a cup of water. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Then I just add a box mix of mashed potatoes and can of green beans on the side. Hubby loves it and it is super easy for me.

  8. I totally second the crock pot thing. And the Publix I shop at (I am sure Target does a similar thing) actually sells the meat, potatoes, carrots, and onions all seasoned and ready to be cooked. It’s awesome. I actually do enjoy cooking, but with a toddler and a very non picky husband I seldom do. I always go the cheap easy route as well.

    Also, go for the precooked rotisserie chickens. They are usually cheap and very tasty. Plus, they don’t even involve a can opener or microwave.

  9. One quick dinner my family really likes is Oven Fried Chimichangas.
    1 can of white meat chicken (you can increase this to up to 3 cans depending on how much chicken you like)
    1 can chopped green chilies, drained
    1 cup shredded cheese (I usually use Monterey Jack or Mexican)
    8 flour tortillas
    Mix all the canned stuff and the cheese together in a bowl, then brush both sides of the tortilla with vegetable oil then put a small amount of the canned/cheese mixture in the middle. Fold the bottom of the tortilla in, then the sides and continue to roll till you have a rectangular package. Put these on a baking sheet in the oven at 425 degrees for about 10 minutes. You can serve these alone or with refried beans, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, etc. The best part is my son, who is the same age as yours, can help me with the mixing/rolling process so we can hang out together AND have something to eat. Also, while the chimichangas come out nice and crispy, they are actually somewhat healthy.

  10. I have a crock pot I never use, if you want it. LOL! We eat a lot of pasta and jar sauce with the bag o salad that comes ready to eat. Kraft Mac n Cheese with raw carrots and ranch dressing to dip. Hot Dogs with tater tots and corn on the cob. Yes, we eat like the kids menu at Applebees. LOL! Hamburger Helper is big around here too. I buy Lawry’s 30 minute marinades for chicken (Hawaiian, Honey Mustard and Terriaki), but screw putting it in the fridge for 30 minutes. I just dump it on and bake…serve that with Uncle Ben’s ready rice (90 seconds in the micro) and some frozen veggies. Oh! Here’s a good one. Pasta Accents broccoli alfredo…two bags of that (in the freezer section) and add some Italian seasoned chicken – the Perdue Short Cuts kind that is already cooked. Just nuke the pasta according to bag directions and mix in the chicken. Voila. It’s a yummy casserole. Fajita night is fun. Warm some flour tortillas in the micro, buy a bag of shredded cheddar or pepper jack or whatever, the frozen onions and peppers someone else mentioned and some cooked chicken, some salsa, and a bag of ready to eat lettuce. My son loves dumping various things on a tortilla and making a mess. I bake a lot of fresh fish too, just because it cooks so fast and all you need is a bit of salt and pepper on top. Nuthin fancy…if you like fish like salmon. I don’t do fishy fish like trout. I’m like you. I like to keep it simple and fast.

  11. My mom had a great “enchilada casserole” that tastes amazing and is one of those “open a can” meals.

    1 sm can tomato paste
    1/2 cup water
    1 can enchilada sauce
    1 can chili with beans (I use hormel vegetarian)
    grated cheese (the recipe calls for like 1 cup, but we love cheese so I usually use a full bag of the pre grated mexican blend)
    1 bag fritos (the normal/small size, I think its like 10 oz or something riduclous like that)

    Mix half of the cheese and all of the other ingredients in a big bowl, pour into a greased casserole dish and cook for 25 minutes at 350. Spread the top with sour cream and top with the rest of the cheese, then return to oven until the cheese melts.

    This takes like 5 minutes to throw together, then you can play with the kids whiles its in the oven! You can make it as mild or spicy as you want with the chili and enchilada sauce. We usually serve it with a green chile or spanish rice (those microwaveable ones will work fine!). If you ever feel really ambitious, I have a fairly easy recipe for green chile rice… but it does require some chopping of onion, etc. >grins<

  12. I am also a BIG crockpot user at least two times a week. Just yesterday took out the crockpot put in straight from the freezer a package of stew meat, two packages of dry italian dressing mix, and 2 cans of diced tomatoes (juice and all). Put it on low cooked all day then before dinner I boiled water and made egg noodles, and served the meat mixture over noodles. Super easy and VERY good.

  13. I LOVE cooking enchiladas. Sounds hard but I am just like you I HATE to cook. My mom teases me and says that I can’t even boil water. Its not that I can’t its that I won’t! (haha)
    If I do decide to cook, my 6 year always says shes gonna cry because its such a good meal. drama queen! anyways here it is

    things you need
    pck of totillas
    1 can of refried beans
    2 pck of shredded cheese
    2 cans of el paso enchilada sauce
    1 pound of ground beef
    green onions-optional

    cook meat
    spread a spoonful of beans onto each totilla
    and then sprinkle cheese onto each tortilla. Add some meat and fold into a burito and put into a 10 by 13 pan. reapeat this until beans, 1st pck of cheese, tortillas and meat are all gone. With all the totillas in the pan poor the 2 cans of enchilad sauce all over evenly. Then sprinkle the 2nd bag of cheese on top to desired amount. Chop green onions and sprinkle on top. Place in oven at 450 and melt cheese. Can add sour cream if you like and Then your done.

    Its really good, I also make them with the already cooked chicken. Thats good too!

  14. I love soup. One of my favorites is super easy and tasty.

    1 can white meat chicken
    1 can refried beans
    1 can whole black beans
    1 can corn
    2 cans chicken broth
    1 can Rotel

    Heat it up until the broth is smooth (refrieds will make the broth thick) and serve it with a dollop of sour cream.

  15. Since the crock pot is so popular around here (as it should be), here’s my favorie easy crock pot recipe:
    Cans to open and dump into the crock pot: Black Beans, Kidney Beans, Chili Beans, whatever beans you like/happen to have on hand, Salsa
    Add some cooked ground beef and chopped tomatos and peppers if you want.
    It can cook in the crock pot all day on low or for a couple of hours on high if you don’t get around to making it until after work.
    This is what passes for Chili in our house. And it is pretty darn good.

  16. OK, I never comment anywhere, but this “recipe” not only involves little preparation, but no dishes.
    It’s called a Walking Taco. Open a small bag of Doritos or Fritos, dump all your taco toppings in (seasoned meat, lettuce, cheese, sour cream…etc.), mix up and eat from the bag! How fun is that?…and so good!

  17. 2 Words for ya: HAMBURGER…HELPER! Hubby works 2nd shift so I make a lot of stuff that he can warm up easily when he gets home or the next day for lunch. We get the Cheeseburger Macaroni kind. We also buy those Sister Shubert rolls that are in the freezer section; they come in their own tin so you just unwrapped them and pop them in the oven.

  18. I love to cook but don’t have the time. Or, more realistic – by the time I’d get a decent meal done everyone would be full from the snacking and ready for bed. I cook on the weekends during the winter though – soups – roasts – stuff like that.
    During the week I’ve been lured by a place called “Let’s Dish” where the old man & I go for 2 hours once a month and put together frozen dinners for the rest of the month. We call it “Date Night” Very Romantic…
    Of course now I’m in the mood for some canned stew….

  19. I just can’t help I guess… because I love to cook… but I did recently find a terribly easy recipe that involves meat. But you could always use that boca and fake meat…

    Chili Dog Casserole

    You just take a hot dog weiner (veggie or meat) and roll it in a tortilla. Line them up in a casserole dish as though they were enchiladas. Cover them with chili and shredded cheddar and bake on 350 for like 20 or 25 mins. Voila! They taste like the coneys from Sonic. I also put yellow mustard and onions on mine before I eat them.

    I know you already make chili so you could just use that chili. And since it’s so cheap and easy you could make one pan vegetarian and one pan regular for Mr.Z

    I love to share recipes and I have a food blog. Hit me up anytime!!!

  20. oh and that funeral corn up above is yummy. We always call it cream cheese corn and I never put jalapenos in mine. I actually don’t even put butter in mine but my grandma does. I just take one block of cream cheese to 3 or 4 cans or corn and melt in the microwave. I take it to all kinds of office parties and family events… it’s yummy!

  21. Pita Pizza (less then $10)

    Pita’s (we use large, 5 per pack. You can do flat bread too)
    Pizza sauce (jar or can – doesn’t matter)
    Cheese (bagged)
    Toppings (we use pepperoni, mushrooms, ham – whatever)

    Put the pita’s on pizza pans… add toppings… bake 10-15 minutes… serve.

    Easy and Yum-o!

  22. I’m in the same boat with you, sista. The exception is that I do like to cook, it’s just that my husband is so easy to feed that I’m just not motivated. Also, it’s just the two of us, so I feel like it’s not worth the effort, most of the time.

    Here’s my tip: Preheat the oven to 350; throw some chicken breasts in a baking dish and cover with a “fancy” marinade (Lowry’s, Emeril’s, or your favorite Italian dressing) and bake for an hour. To make this a complete meal, throw in some frozen veggies (no thawing required). Everything will be juicy and seasoned. Pair it with a loaf of garlic bread and grate some cheese on top, and you have all the food groups covered!

  23. i’m not a mother, or even a wife, yet, but i am totally with you on the not liking to cook thing. i can do enough to get by, if i were living on my own, but i just really do not like to do it. i’m lazy and food takes to long and i just don’t have the creative knack for it. luckily, my boyfriend ADORES cooking, and he’s really good at it, so i rarely have to cook. thank goodness.

    now, baking? i love me some baking. that is totally different.

  24. Zoot..try the crockpot. You just throw some chicken, bullion (sp?), veggies and bam! dinner served when you walk in the door! I also like to bake chicken breasts covered in cream of Mushroom soup. yum and VERY easy! OR…jut go out and eat mexican! =)

  25. My husband can’t cook, but he’s a picky eater. No sandwiches, or soups or scrambled eggs for dinner. It has to be “real food” so as much as I might like to heat up a can of soup and call it dinner, that would just not pass muster. Good thing I like to cook.

  26. Taco Soup:

    1 onion, chopped, cooked in a little oil
    1 big can diced tomatoes
    1 reg. can diced tomatoes
    1 can corn (drained)
    2 cans beans (pinto, kidney, whatever you like) (drained)
    1 packet of taco seasoning
    1 packet of ranch seasoning.

    Just throw these in a pot until warm. I serve it with sour cream and cheese. You could also pour it over chips if you liked. Sometimes I brown up some beef and add that, but it’s good either way!

  27. Here is a crockpot book I’ve enjoyed thus far:

    Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Cookbook

    I love to cook but we don’t always have time to put together a big meal.

    Stir-fry : quick and easy and can use just about anything.

    Grilled meat and fish: marinate and grill, serve with lightly sauted or steamed veggies

    We grill probably 4 nights out of the week.

    I have to admit that Hamburger Helper and any other meals in a box make me shudder, they are so full of sodium and the preservatives have an off taste.

  28. I use my crockpot alot, but only in the winter. I don’t have any good recipes for lighter, summery food.

    My husband is a total pain when it comes to dinner. He must have “a meat, a starch and a vegetable”. (Yes, he says starch!) Last week he was away. Dinner consisted of frozen pizza, hot dogs, Easy Mac, sandwiches and watermellon! It was like a vacation!

  29. My mom used to do that…each weekend, she’d make the same things, Monday would be hash from the roast beef on Sunday, there’d also be american chop suey and I can’t remember what all.

    Me? I’m childless and cooking is fun for me, but then I don’t HAVE to have a meal on the table each night. The nights I’m going out, I tell Dad to go to Wendy’s LOL!

  30. We must have been separated at birth! This post very well could have been written by me.

    10 Minute Taco Salad–it’s basically Frito Chili Pie with Mexican ingredients added.

    Fritos, cheese, chili beans, lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, etc., mixed together.

  31. My newest favorite:
    YUMMY and VERY EASY

    6 large flour tortillas
    shredded cooked chicken (use the rotisserie or canned to make it easy)
    1 can tomatoes with green chilies
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    1 can cheddar cheese soup
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    cooking spray

    Spray casserole dish. Mix soups, chicken, and tomatoes. Put two tortillas in bottom of dish. Spread chicken mixture on top. Two more tortillas. More chicken mixture. Two more tortillas. Top with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

  32. On the back of a stove top chicken box is a great recipe I use. It consists of uncooked chicken breasts, a can of cream of mushroom soap, and the stuffing mix. I bake it 45 minutes, add a veggie and some break sticks, everyone is happy! Simple and it tastes like you cooked all day!

  33. Hey, there’s some good stuff in these comments. I’m totally stealing them.

    Also, here’s my idea: put 3-4 chicken breasts in a crock pot (there it is again) with a full can of Rotel tomatoes- and- green- chilis. COOK. After a few hours, stir it all up. The chicken will cook down so much that it will shread itself. You might have to drain it a little. Then, depending on how much more work you want to do, you can grab up some flour tortillas and throw some of the chicken mixture in there with some cheese and sour cream….mmmm! Use that mixture for tacos, burritos, enchiladas–whatever. It’s so easy!

  34. Our ‘I’m too tired’ dinner is a Rotisserie chicken from the closest grocery store and a bag of salad. Nothing’s easier, and it’s definitely healthy. The next night is a stir fry of the left over chicken and whatever mixed vegetables are laying around or bought in a bag (though I do always use fresh veggies) with a healthy dose of spices or Teriyaki. It takes ten minutes, start to finish, and again it’s perfectly healthy. If we’re sick of stir fry, we cook the chicken and veggies with a simple spaghetti sauce and serve it as a stew-like meal. Of course, this means I NEVER, EVER order chicken when we go out.

  35. I’m the same way, except that I don’t have any kids I’d rather spend my time with when I’m cooking. Just a LOT of homework (I’m in college). 😉

    However, I’ve found ways around it. Green Giant and Stouffer’s both have “skillet” meals that also provide directions for a quick microwave cooking that still has that same quality taste in the end. You can find them in the frozen section of Target – it’s not usually with the lasagna like other Stouffer’s products, so you’ll have to hunt for them.

    Also, I like to use the “Complete Meals” bakes when I need something impressive but quick. Basically, they’re boxes with everything you’ll need for a complete meal in them, and they take me about five minutes to prepare them and shove ’em in the oven.

    Hope that helps!

  36. Chili Spaghetti,

    I used Stagg Chicken or Turkey (because it’s healthier) Two cans for a family your size.

    One box whole-wheat pasta (it cost the same as the other) Cook pasta–follow directions on box

    Heat up the chili toss with cooked pasta and top with grated cheddar cheese (we pass the bowl around and let each person put his or her own “MOUND” on.

    Cheese Biscuits,
    2 cups of bisquick mix
    1/4 cup milk
    1/2 cup cheddar cheese.

    Mix in a bowl, drop the biscuits by tablespoons on cookie sheet and bake. (this recipe is on the bisquick mix btw)
    Melt butter with a little garlic power and brush the tops of the biscuits when done.

    Seriously this is my favorite quick meal, the chili and the biscuits go so well together..

    I don’t cook like this often but I’m grateful for mixes and cans at times.

  37. Easiest and most delicious recipe ever (and possibly not so good for you…just don’t think about that part).

    1 pound ground beef or turkey
    1 can tomato soup
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    small can sliced black olives
    1 can enchilada sauce
    1/2 tablespoon chili powder (optional!)
    Doritoes
    cheddar cheese, grated

    Brown and drain meat. Dump in canned stuff and chili powder. Crush some Doritoes into the bottom of a baking dish. Pour meat / soup mixture on top. Sprinkle with cheese. Top with some more crushed Doritoes. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.

    Sooooo good.

  38. I know this looks long, but I swear it is unspeakably easy. And kids really love it.

    1 package of bowtie pasta (or whatever shape you like)
    1 can of Cream of Chicken soup (condensed kind)
    Couple of boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, chopped into bite size pcs. (Take them out of the freezer the night before and chop them when they’re still slightly frozen)
    1/2 Cup Pesto Sauce (if can’t find jarred pesto, use Knorr packaged and just add the powder to the soup and milk)
    1/2 Cup Milk
    1-2 TBSP butter or marg.

    1) Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain.
    2) Meanwhile: Heat butter in pan. Add chicken. Cook until browned, stirring often.
    3) Add soup, pesto sauce and milk. Bring to boil. Cook over low heat 5 min or until done. Stir in drained pasta and heat through.
    4) Try not to scoff the lot while you wait for your guests to eat their salad. Stuff napkin in mouth to prevent total gluttony. Er, wait, that’s just me.
    5) Don’t forget to put some in the fridge for quick forkfuls before bed.
    6) Buy larger jeans. 🙂

  39. “Granny’s casserole” **Warning, NOT low fat**

  40. Did you know that you DON’T have to boil lasagne noodles before you start layering & cooking it???? I discovered that a few years ago and thought “NOOOOO!” but tried it and actually, I like it better because the noodles absorb all the runny sauce parts that used to pool on the plate. (Holds together much better when serving) Try it! Makes the whole process so much easier!

    Also, if you get to feeling all wacky and want to cook, there are THOUSANDS of basically easy recipes here: http://www.webcipes.com

  41. Looks like you have lots of recipes already but here’s another:

    Take a bag of frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breasts and layer in a greased pan. Mix a can of cream of chicken, mushroom or celery soup with a little white wine. Drink some white wine. Pour soup/wine mixture over the chicken. Place some slices of swiss cheese over chicken with soup mixture. Top with bread crumbs and drizzle with butter. Bake for about 35 minutes at 350 (little longer for thicker chicken breasts). Enjoy!

  42. i know very late but if you ever get to reading this heres a real quick recipe:
    take one of those plastic bags that can go in the oven (by the ziplock section)
    chicken (breast/tenders/thighs etc whatever ur pref)
    2 cans diced tomatoes
    garlic powder
    salt & pepper
    italian seasoning (in spice section)
