Do you have chicken in your freezer? Thaw it out, put in a baking dish with some italian dressing.Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes if boneless chicken, 90 minutes if whole chicken with bones or until fully cooked, depending on your oven. Throw some canned green beans in a pan and heat. Peel some potatoes, or just cube and cook them in the oven with some oil, basil and spices you like. Easy dinner prep, and the oven does most of the work.
Pasta - everyone has pasta in their pantry unless they're on some sort of diet. Pasta is easy to cook. The best way I've found is to put a pot of water on to boil. ( don't bother measuring water as the recipes say, because you pour it out. Just fill the pot 1/2 to 3/4 full ) Put pot of water on a burner and turn the burner to HIGH. Let it boil first, then add your pasta, some olive oil and salt if you like. Make sure all pasta is covered in water, and turn off the burner. The hot water will cook the noodles perfectly without sticking or over cooking. Drain the water, and add whatever sauce or toppings you like.
Bacon and eggs - breakfast is so important and you should be able to learn how to scramble an egg. Over easy is a little trickier. First heat your skillet. You never want to break an egg into a cold skillet. I add butter to the skillet, or some folks use a pan spray to keep it from sticking. Let the butter melt and heat before you add your eggs. For scrambled, use a bowl to crack the eggs into and add a light splash of milk. Whip the egg/milk together until a bit creamy and pour into the heated skillet. Use a spatula to "scramble" the egg mixture as it's cooking. It cooks quickly, so scramble and continue to move the eggs around until done. Add toast. Bacon is always a great option, but at my age I still can't cook bacon right, and I'm between 50 and dead. Good luck with that.
If you enjoy tuna, I throw together pasta, tuna and ranch dressing for a quick lunch or dinner option. Fast and easy. ( see pasta above, same concept. Boil water, cook pasta, drain). Add can of tuna, add a few squirts of ranch dressing to mix, and there ya go. Quick and easy from things in most people's pantry. Add tomatoes, or broccoli or other veggies as you like.
Pickle wraps - no cooking involved and these are a carb-lite snack. Take Buddig ham slices, or whatever thin sliced meat you like, put some cream cheese on the slice of meat, and wrap a sliced pickle up in it. Pickle wraps are delicious and a quick protein pick me up.
There's always yogurt. ...
