We've been doing stir fry lately. Any kind of ground meat or sausage you like (or chunked chicken or beef) a bag of Cole slaw, any veggies you like (we like snow peas, mushrooms & sprouts). Any seasonins you prefer ( I looooove siracha and a dash of soy sauce).  Plain or on top of noodles or rice.  One or two pans and quick.

I do one pan stuff in the oven a lot, maybe more than I should lol. Usually pork tenderloins, chicken breasts or legs, or antelope/deer with veggies. The McCormick marinades are a staple in my kitchen. I just put whatver meat I have in the pyrex or cake type pan, pour half the mariande on that. Then i take veggies that I either cut up or just cheat and pour a bag of frozen mixed normandy style veggies over top. Pour the rest of the marinade on those and bake. If I want an extra side beyond that I just use the 90 second rice/quinoa packages. Sometimes I have frozen mashed cauliflower & will use that. Asparagus and mushrooms are my favorite with the pork. Usually with the chicken I do mushrooms, peppers, and onion. If I don't feel like cutting veggies or I don't have any on hand I just grab my giant bag of frozen veggies & viola.

I cook just for myself so I usually end up eating the same thing all week. I made chicken, pepper, & mushroom kabobs in the oven last night and cabbage steaks. Super easy and I'm fed until the weekend now.  I just got an instant pot so I'll probably try some thigns out with that. I also made a new favorite last week, I did tacos with the nacho flavored shells, but used ground turkey and then put a slice of bacon in the taco. Oh my that was so good. Tacos are super easy too and I always make 2-3lbs of meat in a giant skillet and then freeze a lot of it for the next couple times.

Take a boneless pork roast, put it in the crockpot and add 1-2 bottles (depending on size of roast and how long you'll be gone) of Not Your Father's Root Beer.   

Drain

Break it apart at the end of cooking for amazing pulled pork sandwiches!

Oh my Gosh!!!  Theres a use for the Not Your Fathers Root Beer thats rotting in our fridge.  That stuff was NOT GOOD.  I never thought to cook with it.  I have a pork roast thawing out now so thats exactly what Im doing with it.  Thank you. 

 

Chicken Thighs with Lemon and Rosemary.  Put chicken thighs in the crockpot then mix ranch dressing, worchestershire, fresh rosemary, salt, pepper, garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil.  I mix it to taste then pour it over.  Ive always used fresh rosemary but I suppose you could use dry. I leave it in on low for about 4-6 hours.  Its delish and literally takes about 5 minutes to throw the sauce together. 

 

the one that is my kids favorite though takes a little more effort but **** its good.  Italian Sausage with Fresh Tomatoes and Mascarpone.  Brown a package of italian sausage and break it into crumbles.  when its done take the sausage out and sautee one diced onion until clear then add fresh garlic for a about 2 minutes then add LOTS of halved cherry tomatoes.  I usually use about 3 pints per pound of ground sausage.  I add in the sausage at that point and let it all cook down until the tomatoes are coming apart.  I usually put it on low covered for about 30 minutes.  then I use a potato masher and mash it all together.  just before serving add one container of mascarpone cheese which will make the sauce creamy like nobodys business.  Serve over pasta.  Its so ridiculously good.  My kids ask for it at least once a week.  If tomatoes are on sale I will make the sauce and freeze it without the mascarpone then when I reheat it I finish it with the mascarpone.

Fried Salmon and Mac

Super easy

what you will need 

Fillet of salmon, garlic powder, onion powder, some jalapeño garlic salt, and your your favorite herb spice blend

make your Mac and cheese (I add some smoked Gouda to mine and Navarro) and place it aside. 
In a skillet cook your salmon make sure to season to taste. I use sesame seed oil but any oil will do. The sesame seed oil adds a great nut flavor and you can use it on any meat. Let your salmon cool for a minute and start to shred the salmon in with your Mac and cheese. Blend throughly and add your spices. With your skillet that you used for your salmon add some butter and let it melt. Place place your mac&salmon in the skillet and let it "fry" I just brown it a bit making sure to stir and flip often. Add in some more shredded cheese, let it melt. Serve with some diced chives on top.

Do you have a 2 part baking pan?  Put a bag of spinish greens or sliced zuchinni on the bottom.  Put chicken breasts with skins on top.  Baste with butter.  Slice potatoes and put them beside the veggies on the bottom.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or so, basting regularly.  Also works with turkey thighs, pork ribs or most any meat.

I totally agree!

My instant pot has freed up  my time wonderfully.

I've done ribs, stir fries, soups, stews and cheesecake!

Ingredients Deselect All Kosher salt 12 ounces linguine 1 1/4 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil 5 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1/3 cup dry white wine Juice of 1/2 lemon, plus wedges for serving 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley Directions Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the linguine and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain. Meanwhile, season the shrimp with salt. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until the garlic is just golden, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until pink and just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove the shrimp to a plate. Add the wine and lemon juice to the skillet and simmer until slightly reduced, 2 minutes. Return the shrimp and any juices from the plate to the skillet along with the linguine, butter and 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water. Continue to cook, tossing, until the butter is melted and the shrimp is hot, about 2 minutes, adding more of the reserved cooking water as needed. Season with salt; stir in the parsley. Serve with lemon wedges.

One to Two pot wonders has been my go to, for the last couple of years 1. Because we lived in a 29 ft toy hauler for 18 months and you learn to cook small or BBQ ALOT! ( our oven didnt work and the microwave couldnt go longer then 3 minutes without dying,) one of our favorites is a meat/veggie skillet over rice. I cut up whatever meat I had extra of, through it in a pan with EVOO, season it after a minute or two of cooking, cut up whatever veggies, normally zucchini, yellow squash, onion or aspargus, Or if was really feeling ambitious all of them, through them in the pan and then season again, I would season with whatever I was feeling when looking in the cabinet.

We also ate a lot of salads, in the trailer I couldnt make up a big bowl like I do now, so we did bagged salads and whatever meat. With the house I can make a large bowl up that will last a few days, before I have to make another. 

Another is to buy the pre cut veggies and meats at the store, like here, Albertsons and Safeways, have precut veggies made up, or the meat counter will have stuff like fajitas already prepackaged with the chicken and the veggies, then you can just through them in the pan and be done.
