Pasta of course.  I always have cheese and vegetables and some kind of protein in the fridge.  Easy and fast.

Stir fry, noodles optional. lol

"Nooo, no trouble at all, you must be starving."
dumps chicken pieces into hot wok with oil, to brown....
"So, how are the kids...."
dumps thawed veggies in, adds asian spices.......
"Sure, we're all fine, Billy-Bob started practice today."
turns down heat, partially covers wok....
"We'll just let that fry up about 8 minutes, then we can eat!"

See? Easy PEASY, or I aint Meezy!

I almost always turn to the gas grill for quick, last minute cooking, no matter what time of year or what the weather.  Roll it under the Gazebo or just inside the garage door if it is raining or snowing and I'm good to go.  Depending on whose coming over you can throw salmon on grill, pork chops on the grill, steaks or burgers on the grill or even veggie kababs on the grill.  Pair it with a salad, baked potato or oven roasted, rosemary scented, new potatoes and you can't go wrong.
