Old faithfuls

Brie's top 10 equipment query got me thinking about "old faithful" meals. We probably all have them. Meals you KNOW your kids and/or spouse will eat without complaining, meals you whip up whenever you're pressed for time or out of energy, etc.

What are your faithful standby meals or dishes?

I guess it's my turn. At home, it's just my husband and me, so this applies to dinner in our case. We do our own thing for breakfasts and lunches.

Chicken or turkey (boneless/skinless) marinated in either "Greekish" or "Asian-ish" mixtures. Greekish = lemon, olive oil, pepper, basil and/or oregano, GARLIC. Asian-ish= soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, maybe 5 spice powder, pepper

Often, the above made into kebabs and grilled with bell peppers onions and mushrooms.

Turkey bratwurst or Italian sausage

Steak- liberally seasoned with garlic, herbes de provence and pepper- sometimes the "Asian-ish" marinade if I have time

I'm the only fish-eater in our house, so that's not a meal I can count.

All with some veggie (preferrably fresh). My husband will eat a limited menu of veg, so it's either asparagus, zucchini, broccoli, winter squash, spinach or green beans. I just sneaked kohlrabi on the table this week, and he ate it, so there's one more! :D

And serve it with a bowl of stone soup! :lol:
