Default Favorite Easy Foods

Who doesn't like talking about food?

What are some of your favorite easy snacks/meals/desserts to make?

One of my favorites is home fries. Just chop up potatoes and throw 'em in the pan with some oil, easy fried yumminess.

Spaghetti! Takes less than 30 minutes and makes enough meals for two days...if I don't indulge too fast.

I've had a slight addiction to peanut butter sandwiches lately, too. And the peanut butter has to be thick. Almost sticking to the roof of your mouth thick. That takes 2 minutes.

I agree about fries, although I avoid that because they're unhealthy. Too bad, because they are certainly yummy!

this is what i made for dinner (yeah, nothing else). the empty bowl sits beside me.

cilantro lime rice



1 c. white rice
2 c. water
splash of lime juice
2 tbsp. bullion (cubes, powder- whatever)
dash of pepper
3 tbsp. crushed garlic (i use the jarred stuff, easier)
splash of olive oil
1/3 c. chopped fresh cilantro

put everything but the cilantro in a pot. bring to boil. stir, cover, switch heat to low. let simmer covered, without stirring, for 15 minutes. then dump in fresh cilantro. eat.

instead of water & bullion you can, of course, use canned broth- which is better. but tonight i had bullion so it's what i used.

time to do the dishes. literally. bye.

I was going to say something about peanut butter. Peanut butter on a sliced peach is yummy especially flavored peanut butter.


^ Yummy I love white rice and adding flavor to it.

^ I love cilantro rice, but I've never made any myself.

This is a subject near and dear to me, as a single man.
potato/egg/sausage scramble... also good for breakfast tacos with salsa
pastas in general
french onion burgers. (just add french onion powder to the meat before you cook it)
cottage cheese and fruit (or yogurt)
tuna salad

Just cook your sausage, when it's done remove it from skillet and drain all but a little grease out.
Cut up the potatoes (add onions if you want) cook those up in the little bit of grease you left in the skillet.
Poor the eggs in, I add some salt and paprika, scramble the eggs.
Mix the sausage back in.
Eat that stuff!

Pasta with baked beans and a ton a cheese. I could eat my own body weight in that...

Like other people have said, most breakfast foods are good. Can't beat an Ulster Fry. (Ulster is another name for Northern Ireland, although it includes a bit of Ireland that isn't in the UK...it's confusing and blah blah blah)



Eat that for your breakfast and you won't need to eat the rest of the day!

Soda Bread, Potato Bread, Beans, Diced Potato, Hash browns, Bacon, Egg, Sausage (Mushroom and tomato too if you want, but I don't like them)

Uhm, any kind of pasta works. We usually make it with either the shells or the bows. (I dunno the proper names haha) I don't know where the idea came from, I don't know anyone else who has ever made it apart from my mum and sister. To me it seems odd no one else eats it and thinks it's weird...my mum has always made it. (Although her mum didn't...I will have to ask where she got the idea) Just cook the pasta, drain it, add the beans to the pot and stir it, then grate a lot of cheese into the pot and stir again. Couldn't be simpler

You can get all that for about $3-4 as well. If you go to a garage that does hot food, they do a mini version with 5 pieces for only $1.50. Best thing you can buy for under $2.

A meal like that in Australia would cost over $10, for sure. That's good you get it so cheaply!
