    My no prep fast food alternative is pasta sauce in a jar (always have one on stand by) and pasta, with cheese and parsley from the garden sprinkled on top. Faster than getting take away.

    I also like nacho - nacho sauce El Dorados, plain corn chips, cheese and chives from garden. Again faster than take away.

    And I also keep a microwave packet of brown rice, lentil dhal and poppadoms in the cupboard. Sounds dodgy, tastes great and takes 5mins all up from start to finish.

    Those are what I use to avoid take away on the days I truly can't even slice n dice.

    I have other easy recipes for the days I'm tired but not completely out for the count, but even they require too much effort for the worst days.

    oven pasta - boil water for pasta - chop 2 punnetts cherry tomatoes ( we always have tomatoes ) , add garlic and chill and throw in baking dish with olive oil and bake for as long as it takes for pasta to boil, when pasta is ready, toss through sauce and chop fresh basil from my garden add fresh parmesan - takes about 20 mins and uses 2 pans ( you could throw chopped bacon in the pan with the tomatoes if you eat bacon!)
    or - eggs - we always have eggs, thats my couldn't be bothered meal for DS, make a 2 egg pancake with whatever is in the fridge , olives, tomato, veggies , cheese herbs etc..

    Maybe it's the mince that kills them then.

    ooh subscribing for inspiration! some great ideas here thanks everyone

    my standbys:
    I try to cook spag bol or chili in bulk and freeze, so my main standby is spag bol, all i have to do is cook the pasta/rice.
    fish fingers & take-away chips
    tuna, rice & mayonnaise (delish and the kids lap it up)

    ummm thats it... like i said, subscribing for inspiration

    I always do a Donna Hay number when I cant be bothered slicing dicing and frying. I think its called chicken with honey and haloumi.
    Basically it is chicken breast and chunks of haloumi topped with lemon juice, lemon zest, thyme, honey and just baked in oven for half hour. Its so easy fast and only gives me one dish to wash oh and its served with rocket and fresh figs.

    quick dinners here are scrambled eggs or omlettes.

    the kids get cheesy scrambled eggs ( just grated cheese added)

    we add, onion, bacon, cheese, choped tomato

    served with toast to bulk it up.

    Omlettes. You can bulk them out with sliced of potato zapped in the microwave til soft. Pancakes are always a winner too.

    ummmmm... anyone with any ideas for dairy/wheat/egg free meals?
    yeah Berrie we do lots of pancakes, oatcakes, buckwheat pancakes... they are losing their shine in this house...

    I have yet to find a 'bake' that tastes OK without cheese... ???
