    Fry up some sausages to have with crusty long rolls and sauce.
    Cheaper than buying all the stuff for making hotdogs.

    Quiche is quick - whip up eggs with milk, salt, pepper. Add whatever veges are in the fridge, pour into a baking dish, top with grated cheese if you have any and bake until the top is nice and golden. Serve with salad.

    Buy a frozen bag of mixed stir fry veges, and some frozen chicken tenders.
    Bake the tenders while frying the stiryfry (add some sauce like hoisin) serve the stirfry with chicken tenders on top.

    My son does home ec and I've been getting him to cook some of the things he has learned at school. He also likes to help me a fair bit too....I get him to do the annoying things like grating cheese and chopping bacon that way I can just chuck it all in with little effort from me

    The home ec is a brilliant idea, wish I'd done it at school.

    Now my poor oppressed child is slaving in the kitchen I think I might hop in the pool.

    Thanks so much for the ideas, I hope they keep coming!

    Vegie lassage? It takes maybe 10 mins to make, about 20-30 mins to cook and you can also make it in the morning or during the day and stick in the oven at night? Im not really sure how low cost it is, but its very filling and makes a lot of serves. I make it in a big baking tray.

    Ingredients:
    2 big zuchinni's
    1 eggplant
    1 large tub ricotta
    1 packet of tasty cheese
    1 large or 2 small boxes of frozen spinach
    1 jar tomato based pasta sauce
    1 pack of large pasta sheets.

    1. cut eggplant into thin rounds, and zucchini into long strips. Put on a baking tray with a bit of salt (and a bit of olive oil if you like) for about 10 mins in the oven to soften them up while you are making the rest.
    2. mix the thawed out frozen spinach with the ricotta and add salt and pepper to taste
    3. take veggies out of oven
    4. layer the lasagne in the baking dish. I have a layer of eggplant completely covering the bottom, layer of spinach and ricotta, layer of pasta sheets, pasta sauce, cheese. Then layer of zucchini, ricotta and spinach, pasta sheet, pasta sauce, cheese.

    Chuck in the oven till golden brown on the top. I find it very quick and easy and sometimes you have a lot of the ingredients already in your fridge. Its yummy and filling and a great way to get lots of veggies.

    I make a yummy pumpkin chickpea salad that I often have as a meal.

    Roast/steam/bake some diced pumpkin (about 600gms)
    Allow to cool
    Put in a bowl add 1 can drained chickpeas
    Add 100gms chopped Sun dried tomatoes
    Add 150-200 gms rocket leaves

    Make a dressing with olive oil and raspberry wine vinegar.
    Voila

    I often bake the pumpkin in the morning and put it together in the arvo.
    I'll make some chicken breast for DP too sometimes or a chop/steak.

    Another one is roast veggie salad.

    Roast
    Capsicum
    Eggplant
    Zucchini
    Red onion
    Sweet potato

    Drizzled with olive oil and herbs of your choosing

    When all tender crumble some feta over the top and all done.

    She is in Year 8 this year and they do it for a short time in year 7 & 8. She told me she can't wait until they get to bring home their cookbook with all the things they have or will make this year in it.

    We think she has it for an elective for Year 9 & 10 but they may change it on her. It was her 2nd choice. She was wanting PASS (Physical Activity Sports Studies) as her 1st choice and we are waiting to see if they could do something about it as she didn't get it. (They do two 2 year electives though so she was hoping to do food Tech as well)

    Food tech is a fun one to get though and they get them to cater for a couple of school functions. The food the older girls made for a function we went to one night was so yummy!

    I'm starting to get my brain thinking of all these again as, if all keeps going well, in another 6 months I'll be doing lots of one-handed, throw it in the oven type cooking.

    I'm going to have a freezer full of pre-marinated meat sealed into portion sized bags ready to take out in the morning and BBQ/fry that night with bread and salad.

    When I roast I normally go all out with seasoning, peeling potatoes, pumpkin etc. But when pushed/feeling lazy it's literally meat out of the packet, into the oven along with a tray of frozen 'ready roast' type veg and some frozen peas and corn in the microwave. Ditto sausages in the oven as PP mentioned, no standing by the stove and turning.

    Tuna Casserole with cheats sauce (milk + cornflour on stove til thick then add cheese). I do this as a one-pot meal. Boil the pasta, drain then use the same saucepan to make the sauce, add pasta back + corn, peas and tuna (in brine so no need to add salt. Ooh and a tin of pineapple (DH got me onto this - yum!!)

    Baked spuds with whatever topping u feel like are always a hit.

    We like ham or chicken, cheese, sour cream, pineapple and coleslaw

    Can even top with bolognese or tuna mornay

    Spaghetti with garlic, chilli and anchovy
    While spaghetti is cooking heat some olive oil in a pan and cook garlic, chilli and anchovies. Stir through pasta, grate over Parmesan cheese. I add mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, pine nuts and packet spinach sometimes too if I CBF.


    Or, packet of continental curry chicken pasta, add grated carrot, frozen spinach, peas and corn and top with sliced boiled eggs.

    Wraps - in a big bowl mix together chopped tomatoes, mushrooms, packet spinach, grated cheese, lots of tomato paste, whatever you have. Get mountain bread, fill with mix and roll up like a burrito, then stick in sandwich press. Very yummy.
