This last week we've had
-butterflied lamb on the BBQ with 3 different salads (coleslaw, potato and a green salad)
- leftover lamb as wraps on Pita bread with hummous, tabouli and salad
- pasta with pesto, meatballs and oven roasted cherry tomatoes
- chicken Mexican wraps
-sausages with onion gravy, roast potatoes, corn, carrot and broccoli
-chicken, SDT, basil and mushroom risotto
And tonight I'm going low key and we're having BLTs.
If I really can't be bothered I'll do burgers/ BLT's or steak sandwiches
If I have some time I'll do a roast/ rice paper rolls or chicken strips crumbed in panko with honey mustard sauce.

My situation is kind of a PITA... we've got DP working FIFO, so I feed him only 4 nights out of 14, and he's a fussy eater anyway. DD is 6, and will eat whatever I tell her to (sometimes whinging, but meh... lol), and I've had surgery on my stomach that makes my serving size incredibly small (I can eat about 1 sushi roll in 1/2-1 hour, if that helps).
So, basically, dinner is pretty dodgy, because I'm MOSTLY only cooking for DD most nights. She gets leftovers a lot. lol.
Our "regulars" are probaby...
Sausages or Rissoles and Salad
Spaghetti Bolognaise or Lasagne
Some sort of chicken with salad
Tacos or Enchiladas (these have to be teh packet versions... DP has scoffed at all my homemade versions, which are actually much nicer, but he's used to processed rubbish)
Some sort of one-pot dinner
I can eat all these things too, so it's okay for me (I can't really manage pasta much anymore though, because it takes up far too much room)... even if I only eat the protein part of the dish.
IDEALLY I'd be making much nicer meals, but it hardly seems worth it when I only make up about 1 full serving at night except when DP is home. lol.
My CBFed meals are all of the above - they don't require much effort. lol. Except the lasagne cos that takes a while to put together and cook, making everything (except the pasta) myself.
My REALLY REALLY CBFed meals - I normally have mini frozen pizzas and nuggets in the freezer for those occasions. lol. I don't eat them, but DD and DP will. But we have lots of leftovers as I'm still used to cooking a proper 4-serve dinner, so I mostly jsut defrost and plate something up. lol.

•leek & mushroom risotto
•something in the slow cooker
•chicken breast and steam fresh veg
•quiche or zucchini slice (depending on time)
•fish en papillote
Can't be bothered
•Chicken breast & steamed veg & the woolies frozen mash which is my dirty little secret. It's SO tasty but really not very good for you.
•Cheats risotto where you chuck it together and put it in the oven.
Going all out (for me, this refers to calories, not effort, I LOVE cooking, and I only have two settings, CAN be bothered and CAN'T be bothered)
•Sticky pork chops & mashed potatoes
•Home made nuggets

*Schnitzels/Parma with either potato sides* or a pasta side, plus veggies or salad depending on the weather )or my cravings at the moment )
*Honey Mustard chicken (the masterfoods packet) with rice
* Home made chicken strips (which is just tenderloins tossed in the chicken salt you get from the chicken shops) with veggies/salads and potato sides*
*Corned Beef with potato sides and veggies
*Pasta - either tuna pasta, cabonara or bolognase depending on what everyone feels like!
*Roast of some sort
If I have the patience (I HATE cooking and never *want* to!) Lasagne or Canneloni- Spinach & Ricotta for me and DS and Meat for DH and DD
If I cant be bothered... usually one of the pasta dishes or burritos!
ETA: *Potato sides are mash, scalloped potatos and very occasionally chips (DS and I dont like them)
