    Default minimal prep and cooking time. Need inspiration!

    Oh and beef & black bean stir fry. I buy the minute steak and slice it long ways, coat in flour and brown then throw on a packet of the stir fry packet from the salad section at woolies, and then some beef & black bean sauce. With or without rice.

    Similarly you can do a noodle stir fry with veggies and noodles, whatever meat you fancy and whatever sauce you have on hand, I usually just chuck in some soy, ginger paste and oyster sauce.

    Sakanaki and Greek salad: slice some haloumi cheese and fry in some vegetable oil, chop up red onions, tomato, cucumber, and add kalamata olives, some feta, oregano and a tin of lentils and dress with some balasmic and olive oil.

    Salmon and asparagus pasta: boil some pasta, chop up asparagus and steam for a few minutes. Drain pasta, add asparagus, a tin of red salmon, knob of butter and a squeeze of lemon juice to taste.

    Scrambled eggs on toast. (With baked beans if we have them) breakfast for dinner is good, heck cereal is not unheard of in my house for dinner.

    omelettes with cheese, tuna & tinned corn.

    We have a George Forman grill so lamb chops, chicken breast/thigh, steak & some lettuce, tomato, cucumber, cheese/feta cubes, olives. If I have a free hand I'll make the dressing myself otherwise a store bought salad dressing.

    Ummmmmmm and I tend to have a freezer full of oven bake easy meals from aldi "just in case" everything goes down the crapper that day with my 8 month old & 4 year old and we just need full bellies and don't care about nutritional content.

    i love eggs and toast for dinner with some baked beans and ham if any available! We don't have aldi here in wa. I lived in NSW 12 years ago and I think is was starting around then? It's a cheap supermarket?
