Here's a few of my easy go to meals. ..
Chicken pieces (can be v thighs, breasts, on the bone just adjust cooking time)... drizzle with oil, rub pesto on them, can scatter cherry tomatoes or onions or garlic and roast in oven. Serve with veg.
Pasta. . cook any pasta you like. .. in s fry pan brown chicken, bacon. ..deglaze pan with s little white wine though not necessary. Add garlic and some broccoli then some cream and cheese. Add pasta. Yum. (I also do wine cheese and cream with smoked salmon)

I made this last night, I put the rice on while DH and DS was in the shower and quickly cut my veg and meat. Then fed DS and once he was down at 6.55 I started dinner. It was served at 7.03 which is important as I wanted to watch the block!!
It's from my menu planner that's why it looks all fancy!!
Ginger beef and vegetable stir-fry
350 g lean beef sirloin steak, sliced on the diagonal
1 teaspoon sesame oil
6 cm piece ginger, thinly sliced
olive oil cooking spray
4 green onions, sliced on the diagonal
200 g snow peas, trimmed, sliced in half on the diagonal
1 red capsicum, sliced
2 tablespoons reduced-salt soy sauce
cooked brown rice, to serve
150 g bean sprouts
2 tsp cornflower
1/2 cup water
1 tsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
Notes / Directions
1. Place steak, sesame oil and ginger into a shallow ceramic dish. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes if time permits.
2. Heat a wok over high heat until hot. Spray with oil. Add one-third of the beef. Stir-fry for 1 minute or until browned. Remove to a plate. Repeat twice with remaining beef, spraying wok each time.
3. Spray wok lightly with oil. Add vegetables and stir-fry for 3 minutes or until just tender.
4. Return beef to wok with soy sauce, oyster sauce, brown sugar, water and cornflower. Stir-fry for 1 minute or until heated through. Serve with brown rice.
I have more in my meal planner if your interested

pea and ham soup is easy and cheap if u have a slow cooker. Just put it on in the morning and its awesome by dinner time. Best of all, with a big enough cooker you can make enough to have leftovers for lunches or quick dinner later. Great for hiding some vegies in too!

Vegeroni is a yummy tasty one my Mum made for us all the time...
Can tomato soup
Pasta... Something like shells works well
Boil pasta set aside... Fry onion & bacon in fry pan once onion is cooked pour in soup & cream (the philadelphia cooking cream works well) once boiling turn heat off, sprinkle handful on grated cheese on cooked pasta pour over sauce & mix... Mum always served with a BBQ chook, but you could cook some chicken with the bacon & onion... Also can add any veg you like, even though its called vegeroni there isn't anything vegetarian about it! We've added mushrooms & asparagus... Either way it's quick, cheap, easy & ready in 10 mins!
