    My fav is Chicken & Dumplings, better suited to winter time.

    Boneless, skinless chicken breasts, I usually cut them in two
    handfull of baby carrots
    celery stalk-either cut up to eat or leave large and remove before making
    cut up onion
    sometimes button mushrooms and/or green or red peppers cut small
    large sprinkle of poultry seasoning
    1 can Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup (you can use the low fat/sodium variety if you want) 2 if you're making a large pot
    water & chicken broth (or bullion) to cook like a soup. Quanitites aren't real important.

    When the chicken is very done (usually a couple of hours or so, I like it so the chicken falls apart) take out the chicken pieces and add a couple cups of water, then I make dumpling's from the Bisquick box, usually the low fat variety (boiling the dumplings uses up the extra water you just added). I grind fresh pepper on the dough after they are dropped in the stew and before the "cover & cook" phase.
    Remove dumplings and put chicken back in the stew to serve.

    This really is quick to fix, I use pre-made ingredients like the chicken breasts, baby carrots, then just follow the directions on the bisquick box. There's some time spent at the beginning, then at the end, but a lot of downtime in between. Low cal and low fat if you use the right stuff, but you'd never know it. Rewarms well, too.

    Now, I'm hungry.

    Boil noodles in one spoon of oil and ofcourse water.water should be proper enough to get it boil.

    Stay-a-bed stew

    (from the "I hate to cook book" by Peg Bracken)

    2 lb. beef stew meet, cubed
    1 small can tiny peas, drained

    2 chopped onions
    1 tsp. salt

    Mix everything together in a crock pot or dutch oven with a lid. Cook in oven at 275 F for 5-6 hours, or on high setting for crock pot for 6-8 hours. Serve with french rolls and a salad.

    Onion soup meatloaf

    I have this in the oven as I type.

    2 lbs ground beef
    1 1/2 cup bread crumbs
    1 packet onion soup mix (like you'd use for dip)
    1/3 cup ketchup
    3/4 cup water
    2 eggs

    Mix eggs, water, ketchup and soup mix.
    Add the meat and use your hands to combine with liquid mixture.
    Add bread crumbs and knead away until everything is blended (good OT if you have weakness in hands like I do)
    Put in loaf pan and place in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
    Simple and classic!

    That's not cooking, that's opening!

    But it does sound good. I'll try.
