    1-2 scrambled or fried eggs with hot sauce and a slice of toast with jam, and a cup of tea.
    Alternatively, a fried egg sandwich with mayo and/or mustard & pickles.

    Chicken thighs in a shallow roasting pan half covered with Wicker's BBQ marinade, pop it in an oven for an hour. Open a can of greens and a can of field peas. Possibly slice some tomatoes. Feels like real food and all I have to do is pour.

    If I don't want to wait an hour I often make a salad - boxed greens, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, and those tiny peppers - topped with edamame and a poached egg. Egg can be done in the microwave.

    Spaghetti is usually our "I don't feel like cooking" meal.

    if i'm being really lazy- toast and peanut butter. If we're being a little more liberal with the definition of 'no cooking', then I'd say baked oatmeal with whatever fruit is laying around

    I get the salad kits from Aldi for a quick lunch. For dinner I do a grilled chicken salad. I buy the garden salad, sliced mushrooms, and southwest chicken from Aldi and mix it together in a big bowl. It's enough for me and my fiance with some left over.

    When I REALLY don't want to cook, I microwave some popcorn and pour myself a glass of wine.

    I'll buy some pre-made taco meat or carnitas from the store and do tacos. Because tacos. Or grilled cheese and tomato soup.
