    What is your go-to recipe/meal when you are out of all other ideas for dinner?

    We all have those nights where we'd rather do anything other than make dinner.  So what do you do?  Do you pull out a favorite quick and easy recipe to make?  Do you pick up the phone and order pizza? How do you solve the dinner dilemma?

    Garlic-herb chicken. It may seem complex, but I find it to be one of the easiest meals to make. The difficult thing is deciding what to go with it.

    I absolutely love fresh tune but when I'm not in the mood to cook, I end up using canned tuna. I usually prefer the one without flavor. I saute it in onions and mushrooms and add some green or/and red pepper. It's a really good rice topping and it goes great with salad too.
    But when I'm really hungry and I'm really tired, I get the phone and order pizza or Chinese food. smile

    Well when there's nothing to eat round the house,I usually go for pasta.

    It's reasonably fast to cook pasta plus you can make a sauce with almost anything you find round the fridge.

    My fall back that everyone in the house will eat is Tacos.  We have a lot of beef due to the fact that my Father has a cattle ranch, so tacos are cheap and easy at my house.

    Hummus with Peach Salsa and GF and HFCS Free crackers.  It's fast and easy, letting me get on with projects I need or want to do.

    A hearty warming super soup does the trick for the family every time - healthy too!

    We like fried egg sandwiches with cheese and fruit or carrots on the side.  Another good and super quick meal is homemade tomato soup (made with tomato juice) and grilled cheese sandwiches.

    My go-to recipe is Inside-Out Chicken Kiev. I generally have chicken breasts in the freezer and you really just crumb the chicken breast (sometimes beat it out thin like a schnitzel for quicker cooking) cook on both sides in a pan, and while it is finishing cooking off in the oven I mix chopped garlic, parsley,butter and squeeze of lemon together. When chicken is cooked I put a dollop of the butter mixture on the hot chicken and yummo! serve it with a salad and you are done.
