Quick, Easy Dinner Ideas

Since we don't have much time between the time Jeffrey gets home from work and the time we have to leave if we're going to go see Cory act, I need something quick and easy for dinner.  Here are a couple quick, easy dinner ideas I used this week:
  • Monday night I made grilled cheese with smoked turkey.  (banana peppers on mine)
  • Tonight I'm planning to heat up a can of Chunky soup and serve it over baked potatoes.
  • and last night, even though we weren't going anywhere, I made omelets using some leftover steak, onions, and peppers I'd cooked up for fajitas a few days ago.  Yum!
I don't know why I feel like I'm 'cheating' when I serve something like that for dinner - those all sound pretty good!  I guess it's because I can cook, I do cook, and I feel like it's part of my job to put a good meal on the table.  Then again, it's also part of my job to balance everything that needs done, and sometimes there's just not enough time to cook a great meal from scratch.  As long as there's something to eat!

Don't get me wrong, I don't cook fancy gourmet meals, and I really do like simple recipes.  Some things just seem too simple, and I have to make myself appreciate that simplicity.  Jeffrey doesn't mind, and when he's home, Cory doesn't mind.  Even the simple stuff is better than a lot of the 'food' he can get at college.
