    Microwave kebab meat or hot dog sausages, bang on some bread, assault with chilli sauce or red sauce and burger relish.

    If I've got 5 minutes then a packet of noodles and add a load of chilli flakes, frozen prawns or whatever meat is left hanging about.

    Aldi do frozen chicken strips, those fried off and browned with some Italian Pesto. Quick and easy.

    I don't really run into that situation but I do love pizza once in a while. Two or three pizzerias I go to that would be meaningless to name here.
    Convenient cooking at home? I like hotdogs with mustard and butter on the side (no buns), egg salad, omelettes, ham with melted cheese, scrambled eggs with sausage links.

    +1 for burger carryout also. I forgot to mention.
    Edit: Taco Bell as well. I don't eat fast food much but I still like it.

    At home it's modified beans preferably made by myself. Cheese, butter, peanut butter and chillies.

    Course it is, innit!
    Only two things I miss: beer festivals and fish and chips. Seeing as I'm getting bigger and bigger of girth, it's probably just as well.

    I'm a big fan of the freezer!
    Whenever I cook I always make too much and put some in the freezer.

    Got a batch of rabbits delivered? Do a massive stew and freeze 3 extra meals to do with massive Yorkshire puddings in the future.
    Pheasants - cook them all up and turn a load in to pheasant meatballs or shredded or half bird and freeze them.
    Curried butter chicken - same


    Whatever it is, I get in bulk and freeze and it gets used in the future.


    Last year we decided to run the freezer down before getting a new one, took 3 weeks for us to eat it all!!!
    Means I'm never short of a quick easy beautiful dinner.

    Beans on toast. 5/6 minutes and it's on the plate ready to go. Some sprinkled cheese on top and it's fit for a king.

    I do most of the cooking in our house. When I can't be bothered cooking, best thing is a chicken, pop it in the oven with a pile of chopped up taters, turnip, any veg really underneath it. Takes 2 minutes. Sit on your ar*e for an hour and a half and you've a meal fit for a king.
    Err, we have this quite often!
