This is so easy and it's a MAJOR favorite at my house. Hope it helps!

EASY Pot Pie:

2 Deep dish pie crusts

2 cans cream of potato soup

1 cup frozen mixed vegetables

1/2 cup milk

salt & pepper

1 large chicken breast (about 1 lb) cut into bite sized pieces and then boiled

1 egg

Preheat oven to 375. Take pie crusts out of the freezer to thaw. Cut up and boil chicken. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, stir together soup, milk, salt and pepper and vegetables. Drain chicken and add to soup mixture. Place soup mixture in one of the pie crusts. CAREFULLY take the other pie crust out of its aluminum pan - this can be tricky - so be patient. Place it on top of the other crust, making it fit the other one (mine never looks good but it sure tastes good!) and pinch edges together. Make about 5 vent slices on top crust. Beat egg in another bowl and then baste about half on top of crust (this makes it turn golden brown and yummy). Bake at 375 for 45 minutes or until crust is nice and golden. Enjoy!

Here's some prepare ahead ideas:

I get those large packages of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. When I get home from the grocery store I split it up and put 3 - 4 breasts (that's usually how many I cook at a time) and a couple singles (quick lunches for my 4yo and I) in zip loc freezer bags. I add Italian dressing or bottled marinade or BBQ sauce or a bunch of herbs to each bag, zip them up and freeze them. I can pull a bag out of the freezer the night before or in the morning, put it in the fridge to thaw for dinner. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.

Wonderful salads all week long: I get a bunch of crunchy veggies - carrots, celery, radishes, jicama, zucchini, broccoli STALKS, not the flowery part (peel & slice they taste great!), cawliflower, english peas and frozen shelled edemame thawed. I clean & cut them all at once, throw them in a big tupperware container or one of those extra large freezer bags. Then I buy bagged lettuce. I dump lettuce into a bowl, throw a cup of the veggie mix on top and voila you have a wonderful side salad at every meal. Sometimes I'll cut up some tomatoes and cucumbers for that meal and throw some shredded or crumbled cheese on top or a can of drained sliced olives. Sometimes I'll just eat a cup of the veggie mix for lunch.

Or, while I'm waiting for the oven to preheat I'll cut a spaghetti squash in half length wise, put it in a baking dish with about a half inch of water and cook it in the microwave for 10 minutes. Then scrap the insides out with a fork... it shreds like spaghetti, I add butter and garlic salt.

I get the stir fry veggies in the frozen foods, dice up firm tofu or tempeh and stir fry them together in a little bit of oil and soy sauce, serve with rice - that's the whole meal.

My husband loved this one. We had some of those Little John's frozen burritos (my teen's snack food). I heated them in the microwave then smothered them with green chili (there's this brand that comes in a tall thin jar that is really good can't think of the name) that I heated on the stove, shredded cheese, diced tomatoes and sour cream.

Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches.

Fantastic World Foods brand tabouli salad is real easy to make but you have to make it at least an hour before. I usually add diced roma tomatoes, sliced green onions and cilantro to it. I serve it with either steamed or sauted spinach and spaghetti squash.

WHITE PIZZA... saute spinach, onions and mushrooms, drain liquid and put on a boboli pizza crust, cover with mozzerella cheese bake for 8 minutes. Sometimes I top it with diced tomatoes too.

Saute diced or strips of chicken in cooking sherry until just white (not all the way through), add sliced zucchini and yellow squash (sometimes I add mushrooms too), saute until veggies are almost soft then add either cream of mushroom or cream of celery soup, (if the sherry has evaporated I'll add some more or milk or water) bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 - 20 mins. Serve over cous cous or quinoa.

I got some Archer Farms sun-dried tomato dip... any smooth dip will work... mixed it with mayonaise (equal parts), spread half of it on the bottom of a baking dish, place fish on top of that (I used flounder, you can use tilapia, cod, orange roughy) then spread the remaining sauce over the tops of the fish filets and baked for 20 - 30 minutes at 400. Serve with steamed asparagus and jasmine rice. It was SO GOOD!

You can do the same thing with a 1/2 cup of mayo, a cup of sour cream, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp dried dill, and 1 tbsp dried marjoram. You can also top with bread crumbs if you like.

Brush salmon steaks with butter and minced garlic, broil for 5/10 mins on each side. Serve with horseradish sauce.

Marinate steaks with Italian dressing for at least 4 hours. (You can put it in a zip lock freezer bag like I do with the chicken).
