Cheat like you mean it

To pad out a week's menu with minimal effort and only one dirty saucepan, add:

Red beans and rice: Cook 1 box Zatarain's red beans and rice; add 1 package cooked chicken from cold cuts section of grocery store. 3-4 meals.

Doofer squares (my family's name for store-bought ravioli, because they're not Mom's ravioli but they'll do-fer now): Boil 1 package Buitoni or similar ravioli 10 min. Top with favorite pasta sauce. 3 meals.

Raspberry chipotle potstickers: Boil 1 box HEB pork potstickers (in the appetizers section of the frozen food aisle) 5-6 min. Drain and serve with Fischer & Wieser Raspberry Chipotle sauce as dipping sauce. 2 meals.
