    My Go To meal is grilled cheese sandwinches but not just any. I spray the bread with butter flavored Pam, american cheese, and also put creamed cheese on them. The cream cheese is the kicker and makes them good and a break from the usual. I use a griddle and done in minutes! Fries or beans to accompany. Family loves this!

    Our go-to meal is usually either tacos or some sort of chicken stir-fry with whatever veggies are sitting in the fridge. My mom always has an extra lasagna sitting in the freezer in the basement for such emergencies.

    go to dinner is pizza. i use the betty crocker pizza dough packets and bottled sauce and add toppings. it’s a treat because we love pizza and cheaper than getting it for take out. i keep toppings, cheese, sauce and dough packets on hand every week just in case. not gourmet but we like it ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Liz

    I would have to say breakfast for dinner. I always have everything to whip up some quick pancakes and scrambled eggs.

  12. Tricia McShane

    My goto quick meal would be what my children call “mush”. Quickly cook ground beef(we usually use turkey) add cream of mushroom soup and milk and some worstershire sauce. Cook till comes to boil. Add minute rice. put lid on for 5 minutes to cook rice. Dinner is ready! add green beans and salad to complete meal. Quick and yummy.

    Taco Salad if I have chips, otherwise spaghetti. I love make-ahead meals and try to keep several on-hand in the freezer for those lazy days.

  14. Carrie

    Breakfast for dinner is my go to dinner on a busy night. Usually it’s cheesy scrambled eggs, sausage, toast and fried potatoes. Man that sounds good!
