I am in the same situation and slowly, slowly building a list of super quick dinners for my family of three. I have never liked cooking. One current favorite that also makes a great lunch at work from leftovers is broccoli chickpea salad.
1 bag of broccoli slaw (usually near the bagged lettuce and cole slaw mix at store) 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed crumbled feta cheese - no specific amount, but I try to go easy because of the fat and the flavor goes a long way.

About once a month I buy a large amount of ground turkey and ground beef. I cook it and season it: 1. Italian w/onions, garlic, italian seasoning(lasagna, spaghetti) 2. Mexican w/ homemade taco seasoning (tacos, taco salad, mexican casserole) 3. Sloppy Joe w/green peppers, onions, garlic I also use some of the uncooked meat to make meatloaf mix.
I put about a pound each in zip lock bags and freeze for a quick meal.
I need some meal ideas! I work 50hrs a week, am raising two kids, and go to college. I don't have a lot of time to spend cooking. I miss 2 of 3 meals w/my kids each day so they don't have to be family friendly recipes. My husband cooks for the 3 of them.
I usually eat instant oatmeal, smoothies, grilled chicken patty from Fatburger (job #1), once and awhile sushi (job #2), and 93/7 turkey burgers. I need some new things I can make in less than 10mins or that I can make enough to last a few days and it still taste good.
I'm not big on pork or fish. Chicken, turkey, beef, or no meat is preferred. And if you have ideas of stuff I can take and eat on the go (in the car) that's even better!
