Any bright and wonderful ideas for supper when the cook (me!) starts cooking at 5:45 pm!

Well, I've tried those 30 minute meals they talk about, and I must say they taste for the most part like that's all the effort put into it is only 30 minutes worth.
Salads don't fill me, at least for more than an hour. I must admit, I get much fuller on potato or macaroni salads, but then the purpose is defeated of course.
I have to feed two adult girls (my loving daughters, well, for the most part loving anyway) and a seven year old granddaughter to consider as well.
We are all busy all the time, on the go to this or that, so don't have an enormous amount of weekend time to cook and freeze. And the girls are busier than I am!
I know slow cooker meals are a good idea, but haven't found many recipes I have been impressed with there either.
I do stir frys, and the Canadian version of Chinese food, but that gets rather repetitive after a while too.
I am really, really not fussy, I know it's sounding like I am, but it's all the restrictions that are making it difficult to offer some variety while still staying with in the limits that are healthy to maintain.
Come on guys/ladies, I'm sure you all have some wonderful things to share here. Might even help out someone else Sparking? Oh, and thanks in advance for the ideas!
