We live in the northwest, so Salmon is slightly less expensive up here. Thanks!

Chess Pie:

5 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
3 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1 9-inch pie shell, unbaked

Directions:
1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine sugar and cornstarch. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. 2. Blend in the lemon juice and butter; stir in the lemon rind. 3. Pour mixture into the pie shell. Bake pie until puffed and golden and a thin knife inserted into pie comes out clean--about 50 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.

oooo quick and slightly fancy! Pasta is of course the quick and easy standard. It's nice to have several different kinds to make.

We always talk about making quesadillas, knowing they're quick and easy, but we never seem to. Great suggestion thanks! I'll tool for the cheese.

I'm not sure exactly what my schedule will look like once I have the work study but I'm pretty sure I will have at least one free evening while the boyfriend is at work. I think that night will be the "cook in advance night" great idea.

Scott (the BF) loves chili and I never really thought about how elastic it is. We've been thinking of staples that we always want to have around and availabe, chili will be one of those. Thanks for the recipe too.

My family has a similar recipe called smith special. Joe's and Smith will surely enter my repertoire. The pasta idea sounds tasty too, and damn cheap and easy to make. It'll probably end up being a once a weeker.

Trifecta with the baked chicken/fish/pork/veal It sounds tasty and versitile ideas are always the best for daily meals

Awesome, great tip! The interwebs provide so much bulk information what I need is context and human reccomendations. Thanks a lot.

Thank you so much! Trader Joe's keeps coming up so now a visit is imminent.

I'm actually eating Risotto my roommate made a day ago for lunch. It know it not known for keeping well but I really like it as a leftover. Great idea for somethine to make ahead of time and heat up later.

I'm copying the BLT salad to my list of things to make too.

We thought Trader joe's would be a good idea, ecspecially since there is one on my street. We hadn't thought of what to buy though. Thanks for the suggestions!

Freezing things for the future is a great idea. The kind of pragmatic, common sense that I have trouble coming up with hehe.

My boyfriend and I recently made the decision to be adults and start cooking for ourselves. Well, I love going out to eat, so really my boyfriend and my often empty checking account decided.

I've gone back to college and I'm doing a workstudy while maintaining a second late night job, he produces a 11pm newscast. So, when we end our days we don't have a lot of time to work with to make meals. I've been looking around the internet for tasty sounding quickly made dishes but I'm never sure what I can trust. That's why I've come to you, my fellow chowhounds, whom I respect and admire.

What are your favorite "daily" meals? I'm looking for satisfying chow that you could make after a hard day of work and classes. Say, no more than 45 minutes prep time.

I love leisure cooking but I just don't have the time for it. If you could help me out it would be so greatly appreciated. full recipes, hints, ideas, direction. I'd love any kind of help you could provide.

Thank You!

Well, that makes a load more sense.

The idea of meatloaf pizza is kind of frightening.

apizza scholls

I should go try the meatloaf pizza. It sounds suspect but perhaps it will make up for my last few lackluster visits to apizza scholls.

Strange as it may seem I have to admit the best pizza in the state is probably in Bend (Pizza Mondo) or Salem (Christo's). They have lower ambitions but flat out taste better as far as I'm concerned.
