I'm not really in the mood for meat lately so maybe something vegeatrian...I love beans.
You sound like me. DH is retired, but I don't get to retire from cooking unless I am completely incapacitated or am dead. I try to cook as little as possible. Red skin potatoes are one of my favorite veggies. They are great without peeling. Add a ham steak and salad or some other veggie and maybe some rolls - you have simple meal. Add dessert if you must. How about ice cream?

Tonite we are having left over potato salad that I made yesterday plus lettuce, tomato, cucumber, lettuce and green onion salad freshly made along with some leftover chicken breast tenderloins from last nite. I'm thinking of cooking a little bacon to break up on the salad. We have some bananas and grapes for dessert.

Tommorrow? Who knows? Whatever I can throw together in about a half hour.
Always a beginner...sometimes I even finish.
