Do you think Ramen Noodles counts as dinner?

Let's just face the facts: I have no motivation to make grownup food with Nathan gone. Sydney wanted to help fix dinner tonight - she decided on Ramen Noodles. Okay. Ramen meets my dinner requirements: quick, easy, no mess, 10 minutes or less, crowd pleaser. Everyone loved it, and we dressed it up a bit with a salad (from a bag) and sliced french bread, but it was still pretty sad. I think it may be time to make a weekly meal plan. So, what are your favorite quick meals? Please help inspire me.

A real weekly plan helps with shopping. Your meals don't have to be sophisticated, just healthy. If you enjoy what the kids do, and preparation's easy, that's all you need.

Sticking with the pasta theme...spaghetti is always good in a pinch. Less sodium than Ramen, and tomato sauce is supposed to be good for you! :-)
Tacos are another of my favorite quick-fixes.
And "breakfast for dinner" is a favorite fall-back. So we might have toast or pancakes or biscuits, add some eggs, a little ham or bacon, and I call it good.
