Here's a list of what I make... My mom goes to Uni so I usually make my own meals...
Scrambled eggs and bread,
rice and salad or something else
I sometimes bake some bread and have a sandwich
If my laziness is greater than my hunger then I just starve (aka practicing for Ramadan):D

Mmmmmm¡K.foooooood. Speakin¡¦ of. I wish there were more halal restaurants. One opened up a year ago and now it¡¦s no longer halal because they sold it to a kafr. The next one is like 40 minute drive away. The reason why they sold it because running it was too time consuming.
Enough of my complaints¡K.to your quick and easy recipes with meat/chicken and veggies.
You should always have a bottle of oyster sauce (preferred) or teriyaki sauce or bbq sauce or curry paste if you want to go American or Desi (some curries don¡¦t go well with this dish ¡V I found that the red paste used for some soups do).
If you want flavor inside your meat, then marinate it with one of the sauces mentioned above.
„X Cut up meat into bite sizes
„X Cut veggies into bite sizes (jalepenoes if you want to go spicy)
„X Chopped desired amount of onions
„X Chopped desired amount of garlic
„X Sauce, salt, sugar (or ketchup), and pepper to taste
„X Oil for cooking (Olive-preferred-any would do but the taste does alter slightly)
1. Heat oil in the frying pan (good size frying pan if you don¡¦t want to make a mess) with medium heat
2. Saute onions till it is transparent
3. Saute in garlic till the kitchen starts to smell garlicy delicious
4. Put in desired amount of sauce (1/8 of a cup preferred or start with a small amount and add more as you taste while you cook (uhm¡Kafter the meat is cooked). If your meat was marinated, then add just a little bit of the sauce.
5. After the sauce is sizzling, turn up the heat to high or medium high if you are afraid to burn the sauce and add in the meat (stir occasionally to not burn the sauce or meat)
6. Add a pinch of salt, sugar, and desired amount of black pepper for taste
7. After the meat is cooked, stir in the veggies and turn off heat or turn it low depending on how crunchy you like your veggies. Let sit for a few minutes (3-5 preferreed).
If you feel bold or if it is available (Orientals always have cooked rice available at all times), you can make fried rice (though I recommend this only if you are not using BBQ sauce) by just stirring in the cooked rice AND you can add scrambled eggs to this dish as well (cook in separate pan while waiting for your meat to cook and add to the dish after it is done.)
This usually takes 10-15 minutes to cook depending on the meat.
Allah (SWT) bless....

Another dish with just meat (beef) and veggies (lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes) (10-15 minutes time):
 Thinly bite sized sliced beef
 Lettuce leaves, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers
 BBQ sauce
 Chopped onions and garlic
 Slat, sugar (or ketchup), and pepper to taste
 Oil for cooking (Olive preferred of course)
1. medium heat oil in frying pan
2. sauté onions and garlic until the aroma catches your hunger
3. add in BBQ sauce until it sizzles
4. add in the meat and let it cook (stir once in a while so you don’t burn the sauce)
5. add in pinch of salt, sugar and desired amount of black pepper
6. add in more BBQ sauce so the dish is not dry (almost drown the meat with BBQ sauce)
On a round or oval shaped plate, place the leaves of lettuce so that it covers the plate. Place the slices of cucumbers and tomatoes at the edge of the plates (design it as you like. You can go tomato-cucumber all around or cucumbers all around and then tomatoes all around- whatever-you get the idea). Then place the dish in the center of plate not covering the tomatoes or cucumbers. Served best with white rice.
Allah (SWT) bless...

haha reminds me of last year..
okay quick, handy, and yummy:
1) grilled cheese sandwich
2) grilled chicken sandwich
4) stir fry
5) mashed potatoes
6) quick steak (you know those really thin strips of meat? marinate in soya sauce, garlic, salt, pepper, red pepper...then kinda fry it...doesn't take very long at all)
7) a combination of the above things
8) chawal + daal + qeema (no, it's not keema or kheema, and i guess if you're not desi, then you can't appreciate this food)
11) ANY TYPE OF PASTA
12) ANY TYPE OF SALAD
SOMEBODY STOP ME
