I'd put #5 at #1 because it saves having to get dressed and drive somewhere.
Any meal that I don't have to cook is number one with me. I've never liked it; a trait I've inherited from my mother and I seem to have passed on to my kids. Everyone is a good cook, but it's seen as a chore not as a joy.


P.S. I love your top 10s!

I agree with Elspeth. But if no one is willing to cook, then I'll agree with Terry. :)

I might have put take out as number one if my live-in handyman and I hadn't enjoyed an extremely romantic dinner out last week. It was the first in a long time. Well worth the effort and actually wearing shoes :)

I love to cook and experiment, btw. I get tired of just "making dinner" but I really enjoy cooking. No so much on clean-up, though.

I haven't made salmon patties in a long time. Thanks for the reminder. I've figured out how to make a quick and tasty potato soup.

Ohmigosh! I totally forgot about Rice-a-Roni and beef! Now I *am* having a duh moment. :)

Helen - I have a wonderful recipe for baked potato soup. Thirty minutes max.

Elizabeth - You can use chicken tenders or breasts, pork chops, or beef with Rice-a-Roni. My family prefers the Spanish rice flavor but there are several.
I'm lucky because I have a husband who enjoys cooking. When it's my turn, I'll agree with Terry and opt for #5!

My live-in handyman is handy in the kitchen, too. We probably cook 50/50. Sometimes we cook together.
