at the moment i'm used to cooking for my family inc. 1 evening mindee and would typically cook Spag. Bol; Chicken & Rice; chilli con carne stuff like that. I 've got some new vacancies now and wanna know what the general concensus is. I'm looking for less time in the kitchen!!!

Casseroles are fab, just stick everything (meat, potatoes, veg) in the slow cooker & leave it.
Agree that stir fries and pasta are quick and easy also anything you can prepare in bulk and freeze eg shepherds pie, spag bol, lasagne, chicken & mushroom pie, fish pie, meatballs, fish cakes, home made chicken nuggets etc.
