Cook some chicken breasts and put some cooked bacon on top. Put some BBQ sauce on and some cheese and stick them under the grill. Really easy!

Beef sausages, mash beans and gravy
Smoked Sausage Salad

Boil potatoes, then mix in bowl with lettuce, spring onions (x4), raddishes.
Cook smoked sausage (x2), cut in to small pieces and place in bowl with rest of mixture
Add three table spoons of grainy mustard mix all toghether and serve

Chicken breasts, tin of condensed cream of mushroom soup. Bung the chicken into casserole dish, mix soup instead of using water or milk as suggests on can, use white wine. Pour oven chicken. Bung in some sweet corn if you fancy and some extra mushrooms if you like and serve with veg. Cook in oven or can be nuked in microwave but I prefer this one done slowly in oven.
