I do a have a couple yummy & easy ones I can share if others are looking.
    Get a slow cooker lol, I have two It's just kiddo and I, we eat a lot of slow cooker meals, all year long But other wise I tend to keep it simple, meat, a vegetable & a starch for kiddo. I work around whatever is on sale and/or I'll get the most "points" for. Last night I did a lemon chicken in the oven with broccoli, it was based on the recipe in the Sobeys flyer this week, but I didn't want to fry the chicken first because I don't really have a pan I can use. So I glazed and baked it instead. I use my indoor grill a lot. Any meat that is on sale, fresh or frozen. Now if you want ideas for the slow cooker, that I can do! It's funny because I have lots of cook books but I tend to just be basic with everything. My boy likes his meat plain, so I cook it with just a bit of seasoning, then add sauce or spices to mine.

    Yeah, I third that. Get a slow cooker, lol. My hubby is picky too (and also doesn't like cream sauce - wth!? cream sauce is a-ma-zing!!!). There are some amazing recipes out there, and chilli is always an easy go to that I know DH will like. It's totally worth the investment. You can even do chicken tacos in there..soup..bread..lasagna..pretty much anything can be done in the slow cooker. I don't use it nearly as often as I should.

    As for recipes, non slow-cooker...you and I probably rotate the same few. DH always wants things like spaghetti, sloppy joes, chilli, tacos, meatloaf (I have a good meatloaf one I actually got from @nat77 a while ago...made in muffin pan instead of bread pan - yummeh. ALWAYS use this recipe now!). I try not to do the same meat twice in a row, but I don't usually get too fancy. Usually make my own shake n bake type thing with spices I have on hand and corn flakes/panko crumbs and use that for chicken/pork. Stir Frys are always a good go to - and easy! Not sure if that's much help or not.

    I tried to get a slow cooker a couple years ago but hubby was anti-slow cooker. Might try again to convince him we need one. BUT I heard they are a pain in the butt to clean! Are some easier than others? Recommendations on brands etc?

    What meals do you currently cook Julesie?
    Greek seasoned chicken with Diana chicken & rib sauce (with or without a cheese wedge)

    chicken with pasta sauce, sweet peppers & cheese

    Baked salmon with Greek seasoning

    winter cooking (haven't cooked these since its been warm):

    lasagna

    chili (which hubby isn't really a fan of, he prefers his dad's but that version takes like 5 hrs to make, so I don't make it)

    meatloaf

    turkey meatballs over pasta

    chicken Parmesan

    bolonaise meat sauce over pasta

    i also have a sheppards pie recipe but I haven't cooked in ages as I find it rather heavy, I think I might try substituting the potato for sweet potato & the oatmeal for flax meal

    then veg as a side for pretty much all of the above

    Oh I love these But I don't find the crock pot that hard to clean really, no harder than any other pot or pan really. I do put it in the dish washer if it's too bad, though my smaller one fits better than my big one. I just have cheap ones from Walmart, one small and one big.

    I also like skillet meals, meat (ground or diced beef, chicken or turkey) and pasta or rice with some sauce. But I tend to use creamy ones which I guess aren't an option. Add in broccoli or something. White chili is good too, chicken instead of beef, no tomatoes, some broth, white beans, I add in carrots as well, and chili spices.

    Tuna, sweet potato, carrot cakes, mix up a can of tuna, with cooked carrots and sweet potatoes, add in horse radish for some zing, make into patties, you can coat them in corn meal if you like, fry them up (non stick pan works well), serve with a salad or whatever on the side.

    Kabobs are good, I have a stand up grill with a kabob thing, put on meat (salmon, chicken, beef, whatever you like) with veggies like mushrooms, zucchini, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and grill them. Serve with some rice.

    If you like peppers, stuffed ones are good. You could use quinoa instead of rice, adds a bit more protein - can also be made in a slow cooker.

    Oh, I like cabbage rolls too, but am usually too lazy so just use beef, shredded cabbage, rice and tomato sauce (bake or use the slow cooker).

    More likely next weekend, since it closes Thursday night and we usually have to chase people for wishlist changes etc

    I use my slow cooker more in the winter. Love making pulled pork. We Google various recipes they all turn out.

    I have a meal spreadsheet. I will hop on my computer and post. I try to keep adding to it to add variety. We have our favourites too though. Sometimes looking at it reminds me I can pair something up differently.
