Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Who said you could have pancakes only for breakfast? Don't bother yourself with eggs, flour, and milk. Just buy a ready-made mix and pour it in a pan to have warm pancakes within minutes, with the syrup of your choice.

Sandwich and Drink

Grab some baguettes (they are really cheap and have a longer shelf life too) and a nice chunk of cheese that you like. Slice the baguettes and the cheese, to make sandwiches and have it with a juice of your choice.

Scrambled Eggs

Take as many eggs as you want. Pour a teaspoon of oil in a skillet, break the eggs, add ½ cup of milk, salt, pepper, and herbs if you have any. Toast some slices of bread and you are all set to eat the meal!

Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese

You will need a can of tomato soup, bread, and cheese for making this dish. For making your task easier, use cheese spread. Put two slices of bread on a pan to just slightly warm them up.
Once done, spread some cheese on the slices, and make sandwiches. Meanwhile, heat the soup in a microwave oven. Have the soup and the sandwiches together, to get a fuzzy feeling on a chilly winter nights.

French Toast

To make French toast, you will need 3 eggs and a loaf of bread. Break the eggs and beat them with salt, pepper, and some milk into a frothy mixture. Slice the slices of bread into half, dip the slices in egg batter and fry them in a preheated skillet with 3 tablespoons of oil.
