    For salads, I always use parmesan. But for omelets, it's always cheddar. It melts JUST right!

    I love string cheese (sticks of mozzarella or some other cheese). You can cut them up and just toss them into a salad.

    Goat cheese is delicious in omelets or just off the spoon!

    Feta is greAt in salads and omelets. We are liking the Trader Joe's one in the white and light blue plastic box. Do not get if you have trouble w dexterity. It is a bit of a puzzle.

    Rice and water (equal amounts usually, but sometimes more water is required depending on rice) with salt in rice cooker. Sprinkle chicken with turmeric, thyme, and basil. Set it in a steamer basket over the rice cooker. Cover and cook about 20(?) minutes or until rice is done. You can throw some veggies in the basket as well.

    Tahini is a ground sesame/olive oil paste, refrigerated after opening, often found in middle eastern/Mediterranean section or sometimes condiment section...deli dept. will know where, depending how elaborate your grocer is...it's typically readily available though.

    Sesame seeds really add tons of nutritional value to it, plus tastes yummy!

    Great ideas here, thanks!
    I made hummus from scratch once, including the tahini. But without a food processor it was a pain, so it might be the last time.

    Something I used to see on a tv commercial:
    Place a piece of chicken with veggies (couple carrot sticks and potato perhaps) in the middle of a square of foil. Season. Close it up and throw in the oven.
    The person would then go jogging and come back to a cooked meal.

    Don't forget grilled cheese sandwiches. I sometimes put in a piece of sandwich meat with the cheese or slice of tomato. Instead of spreading with butter, you could try lightly spraying or brushing on oil.

    The vegetable stock might give it enough liquid to blend smoothly? I've always used immersion blender or magic bullet, no problem with blending.

    Didn't seem to have enough liquid. If I do try it again I'd do a lot of adjustments. But I don't see that happening.

    I have done this with parchment paper....you can use fish or chicken...I do not know about beef. But I lay sliced veggies on top and usually put a glob of Dijon. It is really impressive. I forget the heat but the time is short. You would pay a fortune for it in a restaurant! The presentation is that pretty.
