Chef’s note: When you have no time to cook or even think about cooking, the flavors for these quick easy, and most importantly delicious come from a jar of pre-mixed herbs and spices. All you have to do is add one or two additional ingredients and cook.

These are three of the combinations I use most often. Look in the spice aisle of your Stupidmarket” and find one or two you like. From these 3 combinations…27 different meals.
