Take a cast iron skillet or some other range to oven-safe pan. Grease the sucker however you like. Pam, butter, whatever.

Eyeball the next part because pan size varies. Place any vegetable or meat in the pan you want. Make sure the meat is all the way cooked through though. Pour in enough beaten egg to cover the ingredients. Let the veggies warm and wilt in the pan. 

If some poke through that's fine, fry it till the eggs are semi-soft. Then place pan into preheated 350 Degree F. oven. Bake for about five minutes until cheese on top is melted or eggs are firm (If you don't like cheese.

If you did it right the whole thing will come out with little effort and then cut with a knife (Pizza cutter works best.)

It was my cheap-ass take on an Italian Omelet I saw on the Food Channel.

2 teaspoons of margerine.
Various soup and noodle flavour sachets from the bottom of my cupboard....(Beef, cream of chicken, asian, corn, and pumpkin flavours ^_^)
7 or 8 of those flavour sachets that used to be in the samboys chip packets. (tomato, salt and vinegar and barbecue for those curious.)
Soy Sauce
Lancanshire Sauce
Sweet Chilli Sauce
Basil Pesto
Red Capsicum
Minced Tomatoes
Grated Cheese
Minced Garlic
Sun dried tomatoes.

Cook the rice in a reasonable amount of water with 3/4 or so of the flavour sachets and the butter. Drain the water add the cheese, sauces, remaining flavour sachets and pesto. dice the capsicums and onions and zucchini. Throw the grilled tomatoes and zucchini in a frypan. Cook for a while....until it looks good remove before anything explodes XD. Mix it all together, garnish with sun dried tomatoes.

Tonight's dinner - Thanksgiving-in-a-Bowl (an alternative Shepherd's Pie)

1 lb ground turkey
garlic powder
poultry seasoning (couldn't find my sage)
one tiny can green beans
half can of carrots, diced
one can sweet potatoes
instant potato flakes

Brown turkey, seasoning to taste.  Spread in the bottom of square casserole dish.  Top with green beans and diced carrots (or other veggies that you have handy).  Empty sweet potatoes into a bowl and mash.  Add potato flakes and continue to mash until consistency is approximately that of soft mashed potatoes, and spread over turkey and veggies.

Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.

Noodle noose:

Flavourless string noodles. You know the ones.
Orange juice.

Cook noodles, add the rest. Be brave.

This tasted terrible but the noodles tasted like shit so we just added various alcohols to them in attempt to make it better. XD
