Quick, Easy Homemade Meals for a Whirlwind Month?

Good Questions

Q: My husband and I are about to have a whirlwind of a month. We work full-time, plus we're buying a new place, packing up our current place, moving in, renovating, applying to grad school, and traveling for the holidays all over the next 4 to 5 weeks. We don't expect to have much time to cook, but we'd still like to eat healthy, tasty dinners.

Do you have any suggestions for convenience foods or quick meals that don't require much prior planning?

Editor: Tori, this is a good time to stock the fridge with a pot of pasta (tossed generously with olive oil so it doesn't stick together too badly) and a big bowl of ragu. It's easy to heat up, and it's easy to make.

Readers, what else would you suggest?
