Consider the meal kit delivery services, I use http://www.blueapron.com. You hop online to choose your recipes for the upcoming weeks, and the ingredients arrive neatly packaged with very simple instructions. It eliminates the need to shop, plan, measure, etc., and eliminates waste as you are only shipped enough of each ingredient that is relevant to the recipe. It definitely results in greater menu rotation variety, and the food is delicious. They have 30-minute choices if you want to choose the meals that have the quickest prep times. My teenager enjoys cooking in this manner as well, much less overwhelming.
