Hello again, Five Weeknight Dishes readers. I hope you’re not feeling pressured to cook dinner tonight. Most of us are already spending more time than usual thinking about food, and how to get and keep it. Between the elder and younger generations of my family, I’m currently food shopping for eight people, in four different households. (All via contactless deliveries and dropoffs.) It’s been a lesson in paring down to the real staples. (For us, it seems to be eggs, milk, lemons, apples, cheese, greens and bread; we stocked up our shelf-stable pantries before lockdown.) Cooking may not be your top priority right now, but you can still eat well.

Here are five recipes for your week:

1. French Onion Grilled Cheese

A basic grilled cheese sandwich doesn’t always feel like dinner, but this does. If you have a slow cooker, use it to caramelize the onions: At a low setting, they are less likely to burn if you wander away from the kitchen or get distracted (which is happening to me an awful lot).
