For me, that usually means a bowl of Top Ramen spruced up with Sriracha sauce, chopped green onions and cilantro. Because by adding a few extra ingredients, I can pretend like I actually cooked. Just let me have my delusions, OK?
Clearly I'm not the only one who wants a few shortcuts, because when user WebLlama asked Reddit for tips on ways to make their favorite simple foods even more delicious, there was plenty of advice to be given. Use one of these easy meal upgrades next time you can't deal with dinner.
As one Redditor said: "Sometimes when we haven't shopped for groceries in a while we have quesadilla night and it's glorious." I couldn't agree more. Here are some tips to make them even better.
It's hard to think that anything could be better than two slices of crisp, buttery bread with melted cheese inside, but I have to admit these upgrades sound pretty tasty.

As I've already confessed, I probably eat too much ramen. Maybe next time I'll have to give one of these tasty variations a try.
The blue box mac and cheese will always hold a special place in my heart. It's one of the easiest, most satisfying lazy meals you can make. But throw in a few of these additions, and you might have a new favorite way to eat it.
A nice, juicy burger certainly doesn't require anything extra, but if you're feeling adventurous, try one of these ideas.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to pasta. You can make it a one-pot meal, or you can easily amp up plain noodles. Try one of these flavorful upgrades to simple pasta dressed with garlic and olive oil.
Don't forget the most important meal of the day. As much as I love my bowl of Cheerios, it's always nice to have a hot breakfast every now and then, and it doesn't have to be complicated.
