Request: 1 staple recipe, 1 weekend recipe

Recently married, starting to do the cooking as I get home everyday before my wife. I've looked at all the quick, simple and cheap recipe websites and built a small list we both seem to enjoy (different types of chicken, stuffed burgers, spaghetti, BBQ ranch quesadillas, blackberry pork, etc).

However, we want more! So, could you share with me your one weekday staple meal you actually enjoy cooking, and one meal that, if you have a little more time on the weekend to make, you experiment with and love?

Obviously recipes that are slightly easier to make would be better since I'm still a budding chef. Thanks!
