What shall I have for dinner tonight?

I'm out of ideas for something delicious and simple to cook tonight, but which does not require many ingredients. Assuming I have all the basics in my cupboard (onions, garlic, pasta, rice, potatoes, eggs, milk, herbs and spices etc) what should I make for dinner tonight?

I know what I DON'T want. It can't be a curry as I had that last night, and I don't really want pasta. Not chilli and not stir fry. To make things harder, my fiance is out until 8.45pm tonight so I need to be able to make something that I can eat earlier and then re-heat for him later (we don't have a microwave).
So - what should I cook? I eat everything and have no allergies etc, so really - anything goes. My only caveat is that I don't want to buy a ton of ingredients, I don't have time to slow-cook anything, so a meal that takes under 3 hours is preferable, and I don't really want a meat & potatoes type suggestion, I love one pot meals and stuff like that.
I love cooking and I cook almost every night so I love food prep, chopping, etc. I'm just exhausted and tapped out and I've perused so many online recipes but nothing takes my fancy. I just want someone else to make the decision for me!
