What's your best hack for store-bought food?

It's been a long day and you've finally made it home. Nothing fancy or fresh in your kitchen. What do you do to jazz up something you have on hand?

I don't usually have leftovers, so I try to pass muster with what sad student staples I have. I open a can of plum tomatoes (or sometimes a ragout sauce in a jar...), mash it, add some garlic, herbs, paprika and chili powder, beans, pickled cabbage, pickled chiles, slice up some deli meat and mix them into a bowl. I crack two eggs, cover and nuke it for 2 minutes ... lazy shirred eggs.

Any lazy bachelor dinner ideas for 'one of those days'?
