I know I menu planned. Even whilst I plan it I know I’ll never stick to it, it’s like a rule telling me what to do and the second something becomes just a little bit bossy I lose interest. So lunch today was this…
French bread spread with Boursin, grapes, tomatoes drizzled in garlic infused oil and balsamic vinegar sprinkled with just a touch of seasalt. A few black olives, a dollop of caramelised onions, a dollop of leftover homemade hummus and some grapes.
Serving as a reminder that fast food never needs to be junk.
This is a really cheap, really easy and quick tea to make. Ideal for a Saturday on the sofa staring at a TV.
what you need:
packet of potato wedges Mexican flavour (laaaayzy i know)
tin of tuna
big squeeze of mayonnaise & ketchup
3 large handfuls of grated cheese
2 onions chunkily chopped
2 red pepper chunkily chopped
what you do:
pre-heat oven to 200C
toss the onion & pepper in a little olive oil & roast in a large tray for 10 minutes
add the frozen wedges to the tray and return to the oven (cook wedges for time specified on packet)
mix the tuna with the ketchup & mayonnaise – sprinkle over the cooked wedges
sprinkle over the grated cheese
return to the oven for a couple of minutes until the cheese melts.
you’re really going to need to produce a few veggies with this number – think homemade coleslaw, sweetcorn and perhaps that perpetual children’s favourite baked beans. That’s at least 3 of your 5 a day, which balances out the laziness perfectly.
This serves 2 adults and 2 children – if you need it to go further – add more baked beans!
