Meal ideas

hit me with some meal ideas - I normally love cooking but have got a bit bored with it lately. I've started doing some volunteer work & theres a couple of nights a week that I get home later, but want something tasty, healthy & quick to make.
We dont eat/enjoy takeaways so none of those suggestions!

What ideas do you have for me!

I make a rice mince curry dish that is all in one dish and is even better the next day. Would you like it?

Chef_tinkagirl, Apr 11, 7:54 pm

Yes please! I love trying new things - one dish wonders are wonderful!

I still like to make a 'substantial' meal even when I'm home later. Usually I prep my evening meal earlier in the day also - I'd never dream of making a toasted sandwich/something equally as bad for dinners!

slowcooker for the nights you are home later, what kind of meals do you like?

slow cooker is great. I do silverside in it, a hearty vege soup especially as its coming into winter, lots of slow cooked stews/casseroles also. Most of the casserole stuff I cook the vege when I get home as I dislike over cooked vege.
We do things like Apricot chicken, Curry, and plain beef casseroles, all can be prepared before work and left to slow cook all day.
