I don’t know about you but I’m always seriously knackered and can’t be bothered to cook and wish I had a fridge full of home made delicious goodies to feed me and hubs once we’ve got the three little bears to bed of an evening. I don’t mind cooking for them as they’ve had a lovely hot meal at school so all they need is a baked potato or some pasta or a wrap….something low effort and quick to make.
But by the time I’ve supervised homework, listened to music practice, put a load of washing on, stacked the dishwasher, read through school paperwork for tomorrow, bathed the littlest bear, made sure the big two have showered, folded clothes up for the morning, checked their reading books and tucked the time-consuming little poppets into bed – the LAST thing I really want to do is cook for my poor husband!
So, having inhaled a glass of wine, the solution occurs to me and when and if I’m organised enough and/or have the time/inclination/groceries/inspiration to prepare something in advance then this recipe is a goodie. And actually the best thing about this dish is that it’s so enormous you can eat it for weeks! Mission accomplished! Healthy and delicious it’s great with a salad or on it’s own, it can be eaten hot or cold and if you’ve got adventurous kids they may well enjoy it too.
