What’s for dinner tonight?


What’s for dinner tonight?

For us it’s pizza I think…one of my favourites! :))

It seems in all my investigation that THE biggest challenge, over & over again, with big families, small families, old or young families, single & busy people, almost everyone, is what to cook tonight!!prawn salad

We want tasty, we want easy, we want good for us, & we want something a little bit different than the meals we throw together over & over again.

We want something we can be proud we made, something new & tasty, as well as fresh & yummy!

So this year we will share some fabulous ideas, & all input is welcome :))

And we hope to get our foodie forum running hot with all sorts of help from all of us.chicken satay

  1. 6 veggies for dinner tonight for us:2 baked, 2 steamed &
    2 mashed. No butter in the mash, only sour light cream!!!
    Some leftovers for a cold lunch tomorrow.

    • You go Val….aren’t veggies just the best!!!
      We ended up with marinated tofu & 6 veggie stirfry, so yummy…
      Also some leftover for lunch, lol xx

  2. I like the one on keeping stuff in the freezer without ruining it. I made ice cream today so don’t need that one.

    You are in a great place to teach the basics of cooking for a family. I look forward to 2017 with you.

    • Oh how lovely of you Maureen, thank you :))
