Imagine you get back from work after a long day and drop heavily into your couch as you slowly start to unwind. The rumbling sound from your stomach reminds you that you missed an earlier meal.
“What should we eat tonight? You ask yourself.
“Rice? Not again, must have had that like every other day in this week alone.”
“Yam?” the monologue continues, “It's a bit too late for that right? Sounds like breakfast”
A light bulb goes up in your head, maybe mix it up a bit and do something with Beans. “Hmmm, without a pressure cooker it takes over an hour to cook”. You sigh and try to hold back the feeling of frustration that settles when you remember any moment now your family would be home demanding dinner. Sleeves rolled up you head into the kitchen and with the last ounce of energy in your body; you begin to prepare something that would hopefully turn out well.
“I'd simply go with good old Rice and spice it up with some vegetables,” you decide. With the Rice cooking, you have a few minutes to yourself to relax. You opt for the couch again. Eyes closed for a minute and some minutes later you are awakened by noises as the kids rush in with an unmatchable burst of energy. It's only then you notice the smell coming from the kitchen. You sigh and conclude, "This is not going to work"
"Hey we are eating out tonight!" you announce and the kids squeal with delight. Since dinner is already burnt we might as well just eat out.
How on earth can you cope with serving stemming hot delicious meals at dinnertime after a long day? I haven’t figured this out, have you? Any tips on fast, creative, and easy to cook meals that you could serve for dinner?
My ideal will be something that I can prepare within 30 - 45mins. Any thoughts?
