If you’re anything like us, you’re running around like a headless chickens before the kids head back to school next week. Where have the summer holidays gone? How am I going to find the time to do all of THAT ironing? Why is my child obsessed with buying back-to-school stationery? And what on earth are we going to eat for dinner?
Clearly, anything food-related is automatically promoted to the top of the priority list. So here are some delicious recipes ideas to make your life easier. Not only that, but you can also stick any leftovers in the freezer for those days when you just don’t have time to cook. Sounds good to us!
1. Butternut Macaroni Cheese
From BBC Good Food
There’s only thing better than macaroni cheese. That’s macaroni cheese with the added sweetness of roasted butternut squash. It takes just 10 minutes to prepare, so you’ll have oodles of time to run around with your kiddiwinks before bedtime.
2. Chicken and Sweet Potato Cacciatore
From Jamie Oliver’s Every Day Super Food
Yes, it does sound rather posh and decadent. But we promise it’s super simple and utterly divine. It’s a big Mummies’ Club favourite, tempting even the fussiest of eaters to devour the lot.
3. Minty Lamb Koftas
From Annabel Karmel
Who can resist a lamb kofta? Not us. These are good for pretending you’re still on your summer holiday. Barbecues are still fun in the rain – particularly when you get to eat one of these little taste sensations as your reward.
4. Sweet Potato Fish Pie
From Lorraine Pascale for Mother and Baby magazine
This recipe takes the humble fish pie to a whole new level, with gorgeous, almost-caramel sweetness from the topping and an added kick of vegetables too. We freeze these in ramekins, so you can just whip a couple of portions out of the freezer whenever you need them.
5. Friday Night Coconut Chicken Curry
What better way to celebrate the end of the week than with a curry? This one is packed with nutrients to keep those back-to-school germs at bay.
