But, and it's a BIG BUT (I said "but" not "butt"!), I have two young kids, school work, and a job I'm about to start. Therefore I have little time to indulge in this thing I love to do.
And so, sometimes, I cheat. Because I like easy and easy likes me.
I thought I'd share some of my cheat foods with you. And maybe you could tell me some of yours.
This is so yummy and easy - you just add a cup of hot water and it's ready in five minutes. I serve it with roast chicken, vegetables and plum chutney.
I've used this on chicken, fish, vegetables, as a body scrub (kidding) - everything except, um, steak. I know, it's not refined, it's not classy, but do I care?
Pasta Sauce.It's a pantry staple - because in a pinch you can just heat it in a pan and pour it over some pasta.
Can I just recommend one thing? Get a vanilla, yellow, or white cake mix, and add a tin of pumpkin pure in place of water. It's not healthy and it's not low fat, but it is SO tasty! (I can't remember where I found this recipe - it may be from another blog, so apologies if it was yours!)
I'm not sure whether it's because I secretly enjoy it, or whether it's because I enjoy watching my fourteen-month old smear it all over his face, but I like pudding.
I was not paid for any of the product mentions in this post. They're just my opinions.
