Today is the start of a new week for me following our long weekend. The three of us headed to our uncle’s holiday house for a relaxing weekend away which didn’t quite go to plan as Grace was really unsettled both nights which I put down to a combination of teething and being away from her familiar surroundings. However, it was still nice to get away for a few days to somewhere quiet and peaceful.
This week, I’ve decided to have a little break from some of my homely duties and am going to have a week of ‘simple cooking’. As much as I love cooking, I’ve found recently that the time between four and six is always spent preparing meals for either us or Grace. This week, we are going to have either meals that I have recently made extra of and frozen (such as soups, casseroles and pasta sauces) or meals that can be made with little preparation time. I have a whole week’s worth of meals frozen for Grace too.
What are your stand-by meals for times when you really don’t feel like cooking?
