There are some genuinely super mums out there, and as many food lovers would surely agree, one way to measure their greatness is to look at what they serve up at the dinner table. These wonderful mothers can juggle the day’s trials and tribulations and still deliver a strength-building array of beautifully-presented sustenance. They can seemingly balance the kids in one hand and the ingredients to a scrumptious dish in another, and leave everyone smiling. These awe-inspiring women can even pull off their delicious recipes in no time at all, and that’s something to be applauded by busy people – mums or not.
If this all sounds familiar, and you think you could well have a big ‘S’ for Supermum hidden under that T-shirt, you need to know about a competition Waterstones is running. In-keeping with your flair for quick, healthy dinners, you could win a copy of Jamie Oliver’s 30-Minute Meals to guide you on to even more fantastic dishes to please the whole family in no time at all.
All you have to do is leave a comment with your best recipe to feed a family of four in 30 minutes or under, and you could be the proud owner of Britain’s most popular cookbook ever. It’s as simple as that!
Waterstones is running this competition in celebration of Jamie’s new book in which he serves up delicious, healthy meals in an astounding 15 minutes or less!
Our’s in Spaghetti with homemade ‘Monster’ meatballs!
Ours is a good old cheesey pasta with some broccoli quick and easy for those busy nights 🙂 but nice and filling
It is a great family favourite, Spaghetti bolognese.
A firm favourite here is a good old cheese and pasta dish. My children insist on having broccoli with theirs too!
Our favourite is mexican lasagna and wedges
Our favourite go-to speedy recipe has to be ‘pretend pot noodle’ – Egg Noodles, bacon pieces, peas, peppers, veg stock and a smidge of soy sauce. All the kids demolish it – their record is 3 bowls each!
Chicken stir fry; chicken strips, matchstick carrots, mange tout, red pepper with a marinade (can serve separately as a sauce) with straight to pan noodles and toasted cashews (if nut eaters!).
My boys love Chicken thighs cooked in garlic and herbs with cous cous, new potatoes and salad. Goes down a treat every time 🙂
