I am so over having the same things all the time, so am looking to find something different to cook tonight.

I need inspiration (or recipes!)

So what are you cooking tonight?

Roast turkey with potato, pumpkin, cauliflower and carrots.  It's too hot for it really, but will still be nice!

Nothing too fancy here tonight. Some snags on the barbie, chucked into some long rolls with fried onions, cheese and sauces. I'll make some home made chippies and a salad.

Dessert will probably be a cornetto (they are currently on special at woolies (2 boxes for $8).

Lazy Salmon Quiche with basmati rice and salad.

Lazy Salmon Quiche involves tossing a tin of salmon,half a cup of self raising flour, half a dozen eggs, an onion and whatever veges are handy through a food processor then dumping the resulting goop in a dish and baking it until set. DS1 loves pushing the button to blitz it, and picking out a baking dish or pan to bake it in. Tonight it's in a lovely old bundt tin biggrin.gif

I'm trying a new tactic with fussy DS1 to get him to eat his dinner, I buy a selection of meat and veges and he gets to pick out what ingredients I use for each nights dinner. Seems to be working a treat, he ate fresh peas last night without me having to hide them!

My little one is being picky at the moment so made up a platter for us to pick and choose from. Carrots, celery, capscium, home roasted chickpeas. Some homemade mini sausages and quorn sausage rolls.

Poached chicken salad

Put 2 x chicken boobs in a large saucepan with lid, bring to boil, then turn off heat and allow to stand for 40 mins (covered).

Place mixed salad leaves on a platter, top with sliced avocado, celery, cucumber and snow peas. Shred chicken (I usually use 1 chicken boob for the salad and save the other for sandwiches), scatter over salad. Toast a handful of walnuts, then chop roughly and sprinkle over.

Mix up dressing with 2 tbsp natural yoghurt, 2 tbsp mayo, squeeze lemon juice, dash olive oil, salt & pepper, then drizzle over salad.
