I’ve been really busy at work the last few days, and I dare say I will be again tomorrow, so tonight we just had an easy dinner. I watched some DVD episodes of one of my favourite tv shows, while I did some Pilates and yoga… While dinner was in the oven.
This week was all about getting back into a routine, and being organised again. I should really get back to the gym, but for the moment I feel I’ve been getting just as much from my workouts at home… I’ve even considered letting go of my gym membership, but I really do enjoy the classes, and is don’t really do much cardio outside the gym. After all I can’t go for a run because it hurts my knees too much.
So tonight was an easy night. My partner wanted steak and I was opting for chicken kebabs and a warm veggie salad, so I improvised. He had steak, chicken kebabs and grilled onion and tomato while I had kebabs and a warm veggie salad. Which inspired me to prepare lunch for work… So tomorrow I’m having a salad including two eggs I poached in the thermomix for the first time.
They may not be that pretty, but it was a lot easier than I thought it would be, and the best part was I could multitask which is what I love about my thermie.
If you’re looking for cost effective easy dinners, I like anything that can go into a machine and that I can walk away from. Either the oven or the thermomix these days. Yesterday it was tomato soup, shaslicks and homemade turkish bread for my partner, I just had the shaslicks.
Even slow cooker or pre-made salads are an easy option. During the week I like to have quick preparation meals or I find most of my evening is spent either cooking dinner or cleaning up the kitchen. Mostly I like making something new, but it’s also convenient to have something in the freezer ready to go, this week my stand-by meal is pumpkin soup. Mostly it’s come in handy for work dinners and lunches.
