School’s going back, work is hotting up and the last thing you feel like doing is cooking. Keep the relaxed summer vibe going with easy back-to-work dinners.
Simple salads, satisfying pastas and fast frittatas should be your go-to for family meals. Pizzas are also the perfect remedy for that back-to-school funk.
How to make dinnertime easier
• Make sure you have some staples in the cupboard and fridge that can feature across a number of meals, think dried pasta, tomato passata, tinned tomatoes, a bag of baby spinach or mixed leaves, a tub of ricotta, parmesan or shredded cheese
• Get buy in from your kids on what’s on the menu for the next couple of days to stop the “what’s for dinner?” whinge
• Prep vegies on the weekend and keep in an airtight container in the fridge ready to cook with.
• Keep it simple and stick to what you know everyone wants to eat.
