Great ideas for family dinners
You’ve made a new dinner recipe and the family absolutely loves it. Great work! Now, it’s become the same dinner you have every – single – Wednesday night. Don’t get us wrong, having some routine is a great way to get ahead, and save time especially when you’ve a family to feed. It also prevents the “what’s for dinner” daily question which can wear you down.
However, now the applause is over and it’s week 15 of cooking the same Wednesday night meal. Sure everyone is still enjoying the recipe, but you’ve made it so often the pleasure of making it is all but gone. But how can you score those points again – the happy faces, second helping requests … it’s your very own Olympic stage when you’ve managed to make everyone at the table satisfied.
This is where a Master Recipe and the trick of serving it different ways becomes your best friend; here’s how:
- You can still have your meal plan and save time by making a big batch of the Master Recipe by doubling or even tripling the original recipe, and then save portions and freeze to use in other meals;
- Your family will continue to enjoy the recipe they originally loved, and you’ll enjoy the option to cook and serve it different ways;
- Your family will think you’re a kitchen super-star (we already know you are 😉 ) when you serve up the same Master Recipe that they love, but in a different way that keeps cooking interesting for you and variety for everyone else; and
- If the team love the Master Recipe, the risk rejecting the new serving idea is minimised.
