Yummy! (Well, not so much the stale bread option)!!
My toddler came home with some \"baking\" this afternoon from nursery. It had to go in inverted comma's as it was kind of a cake mixture, held together by snot, germs from 15 different dirty hands and a tiny amount of playdoh that had accidentally got into the mixture. And he ate it! I was so grossed out, but he enjoyed it, so it will at least have boosted his immune system no end.
So, maybe there's a new recipe?!! Mmm, yummy, enjoy!!!
OK, here's a really simple, very nutritious 15 min meal for one. This should deliver most of your five a day.
Soften a chopped small onion in a little oil in a large saucepan Add a packet of fresh spinach (chopped if u want), soften the spinach for a few minutes, whilst mixing. Grate some cheddar Prepare 2 pieces of toast Serve the onion and spinach onto the toast, cheddar on top, let it melt a bit.....
The alternative for five a day is half a bottle of wine - it's made from grapes!

I find it very difficult to cook. I used to run a big household with lots of friends coming for dinner at least twice a week. Cooking for one is not really fun
ok this threads gone quiet and with lots of newbies who knows might get some new receips..

Kalamari, i use your spinach and onion recipe, but as a meal, cook pasta and seasoned tomatoes, and add. In a bowl of course, not on toast! Yummi!!
And of course the grapes! Talking of which, how about strawberries and champers, even better:P Well fizzy plonk anyway:woohoo:
Which reminds me of a day at the races many years ago, I often think of that day when I look to see who is in chat, When I scroll down the members online, I can almost hear the load speaker calling out the horses!! Sorry, my warped sense of humour with all the funny names we use.
And its Kalamari in the lead, and Joy fell at the first hurdle, iknowknow over the fence, Oh, what a shame dadinamillion and daisy040 refusing to jump.....
I can empathise still alive as i used to cook lots too However this a nutritious meal I have found since being on the divorce diet.
Remove one slice of granary bread ( 2 on a good day) from freezer.
Toast till golden
spread with butter
then spread with healthy low fat scrummy Marmite.
Follow up with an apple , Orange or fruit of your choice.
If you don't bother with a plate your only left with a knife to wash, and it wont break the bank either.
