what are we (the grown-ups!) going to have for dinner??
H-for-Husband tends to work slightly crazy hours - often not getting home until 7 or 7:30 in the evening...which means that during the week, we don't often manage the "every-one-sit-down-together" type of meal.
I tend to cook dinner for the boys and sit with them, chat about their day and do the general de-brief, before hurling them through a shower and getting them sorted for bed.
This also means that most of the time, we end up coming with two dinners every night - hmmmmm.
Any hoo - the up side of this is that we have quite a array of quick, go-to light meals that are super tasty and great if you need "just a little something" but don't want to run around at 8pm and cook a whole, serious "dinner".
A current favourite is Pan fried Halloumi with Tomato & Lemon.
You slice the Halloumi Cheese and fry in a non-stick pan, turning once, until golden on both sides. Place a slice of cheese on a slice of Tomato, squeeze lemon over the top - hey presto! Super tasty "snacky" dinner!
