alwasy used to concocting some sauce of some kind! Im not cooking for masterchef fgs am I ,why do I get me knickers in a twist! Brain cells have been lost in the last 48hrs , due to NO SLEEP [insert symapthy emoticon].

Not good at plain food , so just simply grated cheese on hot pasta and chicken.

melsy, put cooked chicken and cooked pasta in a dish with cooked brocolli and chuck over cheese sauce and throw in oven for 20mins

sprinkle grated cheese over the top too if you like it crispy

you can add a teeny bit cayenne pepper if you like to pep it up

this is a dinner lady recipe with tuna but can be used with chicken too

dead easy

easy cheese sauce

one ounce flour
one ounce butter
four ounces cheese grated
pint of milk

blend the flour and butter in a pot to get a roue (sp)

carefully add the milk stirring to prevent lumps

when blended, add the cheese and stir til thickened a bit

hey presto

Now that sounds good , have frozen broccoli. just need to whip up some cheese sauce , (quite good for dd2 not into her milky), great nailpolish.

coool thank you girls , always get me out of binds and brain blanks.

need to have list of easy things like this , so I have immediate ideas at hand on the wall !!!

I assume dd2 6mths can have the milk as its cooked ?

melsey...yes you can...any nuts really..walnuts make great pesto..
if you want the dish a little creamier just add creme fraiche or a little cream.yummy
