At the mo all 3 kids have school dinners, which is great but I am getting stuck on what to give them for tea.

I like them to still have something cooked, or warm at least, and ideally for it to include veg, as although dd1&2 are good at including veg in their school meal, ds isn't.

I'm doing tuna pasta bake tonight, which always goes down well, but other than omlette and beans on toast, I am getting stuck.

Scrambled eggs on toast
Cauliflower & broccoli cheese?
Jacket potatoes (cook in microwave,then bung in oven for 10 mins if you want to crisp them up)

Ahhh cauliflower cheese, thats a good one, what do I put with it though ?

Scrambled eggs they have alot, but jacket pots less so as they aren't overly keen.

Macaroni cheese with lardons and hard boiled eggs. Homemade soup and rolls (bung in loads of veg). Muffin pzzas (get them to do their own toppings).

spag bol is very quick to prepare.

I did do homemade veg soup a few weeks ago, and it was nice, but seemed very faffy for what I actually got at the end.

Oh yes spag bol, can do that in slow cooker too, so less hassle.
