I hate tea time too, am doing pasta and garlic bread i think, quick and easy and usually gets eaten for a change.

Thanks. It's pasta for kids too then. What do you normally have with yours. My kids are a bit fussy when it comes to pasta sauces and usually just have grated cheese.

dont know what to do my lot......i was a bad bad mummy.....they had mcdonalds at dinner time

SPARKLER1 Wed 16-Feb-05 16:36:38

titania - you're not a bad mummy. I am hovering over the idea of going to the chippy!!! yum yum and I'm on a diet

I usually get a pasta bake sauce and do it with that.

They adore the garlic bread.

A quick fave of mine is noodles, a dash of a tomato based pasta sauce, and I chuck in any veg I've got and some tiger prawns. Goes down very well in our house.

My kids love a tin of meatballs with their pasta, makes a change from sauce and cheese.

dd2 will prefer cheesy sauce with pasta, the bigger ones and us adults like either scala or good ol' lloyd grossman tomato based sauces. handful of veggies in it too, nice baked in oven -or finished in oven with breadcrumbs and cheese on the top - which goes all crunchy...mmmmmmmmmm
we're having stir fry i think after BAD lunch at chip shop!

DS had pasta with pesto, sausages, red pepper and fried mushrooms! Strange concoction but he loved it. Yoghurt for pudding

We're having roast chicken & taking leftovers to beach for picnic tomorrow.

MarsLady Wed 16-Feb-05 17:17:09

Roast chicken, good idea, then the DTs can have fruity, creamy chicken for lunch tomorrow. Must cook.

SPARKLER1 Wed 16-Feb-05 17:20:11

milliways - to the beach? brrrrrrrrrrrrr! freezing!

lunavix Wed 16-Feb-05 17:21:05


we have no food. oh why doesn't mcdonalds deliver in our area yet!!!

SPARKLER1 Wed 16-Feb-05 17:21:18

Right have decided - dds are having pasta, fish fingers and a boiled egg on the side - they love those! Bit of a mix and match but as long as they eat something I don't care. Dh is working late tonight so might be naughty and get him to pick something up for us on his way home.

Slinky Wed 16-Feb-05 17:25:48

Ours is cooking as I type - really fancied mashed potato tonight (have been obsessing about it since lunch time ), so me and the kids are having sausages, mash, and peas (plus corn on the cobs for me and DD1).

DH is working late tonight, so he grabbed something at lunchtime, and will have a toasted sandwich when he gets in.

DH and I are having tuna and borlotti beans with rice which is our favourite. Might go and start cooking it now. Yummy

Beach is great like this - can take the dog, walk for miles, feed the seagulls & end up at Harry Ramsdens - tomorrows tea sorted

Tommy Wed 16-Feb-05 17:30:45

Mine are currently sat in front of the telly with a sandwich - I get the bad Mummy award!

SPARKLER1 Wed 16-Feb-05 17:38:40

I do that sometimes too Tommy. I'm just happy that they are eating something at tea time. I can stand by the cooker for half and hour to an hour cooking them something special and they waste the lot or I can make them a cold tea (sandwiches etc) and they clear the plate.

collision Wed 16-Feb-05 17:40:43

I used to love picnics in front of the TV...sandwiches, cucumber and carrots, crisps, biscuits and cake.....hardly any effort at all. Tea is sorted for ds tomorrow!!
