Not a lot in the house, but got basics... need something very easy to feed DD for dinner so I can have a bath and cook properly later for me n Boy.

Not beans on toast again

Have you got any macaroni? You could make macaroni cheese.

Scrambled eggs on toast or eggy bread?

Have you got the basics to do a tomato pasta?

Have you got potatoes? You could cut them into wedges and bake in oven for 35 mins to make big chips she can dip in ketchup.

Sometimes I do what the kids called 'picnic tea' so I bung together on a plate all bits and pieces I have - crackers with philadelphi on, sandwiches, cubes of cheese, cubes of apple, raisins, banana, breadsticks, hula hoops....whatever you have in. Then follow it with yoghurt or as a treat if you are feeling very lazy - choc buttons!

OR - you could do a banana sliced down the middle with choc buttons in and bake in foil in the oven! Go on, let her eat crap for tea!

Cheese on toast soldiers to dip in ketchup!

You can see how healthy we are in our house - these are only my lazy options you understand!

JJ n I made scrambled eggs for lunch....he's quite a good helper.

Not that he liked it tho....ended up with beans on toast again!!!!

Hows about Pasta tho, she liked it round my house!

I would do poached egg on toast or pasta with some butter and parmesan stirred in at the end.

I know, I don't know why I can never think what to make!!!

My lazy option is pasta and butter......they all love it and when I am having to tempt JJ into eating his gluten free stuff (which he refuses if he thinks he is having different to the others) he thinks he is having the same and so tucks right in.

They then have chopped fruit for pud which gives them their vit C and eases my guilt.

B loves apple pieces and raisins!!!

Mine are having pizza tonight....apparently they think pizza is a monday treat now....think I've done it a tad too often.

So what do you do Psycho? Literally just cook pasta and melt butter into it?? Does it taste of anything?!

Just thinking it's a nice easy one to add to my repertoire if they like it!

psychomum5 Mon 18-Apr-05 16:53:57

Yup......cook n drain pasta and then while still in the hot pan (helps the butter melt quicker) stir the butter in. Needs quite a bit tho. For pasta for four (JJ has his own stuff) I use a quarter to a third of a pack.

And yes, quite tasty.

If they like tuna you can chuck that in too....or ham/cooked pea's, sweetcorn, sausages/tinned salmon.

Thanks Psychomum - I'm going to try it now!

psychomum5 Mon 18-Apr-05 16:56:55

You're welcome

Sory - never got back to you all.

Gave her piriton, and she pretty much passed out, and ended up with just a bottle and bed

Oodles of ideas for next time though!
