I desperately don't want to cook today. Any tips for a healthy dinner which takes ten minutes?

Salad, bread, ham, cheese, pate, houmous, locusts.

omelette and sald
baked potatoes in microwave with nutrious filling like tuna and salad

Good suggestions. I'll have to go for the stir fry tarantula due to available ingredients but I still consider that to be cooking really.

don't you have any left over roast? Bit a salad, Bob's your uncle and Fanny's your aunt!

Tuna pasta salad:
couple of tins of tuna
chop red/green peppers
cherry toms
black olives
boil up some pasta
toss in some pesto sauce (ready made from supermarket of course)
and finely grate zest of lemon

WideWebWitch Mon 11-Jul-05 16:35:10

Chip shop. Bugger healthy for once. (You can always take the batter off your fish).

jessicaandbumpsmummy Mon 11-Jul-05 16:36:48

im going for pizza delivery... too hot to cook!

Janh Mon 11-Jul-05 16:37:05

Left-over roast, mars? You mean you had one yesterday in this heat?

Spidey's having stir fry tarantula - how appropriate <shudder>

MrsDoolittle Mon 11-Jul-05 16:37:56

locusts hunkermunker?

WideWebWitch Mon 11-Jul-05 16:38:31

I know, I read the locusts and wondered if she put that in just to see if we were paying attention. Do you think?

spidermama Mon 11-Jul-05 16:38:58

Fefi. Eureka! Sounds fab. Thanks.

Was v. tempted to go to chippie too jahn but not with all 4 kids.

expatinscotland Mon 11-Jul-05 16:39:06

Pizza Hut.

Janh Mon 11-Jul-05 16:39:41

I assumed it was either another whimsical trifle or else a ref to the weather.

(Or else she keeps some in her cupboard for moments like this. Choc. coated probably.)

MrsDoolittle Mon 11-Jul-05 16:40:15

Can't imagine a roast mars being healthy either.

Sounds about right We spiders have no hesitation in being cannibals.
