hi everyone, summer in the southern hemisphere is about to begin- and i have a 2 month gig- looking after my cousin's kids (girl 4 and boy
. so i'll be living with them and preparing 3 meals a day.
i've got breakfast and lunch covered, but i'm going to need ideas for some family dinners- heres the criteria:
-the meals have to appeal to 3 relatively food-adventurous adults and 2 kids with more conservative tastes
-i dont want to make 2 completely separate meals, so if there was a way to make something and tone down part of it for the kids, that would be good
-i'm pretty much a vegetarian, so its best if meat can be omitted from my portion (but fish is fine)
-its going to be summer, so i dont want to spend hours in a hot kitchen
-also, recipes which use leftovers / make good left overs will be awarded bonus points
thats pretty specific, so i'm asking you all- especially the moms and dads- what are your familys' favourite meals? the sure-fire crowd pleasers? the best 'this-only-took-30 minutes-but-it-tastes-like-2 hours' meals?
all suggestions will be gratefully received
