    Default Ideas for dinner?

    Anyone got any good meal ideas?!
    Something I can make by getting the ingredients easily from the supermarket!
    And something that doesn't need all day prep!

    My fave for quick and yummy meal:

    Lamb meatballs- So simple, just mix everything in a bowl and roll into balls and pop in the oven: (180 for around 30-40 mins) lamb mince, onion, zucchini, cumin seasoning, lime juice, garlic, egg to bind, salt/pepper.. just add any herbs you like really, making sure you include the cumin as it gives it that distinct flavour- mixed italian herbs, mint, rosemary- most of this I already have in cupboard and just have to by the lamb mince. Takes me around 15 minutes to do and then they cook effortlessly in the oven. I also sprinkle cajun seasoning when turning during cooking. Serve them with Greek yoghurt dipping sauce (add more mint to this & a squeeze of lemon juice & garlic) and a salad- or mash n vegies. Easy peasy!
    (I can't give you measurements as I do it off the top of my head, just add a good amount of everything for nice flavour )

    I made a yummy quick curry last night. Well.. quickish.

    Saute two sliced onions slowly over a low heat with 1/2 tsp salt. Approx 20 minutes. Add 3 tsp coriander ground, 2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp chilli. Fry two minutes. Add your choice of meat - a couple of lamb chops is a cost effective option. Brown the meat, then add 400g tin tomatoes and 1 up water or stock. Add chopped potatoes. Simmer over low heat for one hour.
    Add frozen peas, a swirl of yoghurt and serve. Delish.

    Default Ideas for dinner?

    My easy dinner is roasted cherry tomato pasta - cooks in 1 baking dish and you need a pot for pasta - Toss it together and that's it! Add these ingredients to a baking dish;

    3 punnets cherry tomatoes cut
    2 red chilies diced
    4 cloves garlic squished
    Splash of balsamic vinegar
    Salt and black pepper
    1/2 bunch fresh basil chopped ( keep some to sprinkle over at the end)
    Drizzle with a good amount of olive oil (about 1/2 cup)

    roast on low (140) for 45 mins ( or turn heat up if you want it quicker) then add to cooked pasta and grate loads of Parmesan cheese on top!

    If you want to add a protein I've added prawns, crab, chicken or if you wanted bacon or I add prosciutto to DH,s

    I do similar, except add meatballs to the baking dish and put pesto through the pasta- very yummy!
