    I have an extremely fussy husband that makes dinner so hard, recently though I have been ignoring his fussiness and trying to serve a bigger variety of meals. This week it has been / will be;
    roast chicken thighs with sweet potato mash, peas, carrot and corn and roast pumpkin.
    taco cups made from a heart healthy recipe and salad.
    homemade chicken Parma and veggies.
    honey and garlic pork and veg.
    bacon, broccoli and leek flan.
    chicken biryani with steamed broccolini.
    homemade pizzas.

    Sure. I just cook spiral pasta or fettuchini (around 400-500gms). I then dice some chicken thigh fillets (around 4) some bacon (maybe 3-4 long rashers) and fry it till the bacon is brown and crispy and the chicken is cooked. I then mix that with the drained pasta, add a small bag of pine nuts, and a couple of tablespoons of pesto (currently just using the jar variety till my basil grows and I can make my own). Then, once that is mixed and the pesto coats everything I add a handful of parmesan cheese (or grated tasty or mozzarella of no parmesan) and give it another stir. Done! Great with salad for a hot day meal. I didn't work off a recipe, I have just sorta made it up so that's why the amounts are so vague.

    Some of our favorites:

    http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=4927.0 But I make it mainly on the stove as don't like thermomix cooked meat taste, easy without a thermo machine.

    http://www.recipecommunity.com.au/re...-chicken/24930 Same with this one, I think it tastes better on the stove.


    http://www.bestrecipes.com.au/recipe...icken-L58.html. This one is amazing, we love it, can't recommend it enough.

    http://beafunmum.com/2011/08/slow-co...et-curry-beef/


    Just a few dishes different from the standard ones that I've cooked a number of times and they are easy and delicious.

    We don't have regular meals as such. I meal plan from the variety of cookbooks we have and I always try and make something new. This week we're having
    Crispy skinned salmon with mash, beans and carrots with a dressing of red wine vinegar, mustard, olive oil and sugar,
    Japanese pork stir fry with udon noodles
    Chumchirri lamb chops with sweet potato wedges and peas
    Pan fried sea perch with Asian coleslaw (wombok, radish, spring onion, carrot and snow pea sprouts) with an Asian dressing
    Prawn, rocket, prosciutto, avocado and roasted tomato salad
    Warm pasta salad with roasted pumpkin, goats cheese, rocket and pine nuts
