    Default Dinners for my husband.

    Hey guys,

    Im just after some dinner suggestions for my husband. Im starting back at work this week doing night shifts, so hubby will be in charge of feeding the family and the night time routine. I know how hard it is to feed, bath and bed two little kids on my own and keep the house in order, so I want to make at least the dinner part as easy as possible for him so he doesn't have to cook or have much of a clean up.

    So I'm after one dish/pot ideas that I can prepare during the day, so all hubby has to do when he gets home from work is serve it. So far i have a lasagne recipe and a beef casserole.

    Any ideas? TIA x

    Slow cooker meals I find are the best for that. Soups, sausage hot pot, Spag Bol, nachos, even have a stir fry going in there.

    Last night I made a chicken,leek and mushroom pie and with the leftover filling i cut up puff pastry and put the dilling in them to make small pasties. So when i dont want to cook i put them in the oven 25 min with some vegies. Very easy

    Some of my easy go to's are: spaghetti, chorizo pasta, anything to go in a slow cooker.

    I agree with slow cooker. Also precut veg etc for stir fry is quick amd easy. Pasta bake can be premade and then it can just be put in the oven to finish off.

    Soup - chicken and veggie, chicken and corn , lentil and veggie

    Curry - butter chicken or Penang and rice (just needs to re heat )

    Any kind of pasta is easy to re heat

    Fish and veggie bake (you can prep veggies and fish and he just puts tray in oven to cook for 30 mins)

    Pizza - you can have made and ready in fridge and he just cooks

    Kebabs - falafel, lamb or chicken - you can pre cook , make salads and he can wrap and toast them at dinner time

    Chicken or eggplant parmigiana. You can prepare and he just needs to cook in oven

    Chicken wings and roast veggies

    If using a slow cooker, pre make dump bags on a weekend and freeze and all you need to do is defrost in fridge night before and put into sc the next morning. It's all prepared so no work the night before.
