We had a couple of nights back last week without a cellphone and babyphone, but with wonderful -exotic mango lentil soup and tender chermoula beef steak with hummus , a good bottle of wine and beautiful music.
Such evenings are worth gold! Because even if Tom slumbers well in the evening from 19 o'clock in his bed and sleeps until the morning - so really closing time you have a rare little family actually. The housework is waiting, the blog wants to be maintained and the program for the next day has to be planned. On evenings like this, there's only my husband and me and I enjoy this time together scary!
If things need to be done quickly or not, because I'm just too tired from Mama's Day, then I usually cook fast noodle dishes (for me also like the vegetable variant) or just throw everything in the pot, which is currently in the fridge. Yeah, dinner must have been around since Tom was really AWAY fast and easy.
Mango lentil soup and beef steak with hummus from the cookhouse
Surely, you're wondering what should be quick and easy on this menu? At first glance, I also thought: "Phew, that sounds complicated and after hours of work".I tend to cook for a whole football team. Especially when I'm hungry in the kitchen:)
I've just brought an hour for both recipes. Sure, normally I would have the evening too long, BUT I have the shopping and pondering a suitable recipe for our couple's evening saved. So I am very satisfied!
