Cooking dinner has always been something that takes a lot of time out of my busy and crazy schedule. Cooking can be time consuming and if you are like me and hate it; would rather be playing online poker it is horrible. I have 6 people to organise dinner for daily and thought I would write up some quick meals for poker moms to dish up through the week and on weekends which take little to no time and are crowd pleasers.
MEAL 1 – A Roast Dinner!
Sound complicated? Does it sound time consuming? Think again! It doesn’t when I do it! A roast dinner is by far the quickest meal to prepare and dish up.
Chicken / Pork / Beef/ Lamb roast (one of these)
Frozen Beans / Peas
Frozen Corn Cobs
Broccoli / Cauliflower
Put Chicken In Roasting pan, a little oil and in oven – too easy!
Peel potatoes and cut into 4
Cut pumpkin into large pieces – skin on
Cut carrots into 3 – skin on
Cut the ends off the onions and peel – cut in half
Run broccoli or cauliflower under water and cut into pieces I just cut broccoli into quarters basically)
Put all vegetables in pots on the stove except for pumpkin, carrots and onion. Onions, carrots into the roasting pan. Pumpkin skin down on the rack.
When potatoes are almost ready drop them into deep fryer
Place a cup of gravy powder and water in the microwave when everything is cooked and stir every 20 seconds until thick.
Walla the roast is ready!
I spend maximum15 minutes preparing my roast dinners. They are really the easiest thing that I can think to make! In fact I can play online poker as I do them. I don’t know the person who said roasts were hard. They got it wrong!
