Vegetable Fried Rice

Vegetable fried rice is a colourful dish to serve along side many different versions of chicken fingers. The key to getting the rice to crisp up is frying it cold from the fridge.

Creamy Spring Pasta

BBQ up some extra chicken on the weekend and maybe your kids can prepare this Creamy Spring Pasta recipe during the week. Let them pick the green vegetables, peas, asparagus, steamed broccoli or spinach all work well.

Turkey Rolls

Turkey Rolls present well and are actually easy to make. I originally tried a recipe from Fine Cooking and then I took out so many steps (brining, bacon wrapping and browning) that I had to call them "Rolls" instead of "Roulades." In the end the turkey rolls are so much easier and taste superior. This recipe makes two rolls so it is easy to make with a friend or make two and freeze one or bake them both with company. The mushroom and shallot sauce is optional but worth the effort.

Greek Salad

Ever tried salad in a jar for lunch? Greek salad is perfect for a jar. While you are preparing your dinner prepare a small salad for lunch tomorrow. In a 2 cup jar add 2 tablespoons of dressing, then some feta cheese, olives, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers up to the top so there is as little space as possible before you add the lid. Refrigerate until lunchtime.
