Stuffed baked tomatoes served with cauliflower, broccoli and new potatoes. Yum.
I was seriously lacking culinary inspiration this afternoon, and a quick peek in the freezer confirmed that my options for dinner would be mince, mince or mince. So boring, I’m snoring. So I did what any modern mama would do. I asked the twitterverse for help.
I waited, and waited (for like two whole minutes), until finally an answer came, and it was a great one. Relieved, I tweeted: Just when I was thinking all my peeps must be “above” mince, @MitzyG saves the day Thanks!!!
After that comment the tweets came thick and fast. It seemed everyone was keen to participate in the mince conversation. Other mums either wanted to share a favourite recipe that works with their kids, or wanted a little inspiration for the mince sitting in their own freezers! In the end I decided to cook stuffed tomatoes as MitzyG first suggested. I will now forevermore consider her, affectionately, Mitzy the Mince Maven.
If you’re stuck for a meal idea this week, here are some of the other great family-friendly suggestions my followers recommended:
@mumspace – mini burgers (cut shapes out of bread with cookie cutters)
@gemisht – rissoles, tacos, meat pie, shepherds pie
@AngelaPinjuh – hamburgers
@onetiredmum – spaghetti and meatballs
@mummifiedx5 – meaty nachos
@OliversMummyRed – meatballs in tomato with rice
@mummytime – spaghetti bol
@MitzyG – stuffed zucchini/peppers/tomatoes, hamburger, quiche or frittata!
