Here are a couple things that are so quick and easy to make you'd think they were bad for you:


A bunch of frozen peas
A ball of fresh mozzarella
Colman's mint sauce*

Stick at least a cup of frozen peas in the microwave for no more than two minutes, stir, then one minute at a time, stirring between, until they are hot and bright green. Once they start turning olive-colour they're overcooked.

Whilst microwaving, cut up your mozarella into cubes. If you're only making a side portion of peas, half a ball will do.

Put the mozarella in with the peas, add a nice dollop of mint sauce, and stir. LUNCH: SORTED. I can generally get this made and eaten and dishes washed in 15 minutes; good healthy filling lunch for busy days.

*I am not usually a name-brand type person, but Colman's is noticeably better than the Sainsbury's own brand, so I will fork over for it


1 kiwifruit
3-4 ginger biscuits
plain yoghurt

Cut your kiwi in bite-size pieces into a bowl, then break up your ginger nuts and add those. Pour as much yoghurt over as you think makes a nice balance between liquid and solid. Let sit for a minute or so to soften up the biscuit pieces, stir, and snaffle.

And you should definitely have enough ginger biscuits around ... ;)

Thing I figured out that's served for dinner twice this week so far:

4-5 little yellow potatoes
1/2 a zucchini (or squash)

Cut up and boil potatoes till sufficiently soft; transfer to container. Cut raw zucchini in round pieces, cut said pieces in fourths, put into potatoes and stir. Add a very little butter if you wish, poss. also rosemary, and nom. Goes well with a roll if you have them around.

(The best bit is that you can boil the potatoes while doing other stuff - as long as you stay in the same room or watch the time, to avoid a repeat of a certain Candied Orange Peel Situation.)

Just put the zucchini in raw - it maintains crunchiness that way.

'Orange Peel' as a political reference falls apart when you consider that candied orange peel is a) sweet and b) a scurvy preventative, whereas the politician in question is the exact opposite on both counts ...
