Life can be frantic; food doesn't have to be.
As a mum juggling family and work, I know how much pressure there is to try to be perfect. But for me, a laid-back lunch shared with family or friends is so much more satisfying than a fussy four-course meal.
It’s not about cooking everything from scratch, either. Life’s too short. And these days, I’m happy to say, there’s just no need. How’s this for a lazy-but-lovely Saturday lunch? One of our cauliflower cheese & broccoli quiches, a bowl of those nice griddled artichokes from the deli counter and a thrown-together salad. Or if you happen to be eating alone, it could be as simple as a chicken pot pie and some quickly steamed greens.
