There's a show with Jamie Oliver on the Food Network called "Meals in Minutes" and the whole premise is that you can cook an entire meal (main, vegetable, beverage, salad and dessert) in 30 minutes. It's fresh, healthy and delicious. The food I've tried so far has been restaurant quality. I haven't quite got it all done in 30 minutes yet but usually I'm done at the 45 minute mark. My knife skills aren't quite up to Jamie's and I keep having to reread the book. I just need someone to stand there and read the book to me.
Did you know that you don't have to peel a butternut squash or that you can eat radish leaves? Neither did I and I've been into cooking for a long time!
Here's the book and a peek inside:
Last night I made the green curry dinner done with chicken thighs. I can honestly say it's the best chicken I've ever eaten. My daughter joined me for dinner too and loved the meal. DD is gluten and lactose intolerant and there are many meals that are fine for her to eat.
Here are some photos of last night's meal.
