I was just wondering what everyone cooks at tea times?
At the best of times i struggle what to cook for my own family, always seem to do the same old things...Shephards pie/chili con carne/jacket potato/pasta/spag bol/califlower cheese/sausage & mash etc. It would be nice to hear what everyone else has and maybe get a few new ideas!

Lots of recipe ideas in 'recipes' at the top of the forum! :D

we usually have something like the following:
chicken/beef/pork/lamb dinner
pizza (children add own toppings) garlic bread with jacket pots
fish pie
spag bol and veg
home made fish and chips (oven baked) with peas or beans
shepherds pie

Lots of above

Tuna Pasta bake
Potato Bake
Homemade soups
Sausage casserole

I am not adverse to opening the odd packet of fish fingers/chicken nuggets either!

Pasta 'n' sauce with garlic bread is a real hit with mine - and with me too as it's a very quick and easy tea!

The children's favourite lately has been soup and sandwiches but there are lots of nice recipes in the cooking section

Tandoori chicken is really easy. I mix natural yogurt with a healthy sprinking of Tandoori spice, mix it up and then throw it over cut up chicken breasts. Let it marinate for a bit (I prefer all day) in the fridge and then just cook it under the grill til done. I'm very lazy and just serve it with vegetable pilau rice in a packet (Uncle Ben's, I think, takes 2 minutes in the microwave) and naan, puppodoms, bhajis and samosa. Oh and a bit of shredded lettuce, tomato and cucumber on the side.

Depending upon the brand of Tandoori spice, I will add red food colouring (some already have it, some don't) to achieve a nice, fun colour.
