Lazy food.

by Veronica on August 9, 2010

We’ve been eating a lot of lazy food lately. Whether that’s because I keep forgetting to get meat out of the freezer, or because of a distinct lack of energy on my part, I’m not sure.

See, the end of winter gets to me, badly. It’s cold still, nothing is growing properly, my garden looks desolate due to not planting a proper winter crop and meals? really? I’ve got to cook them for the family? dammit.

Lazy meals are, for me, things I can throw together in half an hour or less, with no preparation.

Tomato pasta.

Tuna Mornay.

Rice and vegetables.

Cheesy pasta.

All the things I never bother to photograph because really, who wants to see it?

And the meals are a little bit comfort food-y too, boiled potatoes with cheese and garlic butter, plain risotto (although the last risotto I made went cold, because Isaac broke his arm while I was stirring it. Sigh) and pasta with butter and cheese.

Not the healthiest meals exactly, but I console myself with making everything from scratch, so at least it seems healthier.

I’m craving freshly picked greens and stirfry with chicken and garden veg. Craving fresh tomato salsa, made with my own tomatoes. Dreaming of peas and beans and chinese cabbage and butter.

Yep. I think winter is getting to me.

Nothing wrong with lazy food. I’m a big fan of cauliflower cheese and mashed potato with thick gravy. Yum yum.

My favourite lazy food is green soup! It consists of anything and everything green or white, sauteed in a little butter then simmered for 20 mins or so before a quick smash with the potato masher. Serve with thick slices of buttered bread or large toasted cheese croutons. Yum yum!
