I love to eat and I really enjoy cooking and coming up with new exciting things to excite my taste buds.
Often however dinner is a rush so a typical dinner would be,
Steak or chicken with herbs or spiced and served with salad. My salads are made up of mixed lettuce leaves and then I add some sliced red capsicum, cucumber, red onion, snowpeas and some sprouts and cherry tomatoes. I dress them with olive oil and they taste great. I also add herbs like corriander or basil if i've got it.
One thing I do is i make a large salad - enough for 6 people. That way it's ready to take to work or if i'm out shopping. I don't dress it until about to eat it. That way it will last for up to 4-5 days (if there's any left - also i use cherry tomatoes because you if you don't cut them they will not make the salad mushy)
This is one of my favourite stand by meals.
Re meat, i am not too adventurous, or maybe i'm impatient so i like to have something easy. I often use rubs. What's a rub you ask. To make a rub use a 1/2 cup of olive oil and add your favourite seasoning. Rub it onto both sides of the meat and let it sit for 10 - 30 mins. Easy. Store it in a jar if there is any left over. You can make pepper rubs, spicy rubs etc.
Any of the sommersize books are worth getting. She has some great recipies in there. Dinahb
