When I was on mat leave with Jude, I remember suddenly realizing something pretty fundamental.
"They are depending me."
A vast, vague notion perhaps, but nonetheless I found a starting point: Learning To Cook. Or, as I also like to put it "Cook Something They Will Eat", otherwise known as "Cook Something That Doesn't Leave You All With a Persistent Stomach Ache". Yesss.
Enter some internet research and eventually, the book "How To Feed a Family".
I've tried most of the recipes and all are no-fail and amazing. You can find more recipes and learn more about them here. Proud too to see that they reside in Canada! Yay, happy shower of red maple leaves!
Of all the pages in my book, the ones with most splatters and dog-earedness are showcasing:
-- Risotto, Spinach and Kale Cakes (make ahead and freeze for lunches and snacks)
-- Wagamama Cookies (you won't have any left to freeze, trust me)
-- Orange Chocolate Mini Muffins (ditto)
-- Mini Meatloaves (I hide spinach in mine and now only you and me know that)
