Well hello there! I’m back again with some more receipe selections to take the argh! what do I cook for dinner!??? out of dinner time.
What’s that I hear? The sound of rumbling tummies? Well then, let’s not delay this any further then….
Cranberry roast chicken and sweet potatoes
This dish is so quick and tasty and has a lovely short ingredient list meaning you can get it ready in 10 minutes or under. And because it includes the sweet potatoes, you can literally serve it with a side of peas and ta-dah!
See the recipe here on the Ocean Spray website
Oven baked cod with pesto crust
I am a huge pesto lover, mainly for the fact that it can turn any dish from hero to zero in an instant. It’s also a fab way of jazzing up a fish dish, much like this one. Serve with a side of sweet potato and butternut squash mash – delish – and for a family size serving simply double the quantities stated.

For some reason, paella conjures up images of someone slaving over a massive paella pan for hours but actually it can be a really fuss free family meal to make. For fussy eaters, with this recipe you can either take out the prawns entirely, or swap with a more kiddy acceptable substitute like salmon or cod.

Deluxe turkey burger
Turkey often gets overlooked other than Christmas but is well worth including in your weekly shop as it’s cost effective and a really healthy meat to consume. And yes – it can tend to get drive so one of the best ways to deliver turkey is in juicy burger form for a perfect mid week treat.
Prepare to lick your lips for a quick and delicious Friday treat…super easy to make, moist and full of lip smacking deliciousness, it can only be barbecue chicken. Serve with some home made sweet potato wedges and corn on the cob to top off that Southern-style feel.

Slow cooker lasagna
Yes it’s the weekend again and it’s time to bust out the slow cooker. Getting this ready on a Saturday morning and letting the slow cooker do the rest of the work when you’re home in time for tea – you’ll be thanking your slow cooker forever!

Chicken & potato fricassee
Another quick dish to knock up and one that tastes like you’ve put a lot more work into it than you actually did thanks to the creaminess of it all! The perfect Sunday comfort dish.
Oh and if you missed the last round up you might want to pop over to my last family dinner post.
