Mediterranean Chicken Bake

If you really want your kids to eat their vegetables, give them something worth eating.

This super speedy, satisfying soup can be ready to eat in less than 15 minutes.
If you’ve already made my super tender twice cooked Sticky Pork, you should have some of that beautiful strained broth in your freezer, perfect for this soup. If not, chicken stock is yummy too.

Sticky Ginger Pork

It's Sticky, it's sweet and it's simple to make. Don't let the fact that this sticky pork recipe is twice cooked put you off, the effort from you is minimal and the result is delicious. It's also a great way to coax the kids into eating their veggies, that sweet sticky coating will be hard to resist.
Feel free to use cheaper cuts of pork, because you're starting off with a slow cook, the meat will tenderise nicely.  Any vegetables can be added, my preferences are carrot, capsicum, beans, spring onion and broccoli but it always depends on what's on hand at the time.

Simple Massaman Curry

I love a good massaman curry. Unfortunately, the recipe I’ve use in the past has 20 separate ingredients and is a bit fiddly and time consuming. Worth every minute, I can assure you of that, but when I’m wrestling my hyperactive snotballs beautiful children through that final stretch of the day, I struggle to keep track of complex recipes (even when I’m the one who wrote it) with all the commotion and constant interruptions.
I miss cooking without a child swinging from my arm and another tipping ingredients all over the bench!
Thankfully, I’ve found a solution. It's not the 5 star, gourmet dish I’d like it to be but it’s better than the take away Thai up the road and a whole lot cheaper. Notes: *My kids seem to enjoy a bit of spice but if you prefer a milder curry, use massaman curry paste instead with half the peanut butter. **Need NUT FREE? Peanuts can be substituted with cashews or left out altogether. Tahini or peanut butter substitute could be used.
