Post-holiday food

Post-holiday blues? Try these quick and easy meals to ease back into the real world.

28 Apr 2011

It’s been a fabulous Easter hols with chocolate covered days and some rainy weather to forge compulsory seconds at each steaming meal.

We ate, drank and cooked and ate some more. The kids ran around on Easter bunny energy and went to sleep with sticky fingers and marshmallow dreams.

It was wonderful, but I feel that post-holiday fatigue, a little tight in the pants and no more roast potatoes please!

It’s time for some nummy healthy food filled with comforting nutrition and things that don’t require lard or a slow-roast.

I’m thinking thick, bubbling soups and colourful roasted veggies. Perhaps some easy one dish wonders for the whole family and quickie pastas.

Try these deliciously simple recipes to give you a break on your holidays.

And for pud, what could be more delicious than shortbread fingers dipped in Nutella?
