I’d like to borrow a phrase from a good friend of mine – it’s called “Mum-Spontane”.
It’s a great answer for the kids when they ask what’s for dinner…and you really have no idea what to make, so its going to be pretty spontaneous! Just tell them you’re making Mum-Spontane.
Well I made a Mum-Spontane last night. We were a bit late home so I quickly threw together a veggie pie.
Nothing fancy, but it was quick, delicious, nutritious, healthy and spontaneous (Well, the puff pastry was healthy-ish and certainly delicious!)
All I did was lay a sheet of puff pastry on the base of a pie dish. Then I whisked 5 eggs, added grated carrot, grated zucchini, corn, onion, bacon, and cheese. I added another sheet of puff pastry to the top, popped it in the oven, showered the kids, folded some washing, caught up with hubby, and whooshka – our dinner was ready.
A very streamlined and non-labour intensive meal. Mum-spontane – I love it.
Do you have a favourite saying or phrase that you use on your family? I’d love to hear it.
