…………..Christmas Day will be just about over.
This single day may be fun, joyous, tedious or whatever you choose to make it. You may have shopped, cooked, decorated and planned for weeks or even months. Was it worth it?
My approach to Christmas has become more low-key as the years go by.
In the meantime, life goes on and there is still washing and ironing to do as well as meals to prepare. Tonight’s dinner is an example of my ‘speed cooking’ on weeknights after a full day at work.
I made Broccoli with Tuna Sauce which is one of my own adaptations of a recipe I saw in a magazine about 30 years ago. There are no real quantities – just what seems reasonable.
Fry some diced onion, capsicum and a bit of Tabasco sauce. Add a can of crushed tomatoes and 1/2 large can of tuna (shredded). Simmer and reduce the liquid a little. Lightly steam a head of broccoli broken into florets. Drain any excess liquid from the broccoli then pour the tuna sauce over it. Top with grated cheese and breadcrumbs and crisp under the griller. I use a mixture of almond meal and flaxseed meal for a gluten-free option.
This meal took 20 minutes from starting the preparation until I served it.
