You know you have those days when you get home and just don't want to stand in front of the cooker for the whole night. Well I had one of those nights last night.
Like any busy mum, while I love to give my family a home cooked meal after a busy day, standing by the cooker most of the night is not always high on my list. I do however organise myself enough to have a weekly meal plan and will only shop for what I need for the week. But you know the way things go - have a bad day and all you really want is comfort food, and it to be quick.
My fall back would be eggs or good old beans on toast. As the majority of us had eggs for breakfast or lunch (you can't bet an egg sandwich), an egg for tea might just turn us into an egg!! So I opted for the latter, beans on toast. Now how much quicker can you get than that and as they say beans contain lots of fibre and protein. Now, just to throw a spanner in the works, I wanted more than just beans, what I really wanted was something hearty and scrummy. What does one do when this happens, well I take to the net and to a new food blog I am following called One Pound Meals. The man who is behind this web page is a genius and makes meals out of the humble pound.
I remember from reading one of his Instagram posts a post for Posh Beans on Toast and it hit me, lets try this. After all I had the base of the ingredient and after our Fareshare delivery had a nice bread bloomer to go with it - what more could a hungry girl ask for? I was worried it would take me double the length of time it said to make it, use half my pots and pans, and quite frankly through my patience over the edge. But you know it didn't. Within 20 minutes I was done and we were ready to eat. Everyone was happy, fed and ready to snuggle with full tums. So when you have had one of those days, turn to the Posh Beans on Toast with the humble bloomer.
