Miraculous 20 minute meal that is healthy, your kids will like – and its cheap!
I understand the frustration. You’ve just gotten home from work, your 308 children have 1,948,474 questions/problems/homework sheets, you can’t get the cork out of the wine, and dinner: the huge, evil, monstrous task of cooking something that your children will eat, doesn’t cost the earth, is quick, easy, healthy, and most important worthy of a facebook photo is still ahead of you.
As I am the absolute epitome of motherhood and domesticity (I’ve only misplaced 3 of my children, and the police brought them back almost straight away) I can very easily put a delicious nutritious meal on the table, one that at least one of my little piggies will pick at.

Yesterday I found a small foil miso soup wrapper in the teenagers room… come to think of it, he must have a kettle hidden somewhere to boil water for it too. His room is quite often very vaporous and exotic smelling.
I digress again… back to the modern miracle of cheap, easy, nutritious, tasty and instaworthy food.
Every kid loves a burger so we will jazz one up. It will be healthy, delicious and nice on the eyes.
Most supermarkets nowadays have a high fibre/low GI bread roll, and if you’re lucky they’ll cover them in seeds and grains – that’ll piss off the paleo kid, and will look super pretty on pinterest at the same time! oh yeah, and it’s healthy.
