Quick, What’s for Dinner Tonight? Link Up #5


How are the holidays treating you?  Do you have more or less time? If you are a first time visitor to this page the idea is to share the pain of the mundane “what’s for dinner tonight” question through a “linky party” where others can put links to their quick & easy mid week recipes and as a reader you get access to a whole raft of blogs and recipe ideas.  That is the plan anyway.

This Roasted Pine Nut Hummus Crusted Chicken by Behind the Blonde took my fancy from last weeks link up, in fact they were all delicious and I will be trying them all out.  Any take your fancy (check back here)?


Winner, winner chicken dinner plus it’s with hummus so will go down a treat here. Great recipe Behind the Blonde

As it’s holidays I’ve been kind of busy (holidaying!) so I’ve pulled this oldie but a goodie out of the archives for my contribution this week.  Dinner is literally done in 15 minutes flat, it’s a no brainer, family pleaser, cheap and cheerful mid week meal…Beef, Broccoli & Green Bean Stir Fry


Sorry photo was taken way back when I first started blogging I’m trying to improve on my styling but you know keeping it real and all that!
Beef, Broccoli & Green Bean Stir Fry – 10 minutes and you are done


  • 3 Tbsp Tamari or soy sauce
  • 500 g beef stir fry strips (this is enough for 2 adults 2 small children so you may need more for bigger eaters)
  • 1 medium broccoli cut into bite sized florets
  • Big handful of green beans, topped, tailed and cut in half
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp Macadamia oil or a light oil of your choice
  • 2 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
  • 1 packet of soba noodles or 2 C rice of your choice


  1. If you have time marinate the beef strips in the tamari sauce for at least an hour or overnight. If you don't have time don't worry just let it marinate while you cut up the veggies and it will still have add flavour.
  2. Heat your oil in a wok or big based fry pan and then add the meat. Brown it lightly cooking for 1 - 2 minutes.
  3. Add veggies and garlic and stir through then add the oyster sauce. Cook for a further 2 - 3 minutes, stirring
  4. Add the noodles or rice to the wok and mix through
  5. You are done!

    That stir fry looks simply (and simple) delicious! My picture for my recipe isn’t that great either. It’s from the olden days but what it lacks in looks, it makes up for in taste! I can’t wait to see what other winner dinners come to the party! That crusted chicken looks amazing, I don’t know how I missed that!
