Cassie Best finds solutions for com­mon meal­time strug­gles

Wel­come to this new fea­ture, where I’ll of­fer up an easy recipe and some tips and tricks to help make your meal­times less stress­ful. As a work­ing mum with a tod­dler, I know how tricky it is to get some­thing quick and healthy on the table af­ter a hard day at work, or out with the kids. Get­ting them to eat the dinner you’ve lov­ingly (or as is more of­ten the case, hap­haz­ardly) cooked, is another bat­tle al­to­gether. But when it all works out, dinner’s on the table, and they’re tuck­ing in en­thu­si­as­ti­cally, there’s no bet­ter feel­ing.

the dilemma

With af­ter-school clubs, play dates and work com­mit­ments, we all end up eat­ing at dif­fer­ent times. How can I avoid cook­ing three sep­a­rate meals?

the so­lu­tion

Make a one-pot to suit all. The main el­e­ment of this recipe, the smoky BBQ pork, can sit hap­pily on your hob for a few hours, ready for dinner when­ever your clan needs it. It’s eas­ily adapted to suit ev­ery­one’s tastes and can be made and frozen ahead, too.
