I have a group of friends that I get to­gether with ev­ery once in a while, and the last time we all met, ev­ery­one pre­ferred to gather at a lo­cal restau­rant in­stead of one our homes like we nor­mally do. When I asked them why, they an­swered that af­ter the hol­i­days they were tired of host­ing at home.

Many times when we host meals in our home, we ex­pend ex­tra­or­di­nary amounts of en­ergy and end up ter­ri­bly ex­hausted by the end of the evening. So this week, I’m pro­vid­ing my read­ers with five sim­ple recipes made from in­gre­di­ents we all have on hand that don’t re­quire too much ef­fort.

The first dish is a ro­bust veg­e­tar­ian bean soup. All you have to do is add all the in­gre­di­ents and let it cook all by it­self. The sec­ond recipe is for green beans with mint and gar­lic, and the third one is sliced pota­toes with herbs. The main dish is a rump roast with stir-fried veg­eta­bles. Of course, no meal would be com­plete without some­thing sweet, and all you have to do for the recipe be­low is buy choco­late cups (and store them in a cool, dry place) or pre­pared mini-tarte pie crusts. Just cut up some sea­sonal fruit, and whip up some cream.

These short, easy recipes will help you host in style, but without work­ing too hard or ex­haust­ing your­self.
