LYNDA LOVES Frozen chopped spinach, by Sainsbury’s (£1.50): “I’ve always got some in my freezer. It’s brilliant for pasta – you don’t even need to defrost it. Just chuck it straight in the pan with your other sauce ingredients.” JJoouurrnnaall 09 Problem: Lucy’s always on the go – and always seems to be hungry. Sorted: Try our tasty snacks that are perfect for grazing! Fruit kebabs are a firm favourite at Lynda’s house – especially in summer when British strawberries are in season. “For a treat, I make a dip using Milk chocolate spread, by Sainsbury’s (£1.54) mixed with Be Good To Yourself Quark (90p) and a little icing sugar to taste.” Sticks of carrot, pepper and celery are also great for kids to grab and go. They’re good for platters too: add cheese, ham, olives and picnic foods like Mini egg bites, by Sainsbury’s (65p for 6) for a party on a plate! Problem: Charlotte loves dancing, acting… and pizza! But what if there’s no time to make one, and none in the fridge or freezer? Sorted: Mix it up! Find imaginative new ways to use your store cupboard staples. Pitta bread isn’t just for kebabs in Lynda’s house. “For a quick pizza, I take a pitta bread, spread on some Red pesto, by Sainsbury’s (£1.30), add toppings, and put it in a hot oven for ten minutes or so. The pitta bread works really well as a base – particularly the Wholemeal pitta, by Sainsbury’s (50p for 6) – and the red pesto is a quick, tasty alternative to tomato sauce. We all love it!” WHY NOT TRY? Your favourite dips served in colourful peppers.
