This is the first salad with pasta and also with tuna 🙂 Bet it was good, really good 🙂 We already made it for a few times. But next time I’ll put only half portion of celery because we discovered that my hubby doesn’t like it.

Vištienos ir ryžių salotos su kariu

Chicken and rice salads with curry

I decided to prepare something new for our already boring quick menu. This dish is very quick, if you do like me – boil chicken a day before. My hubby commended. I asked him maybe the dish is so good because almost all the week we ate what we had on hand? But he assured that no and ate almost everything, leaving just a few bites for my next day lunch… You can enjoy these salads and cold, and warm.

Pasta salad with grean peas and tomatoes

Very simple recipe. Parents like it because it’s really quick and kids like it because it’s delicious. Almost everyday I find myself thinking about how to encourage my kids to eat more veggies. These salads are one step closer to my wish. My kids didn’t even noticed chopped chives 🙂 I repeated this recipe several times and both times kids said the same – it’s really good!

Pasta with corn

This dish is a winner for my kids! It’s very very quick and super simple. Even kids can prepare it. But I save it only for the time when I’m very tired or don’t want to stay in a kitchen for a long time. This dish is a little bit sweet because of the corn, maybe that’s why kids like it. But I have to warn you – make it only if you really like corn. My kids like pasta and corn so much that they even don’t notice that there is onion too 🙂

Satisfying cheese and ham salads

Everyone was happy to eat them 🙂 Of course – it doesn’t contain onion or garlic, which my children don’t like. I did only a half of portion, but after a few minutes my hubby rolled up the sleeves and made these salads again just all by him self because it’s hard to narrate how he liked them 🙂 A lot of products have a strong taste, so I recommend you to substitute some mayonnaise with sour cream or natural yoghurt. And I say that you can have these salads in a blink 🙂

Norwegian sandwich

I learned how to make this sandwich from my friend which is living in Norway almost for two years. Every time she comes back to Lithuania, she doesn’t forget to visit us 🙂 The last time she visited us with her norvegian friend, they found the same pickled prawns like they buy in Norway. So they showed us how to make this easy sandwiches.
