We had friends over for dinner and I wanted to make something that I know we would all enjoy.  This Chicken Pad Thai is a really easy dinner that everybody enjoyed.  I made mine in the thermomix, but taste.com.au has a super easy regular recipe here.

Chicken Enchiladas – Chicken Enchiladas are one of our family favourite Friday night dinners, I think I say this all the time when I share a mexican recipe, but we truly do love anything and everything mexican in our household.  I love that this recipe is so quick and easy to prepare, with the option to poach your own chicken or skip this step and save a few minutes and buy a BBQ chook.


Ricotta Gnocchi with Eggplant Sauce – My kids helped, boy the kitchen got messy, but we had a lot of fun making dinner together

Macaroni and Cheese with Bacon – Typically mac and cheese is just that, macaroni and cheese sauce, but my kids love a little bacon flavour and crispy breadcrumbs on top.

Pad Thai is a big favourite here too – always have to make enough for leftovers for lunch the next day 🙂

How do you make yours Nancy? I dot. Have a thermomix and I never seem to find a good recipe for Pad Thais. Thx.

Thanks for the yummy recipe. My 2yo enjoyed it, as did hubby & I, plus it was easy to adapt to grain free for me. My 3.5yo was the only dissenter and I figure you can’t please all of them, all of the time!

Has anyone tried the noodles in the rice basket to save washing up??

Love your web site, thank you for taking the time to help when we need it, your Thermo recipes are wonderful

Ms_Motobikenut August 16, 2016 - 7:27 AM

Love how you give your readers both a non-Thermo version of the recipe (for those like me, who don’t like Thermo’s) & a Thermo version for the people who do.

One thing I would to say is the Coles recipes is no longer they now use Taste.com.au so maybe some of your links etc they take your readers to the Coles recipes website could be updated so they go to the recipe on the Taste.com.au site

Katrina - The Organised Housewife August 16, 2016 - 8:52 PM

thank you Ms Motobikenut, I thought I fixed them up, will add it to my to-do list, going to be a big job as I’ve linked to quite a few over the years 😉

Ms_Motobikenut August 17, 2016 - 7:06 AM

If you would like a hand I’m more then happy to help you just need to let me know how to do it 🙂
