“Tray-baked Chicken, Squashed Potatoes, Creamed Spinach” from “30 Minute Meals”

Time taken: 29’43”

Tom: Well, I’m starting to see the point of this book. It’s like doing an obstacle course. Or going on an expedition. Or going down a roller-coaster. Whoosh!

Kirstin: No, it’s “The Generation Game”!

Tom: You get everything ready. Then you start the clock and you’re off! You have to go from one thing to another. After 30 minutes, you come out at the other end, and you have lots of food. But it’s non-stop. You are knackered. No standing around and drinking wine!

Kirstin: We had five minutes of standing around at the end. But only because we didn’t do the strawberry slushie drink that’s part of the recipe.

Tom: I think we could probably have done it in the time available. We just didn’t want to do it. Also, this time we didn’t wash up pans as we went along, which was good, because we had to reuse them a lot.

Kirstin: You’re right, we’d learned our lesson on that.

Tom: And the results were really good! I loved the garlic potatoes. And even the spinach.

Kirstin: I love spinach. It really was a whole plateful of food. I really liked that part about this recipe! But I don’t like cooked tomatoes. I don’t see the point of cooked tomatoes. All the things I like about tomatoes are destroyed when you cook them. I like them to be crunchy and taste nice.

Tom: I know what you mean. I don’t normally like cooked tomatoes. But I liked those. Yum!

Kirstin: Would we make it again?

Tom: Yes, I think we would.

Kirstin: I totally forgot to take the before and after photos. Oops. I’m a bit tired after Ella’s laser spy alarm went off not once but twice in the middle of the night. Grrr.
