Ella has started playing football with some friends at our local sports centre. It’s on a Tuesday night, 5-6pm. She doesn’t want her tea before playing football so she has a snack after school and has her tea when she gets home. After all that exercise, she’s very much ready for her tea when she gets home.
This week she asked if her friend could come home with her and have tea with us after football.
We usually eat at 6 pm so Tuesdays is a bit tricky now. Ant does the cooking but he’s also the one who does the driving so he has to drop Ella off and pick her up.
It’s ok if he’s put something in the slow cooker but if not he has to try to fit in cooking and driving.
Rustlers Southern Fried Chicken
Yesterday we decided to make a quick and easy tea. Everyone had a Rustlers burger, some microchips (these were a treat as we’ve never bought them before) and beans; we had made some guacamole for the first time ever but it turned out to be a bit too spicy for everyone so beans it was!
We’ll know for next time not to use a full chilli!
Ant picked Ella and her friend up from football then cooked the tea in the microwave when he got back.
Everyone had their buns toasted and they all loved the burgers and chips. Ella and her friend had their burgers with just the peppered mayo that came with the burgers but Kaycee added sliced tomato and the mayo to hers.
The burgers are slightly smaller than the average burger so they’re great for smaller appetites, however, Aiden is a strapping 17-year-old and he said it was enough for him.
Quick, Easy Tea
For a midweek meal that needs to be quick and easy but most importantly one that children will love, these burgers are a great choice.
I have been looking at all the Rustlers products on Tesco and I’m tempted to add a couple of flame-grilled gourmet BBQ burgers to the basket for Ant and me; they look delicious!
