So we're coming into the summer here in Oz. The heat and the humidity will soon be out of control, and I'm looking for some meal ideas. I've been pretty good with stretching out our meals so far using lentils, beans, pasta, rice, etc, but soon it's gonna be too hot to eat those things. We're already eating later at night so it is cooler.
The hard part of this is that DP was raised in a meat and potatoes type of household, and has never, ever really eaten a salad. He's not keen on a lot of vegetables, and I have been working on expanding his range for years, but it is slow going.
I eat heaps of salad and veg because I am (basically) vegan, and I find it hard to come up with meals for both of us.
For example, usually I would make a pasta we can both eat, and then he will add his meat on the side. Ditto with stir fries, etc.
I'd love some meal ideas that I could use maybe to lure him out of his meat and potato habit, but if nothing else, something that is not unbearable to eat when the temperature is in the high 30s.
