I am going to have a very free weekend and there is only one thing that I have in mind to do, and that is to do cooking for my family, but I have already exhausted my ideas of different dishes I know, is there anyone here who can help with a recipe of something special that I can prepare to make feel special, note that the meal should contain enough protein, thanks

I always like my weekend meals to be quick and easy! One of my favorites is to make a stir fry. You can use chicken, beef, pork, or any other meat you have for the protein! You can even use tofu, if you would like. Cook the meat. Cut peppers into strips. Cut onions into decent sized pieces. Slice a carrot and a zucchini. Any of your favorite vegetables. Saute them in olive oil, until tender but still crisp. Toss in the meat. You can add any of your favorite seasonings - soy sauce is a great place to start. Try adding oregano or rosemary. You could make this every weekend and have something that tastes different each time!

I always swear by my English Roast. Roast, stuffed chicken would give a lot of protein with selected vegetables. I normally have swede, brussels sprouts or brocolli, cauliflower and carrots, with roast potatoes, and Yorkshire puds. It's very filling but a very substantial meal. Other than that, I sometimes take some macaroni cheese or cook some pasta, make a sauce and add ham or bacon, sliced mushrooms and small brocolli florettes to it. Grate cheese on the top and bake it in the oven. There's plenty of vitamins and minerals in that too. Brightest Blessings.
