When all is lost and you have no other card left under your sleeve, a home cooked meal will always do the trick.

Cooking at home may seem boring and an easy way out but in the real sense it actually increases your bond as a family, after all it is Father’s day.

And with the pandemic still looming in the shadows and people social distancing, it would be much safer for you and your family to spend quality time in the privacy of your home.

If you are wondering what you can cook for your husband on this special day, here are some ideas of meals you could try:

Nothing beats any Swahili dish like pilau, it is easy to prepare and can be served on its own.

Let’s all be honest, nothing beats Swahili dishes when it comes to sharing amazing meals with your family and friends. It is easy to prepare and it won’t take up much of your time, you will enjoy family time as much as you will be cooking.

All you will need is a side dish of kachumbari and your meal is as good as ready.

Mashed potatoes and meatballs

Yes, it is as mouthwatering as it sounds and the time it will take you to prepare will be all worth it in the end. This is one easy and fast meal that is both favourable for adults and children.

The combo was definitely a match made in heaven and there is just a way meatballs make the gravy thicker and more lustrous to the tongue.

If you don’t like mashing your food together, how about you try some chicken biryani. Like pilau it is easy to prepare and your whole family will be licking their fingers when they are done.

You will definitely need a bigger plate for you to enjoy this meal.

Okay not all foods with fancy names are complicated and impossible to prepare at home. For instance, Lyonnaise it just a fancy name for potato wedges only it comes with a bit of lemon zing.

If you try these potatoes, trust me you are never going back to plainly fried potatoes again. On the side you could have some salsa and mayonnaise to garnish your meal.

Spaghetti Bolognese

You may be used to your pasta plain and white but once you try the Bolognese, your life will never be the same again. It is a fun recipe to prepare and the best part is that no ingredient is too much or too little.

It all depends on how you want and like your pasta. You could also grate a little cheese on the top once ready to make it creamier.

Ugali and Fish

If you know men, then you know a plate of well-prepared fish and ugali will always do the trick. Not only will it be an amazing dish to share as a family but it will provide the perfect alternative to chicken and beef dishes you are probably used to.

If you want to make this meal even juicier, make the fish tilapia and add some coconut sauce and kachumbari on the side, you won’t regret it.
