But that’s not the reality of parenting is it? Instead, a decent meal these days is something with good quality ingredients that the children will eat. It needs to be ready within an hour, preferably with minimal preparation time so I can get some other jobs done while it’s cooking. We all love the distinctive taste of Tesco Jersey Royals. So, I’m sharing an easy Jersey Royals recipe that ticks all the…
