    Well, we have a great pork casserole dish tonight.
    The weather has cooled and the price of the pork was so good - I just couldn't resist!

    It's smelling great as I type this - not quite ready though, I'll just go and give it a stir Smile

    All the best Jan

    Just for a change I bought some ground pork this week. Also more bacon, and some Cumberland sausages.

    I said to the butcher "I need some moo to go with all the grunting" and chose a huge Hereford rump steak which just went down the hatch with a load of broccoli, and on second thought a chicken breast. A proper Old MacDonald week.

    Yes pork is always good value compared to beef or lamb, not to mention venison or pheasant, but I prefer it as bacon. That's just me - and a few thousand others. Can't remember when I last had a pork chop, which goes well under the grill or in a casserole, but I stir fry the ground pork with my usual concoction of veggies and usually oregano and thyme (and add some bacon just to be on the safe side!)

    Autumn must be in the air !

    Dinner tonight Rustic Pork Casserole, you can't beat it Smile


    This meal is an absolute lowcarb stunner, and one of our favourites. 

    Ingredients: Serves two
    2/3 pork chops remove fat and cut into small pieces
    2 large leeks chopped
    1 hand full of button mushrooms
    1 large sliced carrot
    1 table spoon of dried mixed herbs
    Approx 1 pint of gravy stock
    Salt and pepper to taste.

    Method
    Clean, cut and place all ingredients in a casserole dish or earthenware oven proof pot with lid. Pour over the stock and cook at 190c in an electric oven 90 mins. Gas mark 5.

    What could be easier, very lowcarb, real food and tastes great. Perfect for a delicious Autumn meal.

    All the best Jan

    Tonight's meal was a very tasty Cottage Pie with a mashed swede topping ...
    I did add a little red wine to the gravy, very nice  Smile

    It's going to be a two meal day today. Earlier I polished off a herring with toasted almonds, spinach and a couple of thickly buttered oatcakes. Sadly this time a soft roe which I don't like and didn't eat.

    Shortly I think I'll wrap half a chicken breast in bacon and roast it with broccoli. The lamb can wait until tomorrow. Yesterday I had a rump steak with the last of the purple sprouting broccoli, with yes another thickly buttered oatcake and a glass of Malbec.

    How I've managed to stay alive for the last twelve years has me beat. Not many heart-healthy whole grains or heart-healthy vegetable oils, that's probably a good start.

    Well some of you may have already eaten dinner, but ours is still cooking.
    It's a fish pie for us tonight, mashed swede topping and fine green beans as a side dish.
    I may also be tempted to enjoy a glass of chilled white wine ...

    Cheers

    A wonderful conversation with the grandchildren earlier ...
    They had enjoyed Sunday Lunch with their other Gran ...

    What did you have I asked-
    Roast Chicken, Carrots, Cabbage and Potatoes was the answer ...

    Did you leave anything I asked-
    No, was the answer ...

    Isn't it great when young children sit down and eat a family lunch/dinner!
    Call me old fashioned but I think it's wonderful.

    No roast for us today - we had a very nice fillet of salmon Smile  
    With low carb, tasty vegetables of course!

    All the best Jan

    Oh bless! Real food rather than a packet of crap.

    Mine was a chicken semi-curry, I stir-fried bacon, mushrooms, multicoloured peppers and chillies, garlic and olives with the chicken (in EVOO) then added some turmeric, ginger, cayenne, coriander, cumin and cardamom and a splash of toasted sesame oil and simmered it with water until it was done. Since I had hardly eaten anything else all day, let alone any carbs, I had it over a small portion of basmati rice to soak up the juices. Not enough to shift my BG much if at all.

    What will we have for dinner tonight!!!

    It will be Chicken Breast wrapped in bacon with leeks in a cheesy sauce and some mashed swede, with a little carrot added.

    Yum! Looking forward to it.

    Now I may also enjoy a chilled glass of pinot grigio Wink (sounds a good idea! Lol!)

    All the best Jan
