Simple Pleasures – Steak and Salad with Chocolate Baileys Pots

We are having a relaxed weekend, and dinner will be the same.


I found 2 sirloin steaks from Market Porter in the freezer, so will griddle them and serve with a salad and Boiled potatoes  for Hubby, at his request.


I have sliced various Aldi salad Veg, baby gem Lettuce, spring onions, radishes, advacado, celery.

The steaks, cooked on the hot griddle for a couple of minutes each side, the potatoes, peeled and boiled till tender, dressed in a little salted butter.


I have addd some Stilton to mine, as it needs using and tastes amazing with steak and advacado.  A drizzle of salad dressing and we are good to go 😍

I am also making (Lidl fake) Baileys Chocolate Pots, a recipe that I found by a fellow blogger The Aldi Lovers Cookbook Recipe


I have amended the recipe method for Thermomix.  I start my melting 20g of butter, heat 50, speed 1 for a minute or till melted, then add 6 digestives and wizz on speed 5 till crumbs and butter are blended – I popped this mix into 4 glasses (greedy 😉).  Inthen wizz the bowl clean of crumbs with a bit of hot water, empty and dry off the worst of the water.


Add 200g of broken milk chocolate to the bowl, wizz for 5 seconds at speed 6, then turn down to speed 2, heat 50 for a few minutes till melted and liquid, add 100ml of your baileys and mix again same speed and heat for another minute till blended.


Add 300ml double cream, speed 3/4 till fully belended and pour onto your biscuit mix.


Pop into the fridge to firm up for a few hours.

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
