For those of you not of our shores, a Mixed Grill is basically a meat fest, a combination of several cuts of meat served on one plate, generally, but not exclusively a piece of Steak, Lamb, Pork, Sausage generally served with a pile of chips, grilled tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms and a little salad in an attempt to look healthy 😉
A few weeks ago I bought these meat packs from Iceland, and at £3.00 each thought they would make a welcome addition to Hubby’s BBQ menu 🙃 Since then the weather has been, well, pants….
We will be having this cornucopia of meat served with balsamic Slow Cooked tomatoes, padron peppers, homegrown roasted radishes, some Rocket leaves and maybe a jacket potato for Hubby.
The meat is being BBQ’d by my beloved
One of the great things about the Low Carb way of eating is that I can continue to eat most of my favourite things (sorry Homemade crusty bread, I still love you) including cheese, eggs and above all meat. As much as I enjoy Meat Free Monday, I tried living without meat for 6 months several years ago and was lured back by a bacon butty….
I am also having a sweet treat, by going back to the 70’s and making sugar free orange jelly with tinned mandarin pieces – Aldi do a tin of these, in natural juice for 44p and a block of orange jelly for 32p
it’s a frugal and tasty way to have a sweet treat for just over 12p a pud (I make 6) 😇
Reminds me of meals with my grandparents – a dribble of condensed milk and I’d be back at their table swinging my legs at the table with pure joy 😊
