British Classic Mixed Grill – Low Carb Style

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.

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 😊

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...
