Forgive Me Father for I Have Sinned!

Monday afternoon I met my partner at the shops for a quick afternoon tea and after doing so well all year I decided to splurge with a slice of Lime Swirl Cheesecake and an Irish Nut Creme Coffee. It wasn't an accident or a mistake. I enjoyed it and made a purposeful choice for that afternoon.

It's amazing how big an impact a little snack can have!

I tried something new last night for dinner from left overs and it was incredibly delicious! Three slices of left over meatloaf, spread with my tomato & onion sauce from the weekend and sprinkled with pizza cheese. I baked year for 15mins in a very hot oven and they came out like the most scrumptious meatloaf pizzas! Highly recommended!!! I'll be making more meatloaves just to make these a day or two later.

Meatloaf and Mash

Dinner last night was delicious. I made Meatloaf with Creamy Roast Pumpkin / Cauliflower Mash and Steamed Broccoli Florets.

20140225-173628.jpg I began by browning 100g diced streaky bacon in loads of grass fed butter. Next I added one finely chopped large brown onion and sautéed until translucent. One large grated carrot went in next along with 1 tablespoon of whole grain mustard, mixed herbs, and a good screw of black pepper.

20140225-173450.jpg Once all that had cooked down nice I set it aside to cool while I prepared my pumpkin.

One quarter of organic kent pumpkin peeled, chopped & sprinkled with salt, pepper & smoked paprika and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

I placed it on a lined tray and into a 200°C oven to roast.

I then took my cooled ingredients for the meat loaf and combined them with 1 egg, 1kg organic beef mince and 1/2 cup of almond meal. Once combined this went into a loaf tin and in the oven with the pumpkin.

20140225-173544.jpg When the meat loaf was nearly finished I removed the pumpkin from the oven, boiled a full head of cauliflower until tender, drained and then mashed the two together with my stick blender and loads more butter.

The mash was so super creamy no sauce was required. Yummy!!!
