Now that's what I call dinner


  • 3 rashers smoked bacon, fat removed
  • 4 large cloves garlic
  • 320g tin mixed beans
  • fresh rosemary and thyme
  • 2 lean lamb steaks
  • 2 low fat sausages
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 400g tin tomatoes


Chop bacon and garlic. Put in oven proof pan with beans, herbs, and a pint or so of water. On a low heat simmer for a long time til thickened. Meanwhile cube sausage and lamb and fry in the olive oil until sealed. Add the tomatoes and the meat, place lid on pan and put in low oven. Leave to cook for several hours until thick and rich with the lamb tender enough to fall to pieces. Serve with mashed spuds (with more garlic in!).

In other news I think I'm going to give up alcohol for the meantime. At least a month. And that's the second low fat filling meal today (having had a 3 egg omelette for lunch with onion, a little bacon, peppers and mushrooms, made with only the remaining fat from frying the meat for dinner). I'm wearing a brand new pair of jeans today, and want to get too thin for them as soon as possible. At least partly because I'm sick (sic) of the fact being overweight gives me terrible indigestion.
