For week 2 I wanted to make something that the four of us would enjoy, so I decided on a good old Scottish favourite - mince and tatties. I did read a couple of recipes, but kind of made it up as I went along.
(to serve 4)
1 large onion, chopped
400g lean beef mince
2 large carrots, diced
Beef stock cube
6 large potatoes
I fried the onion in olive oil until it was soft. In the meantime, I browned the mince in a separate pan, then drained it. Then I tossed the onion, mince and carrots in the same pot, added a pint of beef stock and brought it to the boil. I left it to simmer on a low heat for 30 minutes while I mashed the potatoes.
I have to say it didn't look too appetising to begin with:
But it turned out ok in the end!
This looks like a good recipe for mince and tatties.
I've decided to try something sweet next week. I'm craving sugar as I'm on this stupid diet, but I'm sure it will be fine to stuff my face with cake if it's completely homemade...
