Recipe: Soya Mince Tortillas

Hubby recently started stocking up on soy mince because he had heard - rightly - that it was much less fattening than meat. I admit that I had not been keen to try it. I am very much a meat eater! But one evening he cooked for the family, used the soy mince, and guess what... it was nice! The kids ate it without question (we didn't tell them it wasn't meat) and when I worked out the Weight Watchers Propoints value I was sold!

So while we haven't given up meat, I do use soy mince instead of meat in recipes that would be very expensive in propoints if we used meat.

This tortilla meal is one good example of this. We like it with beans, and rice, and cheese, and dip! Swapping beef mince to soy mince makes it a much lower points value meal. Guilt free!

What we use:

8 Old El Paso "Stand'n'stuff" tortillas
50g Soya Mince (we use Granose)
100g rice
10 sprays of low fat cooking spray
1 onion
1 pepper
5-6 mushrooms
1 tin tomatoes
1 tsp Chilli powder
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Cumin
2 cloves Garlic
1 tsp Oregano

Extras:

1 tin baked beans (we used Branston's)
1 215g tub of Soured Cream & Chive Dip (we used Asda's own)
60g Cheedar Cheese

What to do:

Warm the tortillas in oven on a low heat, wrapped in foil. Cook the rice in salted water and set aside. Prepare the soy mince as directed.

Fry the onions, peppers and mushrooms until soft. Add the mince, tomatoes and spices. Stir in the rice and season to taste.

Heat the beans in a separate pan.

Spoon the mince & rice mixture into the tortillas, top with soured cream dip and sprinkle over with the cheese, serve with the beans.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
