Recipe: Yummy Scrummy Lasgane






The kids all but do somersaults when I tell them it's lasagne for dinner! It is a bit of an indulgent recipe when I'm on Weight Watchers so we serve it with a salad. If me and the Hubby are not trying to lose weight we split it 4 ways instead for 15pp because it's so tasty and add a chunk of garlic bread! The smoky bacon adds an extra depth to the meal which is simply awesome!

Meat Sauce

1 tsb vegetable oil
1 onion, diced
1 pepper, diced
1/4 lb smoked back bacon, diced
1/2 lb lean beef mince
2 cloves of garlic
1 courgette, diced
6 mushrooms, diced
1 tin tomatoes
1/2 pint beef stock
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
Salt & Pepper

6 x dried lasagne sheets

The meat sauce is very simple, gently fry the onions and peppers in the oil until soft. Then add the bacon. After a few minutes add the mince and brown. Keeping the heat medium to low add the courgette and mushrooms and stir.

Once all the vegetables are softned and the meat is looking cooked add the tomatoes, stock and herbs. Bring to the boil and then simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally. Season to taste. Leave this to reduce until the sauce is think.

Cheese Sauce

2 1/2 tsb plain white flour
1/2 pint whole milk
1/4 tsp nutmeg
salt & pepper
1/4lb cheddar cheese, grated.

In a small saucepan sift the flour and nutmeg together and the slowly add the milk, whisking the whole time. Then heat slowly, continuing to whisk, until the milk starts to thicken. Sprinkle in half the cheese and whisk until smooth.

The Layers

Spoon 2/3 of the meat into a lasagna dish / rectangluar oven proof dish. Layer on 3 of the lasagne sheets. Then spoon on the remaining meat sauce and half of the cheese sauce. Place the last layer of pasta, and pour over the rest of the cheese sauce. Use the back of a spoon to spread the sauce over the pasta and make sure it is all covered. Sprinkle over the rest of the cheese.

Bake in the oven for 20 mins on a medium-high heat (I use GM 7)

You can leave this to bake later. From cold give it 25-30 mins on GM5

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
