Yummy Yummy

It's no secret that I love my food.

Infact you only need to look at my tummy to be able to see that's a fact.

However I am trying to be good.
(Hubby  always tells me I'm trying but I don't think it's meant as a complement!)

So last nights tea was a healthy version of chilli con carni.

I took one tortilla and moulded it over an ovenproof bowl. I then placed it in a hot oven for 5 minutes.
The result was this:


My own tortilla bowl.


I then cooked lean mince, combined it with chilli's, tomatoes and kidney beans and simmered till cooked through.
Whilst this was cooking I prepared my salad and began to layer up my bowl as such;

First salad,

Then chilli,

Then cheese.

And it has to be said it was yummy!
I know it was good as no one made a sound.

I am looking forward to trying some of the recipes from my new cookbook.
(Well new to me anyway!)

A bargain at 50p from the local charity shop and it is brand new too!


I love courgettes so this really appears with the coffee twist.


And hubby adores Turkish delight (Makes me feel sick!) so he will love this;


Happy cooking guys.

I'm off to centre parcs now so see you soon.

Have a great one.
