#MeatMatters Challenge

This week in the crazy household we have taken part in the #MeatMatters challenge.

We have made two quick and easy dishes using Lamb and Beef,both of which are naturally rich in protein.

Lamb provides 4 essential vitamins that help reduce tiredness and fatigue~something I think is helpful for everyone with the busy lives we lead today.

Beef provides eight essential vitamins and minerals which support good health and well being, another bonus and a great reason to try new recipes to entice the whole family.

First up we made Beef Quesadilla’s

You will need~

*Soft tortilla wraps

*Beef strips

*Red and green peppers

*Mushrooms

*Onions

*Cheese~thinly sliced.

Firstly gently brown the onions,peppers and mushrooms in a pan, then add the beef strips and cook until thoroughly cooked. Line another frying pan with a soft tortilla wrap, add the beef and vegetables, cover those with the sliced cheese and top with another soft tortilla wrap. Press down gently and heat lightly until the cheese starts to melt and seals the wraps. Turn the wraps and once lightly browned on each side, remove and cut into quarters, serve with salad or sides of your choice.

Now for the lamb, I decided to go for a twist on a classic dish and made Chilli Shepherds pie.

You will need~

*Lamb Mince

*Onions

*Baked Beans

*Fresh Chillies

*Chopped tomatoes

*Potatoes (butter and milk for mashing)

Peel and chop the potatoes, put on to boil whilst the lamb is cooking.

Gently cook the onions until softened and add the chillies and lamb mince.

Cook until thoroughly cooked, add the beans and tomatoes, stirring well.

Remove the cooked lamb and place into an oven proof dish. Mash the potatoes with the butter and milk then cover the mince and pop under the grill for 5~10mins until golden brown.

Spring in my step

Pinch,pinch first of the month and all that jazz.

I’m springing into May quite literally~I decided to drag myself out of bed and restart my exercises that have long since been forgotten.

I did 20 minutes of what should probably really be described as ‘prancing’ around with my hand weights listening to the Greatest Showman (much to the amusement of my kids!).

I have swapped driving to work and now walk everyday which gives me plenty of fresh air and exercise aswell as racking up a few miles and lots of steps~ now to stop Chocolate Friday once and for all and I should find myself winning!

With a family wedding to attend in less than 3 months I am aiming to lose some weight for my new outfit which I need to decide upon, a task that is never easy at the best of times let’s face it.

Today marks a new day of a new month~the sun is shining and I’m smiling, let’s hope both those things last! Have a lovely day everyone. ❤️x
