A different spag bol
I'm steadily working my way through my freezer. I really fancied a spaghetti bolagnais for tea last night but had no minced beef. But I did have 4 very nice beefburgers (yellow stickered of course). And this fancy carton of chopped tomatoes was a freebie that my eldest son got in a delivery. I didn't realise until I opened it that it had other veggies in it. Bonus!!
I defrosted the burgers then mashed them up a bit, it's just minced beef any way. Then made the meat sauce in my usual way adding red split lentils and grated carrot. I didn't need to add anything else as the tomatoes already had seasoning. (I usually add Worcester sauce, mixed herbs and ketchup)
It was rather nice with my GF spaghetti. Tasted different from my usual sauce but in a good way. I got 4 portions so there are now 3 in the freezer, 1 more for me and 2 for eldest son. He had his annual assessment for the DWP yesterday so fingers crossed he doesn't lose any more money.
Since I turned 50 I've been making a better effort to look after myself but kept forgetting to regularly take my daily multivitamin tablet. This morning I finally worked out how to remember to take it. Keep some in my coffee jar!! I only drink coffee in the morning so will take one out when I make my first cup and have it with my breakfast. Feeling rather pleased with myself!!
