Success from last week:

Chicken & Capsicum Hotpot this dish I wasn't sure about. It is low-fat, and we raved about it when we were eating it. It is like a modern version of a late 60s dish stuffed Hungarian peppers which both my husband and enjoyed at the time.

Speaking of which I found this great recipe using pork mince and sugo.

Low Fat Menu

On a Diet Art Print


Last time I bought for my menu but we made these instead. Only had to dash out for pies and chips I think, was a bit short on olives for the pasta salad but it didn't matter, and I think we got a couple of cans of soup and brussels sprouts to have with the kranskys, it is a standby so I thought of it on the spot. My new shopping day is Thursday 21st.

I bought smoked paprika when I was in Coles on a shopping trip. Nice to see some recipes using it. I have quite a lot of ingredients already, so that is good. Last shopping trip was still cheaper than what I used to spend last year on food, so I was happy.

Swapped: Sweet Potato & Lentil Soup
Tuna, Lemon & Rocket Risotto
Pies & Chips
Chicken & Lentil Soup
Pea & Ham Soup with Kranksys
Tuna, Olive & Pasta Salad

Pork Sausage Recipes


Hofbrau House - Lunch, originally uploaded by VirtualErn.



In the past I was collecting these pork sausage recipes. Recently I have pork chipolatas from Coles, but not pork sausages as I haven't been driving to the shop I used to go to. But if I start doing that again, since then some new recipes have been published on the web. I will put the ones that look vaguely interesting to me, then when I try them I'll have to let you know my favourites.
