Mid Week Meal: Bangers and Mash and Brussel Sprouts
The casserole was simple as I used a Maggi packet (yea a bit lazy I know). I don't ususally go for those. The only other one I have ever used is Beef Stroganoff which is a real favourite in our house. So I just added onions, tomato sauce and sausages and I was actually quite impressed. Vinnie and the girls loved it as well.
For those of you that don't know we have our nephew Vinnie living with us. He lived in Tonga until last year when he moved here to study. There's a lot of things he hadn't experienced (like snow up until last week) including brussel sprouts(yes there is a link here).
Last night as dinner was served...
He said "Oooh what are these?"
To which I replied "They're brussell sprouts. They are like tiny cabbages and they have an extra strong cabbagey taste".
He said " Ok so they're like a 'shot' of cabbage!" I thought that was pretty funny
I've made a few nice puddings in the last couple of weeks so I might share them next
