I did a bit of research and then decided that simple was better and called on my old friend Jamie Oliver! I narrowed it down to two dishes – a Beef Mince Wellington or good old fashioned Mince and Onion pie. I was worried about the Mince Wellington being too dry, so made the pie! It was as easy as pie to make and quite tasty, however, it wasn’t good enough to win the contest! Thys and Shelley made a Cottage Pie which was delightful and they just proved it, simple is sometimes better! It was a tasty, wholesome dish and everybody loved it!
That doesn’t mean we didn’t have some “awesome, other” meals! We had stuffed aubergines, black mushrooms filled with pork mince, we had cabbage parcels and a lovely dish with mince and vegetables – the presentation of which was beautiful!
Collette went to so much trouble – the table was beautifully set and the snacks delightful! Not to mention the Malva Pudding dessert, which was, quite honestly, the best I have ever tasted! Nice one Collette
We were spoilt with beautiful new oven gloves, which Cheryl organized for us! SO! Cook-out started on a high! Next one, 20th March at Geordie’s house! Looking forward to that one!
