Red Hot Céilidh Peppers


We had a great evening out last night at a céilidh to celebrate a friend's birthday - folk dancing, sea shanty singing, a barber's quartet and barn dancing. Such talent and such fun.

Today we had a robust veggie chilli for lunch. I discovered a supermarket version of quorn which is almost half the price of minced beef. As well as being cheaper than minced beef it's also quicker to cook and lower in fat too. I made the chilli and hubs made the potato wedges. He saved time too - he par boiled the cut wedges for 5 minutes and then cooked them for 30 minutes at 180C. 


Sometimes I sneak extra veggies (mushrooms and spinach) into the chilli mix but today I made a straight chilli. Everybody had to have some salad though. 


Hope you've had some fun this weekend too.
