Following Kenny from Life is for beginners’ suggestion, I think it’s an awesome idea to have a countdown to Christmas. Nearly like an advent calender -except that I will have difficulty posting everyday! I will however endeavor to post as often as every other day. =)
My other idea for Christmas is to do a meatloaf. Does apple plum sounds festive? Funny enough, I was never game enough to mix sweet and savory together but this odd phrase of experimentation in food is now unleash in me and I’m now game to do so! It’s tangy which makes the meatloaf more interesting.
Now, I just need to convince my grandmother and AR”s brother (who are visiting this Christmas) to be happy with this meal idea…
Apple Plum Meatloaf (Serves 4-5)
300 grams of lean beef mince
1/2 onion finely chopped
1 cup of breadcrumbs (I used packaged spiced)
1-2 tsp of Lea and Perins Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons of plum sauce (Be generous!)
1 apple sliced thinnly
Glaze with plum sauce.
1) Marinate beef mince with all the ingredients listed (except apple and glaze) for 30 mins or so.
2) Preheat oven to 200C. Line baking loaf with baking paper. Stuff mince into loaf and pack deeply. Place sliced apple on top and glaze with plum sauce.
Serve with salad.
