Dinner: Lamb Shanks

This is what LnE had to say: Tender lamb shank meat with a chunky tomato and red wine sauce served with creamy mashed potato and garden vegetables

I have heard you should take it out of the paper for presentation, but in real life, it looked fine. Plus minimised my dishes. I wasn’t too keen as I am not a huge mash fan but I do love lamb

My routine: Shower on -throw meal into microwave – program 9 min – jump into shower and wash – dry –¬† get into PJs – set up Ugly Betty and my laptop- get a drink (diet lemon¬† fizzy I decided) and quickly tidy up before it beeped – done. The smell was fantastic. I was impressed. Suddenly I was looking forward to this!

I sat down and tried a little bit of everything

Sauce – wow, salty. Makes sense, at 810mg of sodium… but delicious. Not bland at all

Lamb – Omigosh! SOOO tender I couldnt believe it. It was mostly top quality, with only a small amount of goo (fat) but very tasty, and just enough I thought.

Veg – a bit sad there wasn’t more pumpkin, but it was probably enough with the other veg. Mashed potato good – salty enough

I was very VERY happy with the whole meal. Halfway through I was feeling very full. Perhaps its because I had a soft drink, or because I’d just been doing exercise. Either way, feeling good about it all! I think the fact that it wasnt really old (like frozos can get) helped as there was no freezer burn

I give it an easy 8/10!
