Add the kidneys, bacon, mushrooms and gently fry for 3 minutes
Mix the remaining ingredients to form the sauce and add to the pan
Cook gently until the sauce begins to thicken
Cover and cook gently for 7-10 minutes.
I find it does not need any seasoning.

Just back from holiday in southern Portugal. Breakfast most days was greek yoghurt with fresh figs, blueberries and some tiny wee baby kiwis. Beach days we took a packed lunch of rolls with lots of meat, cheese and garlic mayo + some chunks of watermelon. Other days we ate in restaurants for lunch and every night for dinner. The food was absolutely amazing! I was quite naughty and BGs on occasion were a bit flaky, but nevertheless I managed 83% in target. We are now home and stocked up and I'm looking forward to cooking this lot:
Well, yesterday I tried an Exante shake and found it had a very strong artificial flavour, a nasty aftertaste, and was gritty in the mouth. NOT a success!
L: Chicken salad
D: Fillet steak and more of the salad
Today I returned to my roots:
B: Poached egg, bacon, tomatoes
L: The rest of the chicken salad
D: The rest of the fillet steak with spinach and squash croquettes and tomatoes
