I am posting tonight's tea. This is savoury kidneys with cauliflower, green beans and spinach. It was one of my father's favourites.

The recipe serves 4 for 230 cals and 9.2gm carbs. The whole meal is 275 cals and 15.2gm carbs

6 lambs kidneys, skinned and de-veined
8 rashers streaky bacon, chopped
12 button mushrooms, halved
1 onion, chopped
6 sprays 1-cal
2 tsp cornflour
4 tbsp water
4 tbsp dry sherry
2 tbsp tomato puree

Mist a pan with 1-cal and gently stem the onions for 7 minutes
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.

I also made a batch of Damson chutney and made the family an apple and blackberry crumble for dessert last night. Still got masses of fruit in the orchard but I've run out of jars or at least I will do once the onions are done. They should be ready in time for Christmas.
