Lj’s Lemon Pepper Tuna with Avocado and Cottage Cheese

Lj’s Lemon Pepper Tuna with Avocado and Cottage Cheese Very quick and simple and much more flavour than store bought flavoured Tuna. I mix half an avo with 1/2 small tub of low fat cottage cheese. Add fresh lemon juice and cracked black pepper to taste. I have these on Cruskits or Rye Vita’s for a lunch on the run on my busier days.

Lamb Shanks mmmm.. Yummy!

Quick and easy Lamb shanks seasoned with Cracked sea salt and pepper with some paprika. Brown on medium to high heat to seal, put the lid on and turn down the heat until tender. I take out the veg when almost cooked through and put in a hot oven to crisp up. Remove the lamb when cooked and leave to rest while you make gravy from the pan juices ♥
