Pork Chili & Butterbean Mash

Written by , Posted in Mains


Good morning friends! (is it still morning?? These days fly past me at a rate of … what’s the saying? Knots?) I am counting down the days until I leave for Bali. Breakfast, beach, book, bed. Order of priority ;) This holiday can not come sooner. I am exhausted. I can’t even get through one sentence these days without yawning. My head hurts all the time and I can’t remember the last time I didn’t wake up feeling more tired than when I went to bed. Unfortunately for me I tend to eat more when I am stressed. So the fact that there are still 3 excruciating weeks left till I fly to the beach means I am most likely not gonna be super happy to be in a bikini. So. There’s that.

Anyway. Speaking of eating more. This meal is a seriously filling but still-wanna-eat-thirds kind of dish. Everyone is still looking for festive meal ideas right? Ror those cooler summer evenings (if there is even such a thing anymore), this is a great one and it feeds A LOT of people on a relatively small budget.

It’s another proud partnership with Eskort – for the Eskort Spring Recipe Booklet (I would go download it – it’s full of fun recipes for you and your family this festive season.
