Creamy Mustard Pork and Mushrooms



Creamy Mustard Pork and Mushrooms

I know, I'm hitting the creamy sauces hard at the moment, but January in my mind is not the time to be eating salads! Not when the weather outside is freezing.

I served this super easy creamy mustard pork dish with pasta and salad - so at least that bit was healthy.

Fish Pie ~ with a difference!



Fish Pie with Sweet Potato

The difference being sweet potato!

Whilst flicking through my newest cookery book, Jo Pratts 'In the Mood for Food', I came across this fish pie - with a grated sweet potato and cheese topping. This was a revelation, it was gorgeous, creamy, smokey and rich (cash wise too as it contains Cod, Tiger Prawns and Smoked Salmon), perfect food for a very cold day.
