Linda McCartney

Red Onion & Rosemary Sausages, I have a liking for all her products but these sausages are a big favourite with me. The Mrs thinks they are a bit on the dry side, but I really do like them. As you can probably tell I am getting into a more healthy eating style these days, although I will still try the odd pie or two. Sugar is out now for me, totally unnecessary to add this stuff to our food as most products are full of the stuff. Eat healthy and think healthy!

Joseph,I like her foods..and the sausages..you've got to look at all food ingredients these days..all those additives do nobody any good..I even get soya mince..

Posted by: joseph 1 (inactive) Report abuse
Agreed, Momac. Tom she had breast cancer that spread, an horrible disease.

Posted by: tomplum (4805)  Report abuse
an horrible disease indeed mester, no matter if you're big,small,black,white,sportsperson or couch potato, healthy eaters too and all the money in the world can't help,

Calico Skies - the sixth song on Paul McCartney's 1997 album, Flaming Pie.

Your first post made me chuckle, Joseph, as I suspected some of it to be a bit tofu in cheek.

I rarely have sausage, but if I do they're of the vegetarian variety - Quorn/ Linda McCartney. I agree they can be dry (like parts of your first post?) but the serving suggestion of 'sausage, red onions & rosemary, with spring onion buttered mash potatoes and minted peas' certainly whets my appetite.

Posted by: joseph 1 (inactive) Report abuse
No, honestly, Jo Anne I'm on an health trip at the moment.

Dry indeed!

It's the pie bit still making me laugh, Joseph. Keep up the good work.

Posted by: joseph 1 (inactive) Report abuse
Well those pies I mentioned before had hardly any content, so I think I'm fine on that. To be honest I don't eat pies very often anyway.

Posted by: jamse (4118) Report abuse
Linda McCarntey "Steak" pies were great but they seem to have disappeared.

Those ASDA "Meat"balls are good too especially in a nice curry sauce.

I don't eat any form of processed meat and sometimes really yearn for an sausage, I will give those Linda Mcartney doings ago Mester Joseph

I had an aunt die from it almost 2y ears ago

Posted by: joseph 1 (inactive) Report abuse
Going to try Linda's veggie sausage and bean stew later.

I will let you know how it goes.

Posted by: jo anne (31809)   Report abuse
That sounds good, Joseph, we bought Linda McCartney sausages from Lidl yesterday - half price.

Posted by: joseph 1 (inactive) Report abuse
Have you tried them yet?

Posted by: jo anne (31809)   Report abuse
We've had them before, Joseph, though not in anything as exciting as sausage & bean stew.

Posted by: kathpressey (4656)  Report abuse
but high in salt and that's what I have to look at

Posted by: jo anne (31809)   Report abuse
I must admit, Kath, I don't pay the attention I should to the salt content of foods.

Typical values per 100g (2 sausages): Salt 1.2g, of which Sodium 0.5g

Salt: the facts - NHS:

Adults should eat no more than 6g of salt a day that's around one full teaspoon. Children should eat less.

Look at the figure for salt per 100g:

High is more than 1.5g salt per 100g (0.6g sodium) - may be colour-coded red.

Low is 0.3g salt or less per 100g (or 0.1g sodium) - may be colour-coded green.

Medium is between 0.3g and 1.5g per 100g - may be colour-coded amber.

As a rule, aim for foods that have a low or medium salt content. Leave high-salt foods for occasional use.

It's all 'frozzen' crap. Good God, don't you know what healthy food is?

Example: Two 'Finny Haddy' thick cuts from Morrisons done in the oven in foil with a little unsalted butter and black pepper.

Two medium baked potatoes, baked for 2 hours.

A fresh cauliflower, boiled until medium/soft and chopped using unsalted butter and white pepper.

A bottle of Hock (Morrisons)

A meal for two: 10.

Enjoy.

Nowt frozen theer. Linda McCartney my a--e.

We are having lamb's liver, dry-cured smoked bacon and onions cooked in Mackeson tomorrow, Billy; my daughter Ashley passed the idea on to me. Incidentally, we aren't going to Lewis this year, Billy.....just having a change and going to Yorkshire. Back to the Outer Hebrides next year. Our Joseph, try Tesco Caramelised Onion chutney on your sausages.....delicious!

Posted by: joseph 1 (inactive) Report abuse
Sorry folks got called away earlier. So here's the verdict on the meal, I was disappointed this time, it was rather bland to be honest.

Posted by: joseph 1 (inactive) Report abuse
Today I have had three potato cakes and two slices of my own wholemeal bread with a little butter on both. It was nice.

Posted by: momac (9144)  Report abuse

You mean the ones full of yellow colouring? VERY HEALTHY.

LOL @ Ahcawntspeyk - I was just about to type that.

My mum made me liver and onions the other day - god, I hadn't had it in years.

Today I am having scotch scollops.

Posted by: joseph 1 (inactive) Report abuse
I have liver and onions in the oven as I type. Later I am making Beef Wellington for the evening meal as we are having guests. Warm fire and good old English fayre prepared by myself and my assistant who I have the honour of calling my wife.

I've got breast of lamb in the oven for me dinner yum yum.

Posted by: joseph 1 (inactive) Report abuse
I'm not being too healthy this weekend, so anything goes. Breast of lamb is one of my favourites, a bit fiddly but worth it.

"Red Onion & Rosemary Sausages, I have a liking for all her products but these sausages are a big favourite with me. The Mrs thinks they are a bit on the dry side,"

Fry em' up in lard or beef dripping that will sort out the dryness

I tried them last week and found they were tasteless.

They aren't.

Has to be the oven for us. I'm probably one of the only folk not to own a microwave. Got rid when I had my kitchen done and just never replaced it. Don't miss it.

Posted by: broady (13692)   Report abuse
I'd like to say welcome back Bennie but I can't tell lies on a Sunday. Maybe time to ask Jay to post and send you scurrying away for a couple of years.

Vegetarian Week]

I'm not vegetarian but I do like a good sausage, Lindas are quite tasty but I like the real McCoy from the butcher. A bit of black pudding in them is even better.
