4 & 20 Meat Pie Recipe
8 oz flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 pt water
2 oz beef drippings
12 oz puff pastry
1 beaten egg for glaze
1 lb minced beef
1 cube beef stock
1 tsp salt
1 pepper to taste
1/2 pt water
1 pinch nutmeg
3 tbsp flour
1 brown food coloring
Mix all base ingredients thoroughly. Roll out to about 1/8"
Roll out puff pastry to 1/4" thickness.
Saute the beef. Dissolve the stock cube in the water, add to beef.
Season to taste. Sprinkle with flour and cook till flour is browned
and incorporated well. Adjust seasoning and coloring to taste.
Make pies by putting scoops of about 1/4 cup on the base crust. Egg
glaze around the filling and top with the puff pastry, using the egg
glaze as a "glue" (try not to leave large air pockets). Cut around
the filling, creating individual pies. Brush the top with more egg
glaze for color and bake at 350 degrees till puffed and browned.

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
The case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one point that is often overlooked, it is damned hard (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carb diet.
The majority of the undesirable side-effects claimed, such as persistent tiredness, stomach disorders, or bad headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and spring onions)
The onion family of vegetables is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is insufficient hard medical proof at hand, allyl sulfides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce symptoms with blood circulation, sterilization and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so should be included in your weight loss program.
