Last month we went on a short break to Lincolnshire and brought back some locally made flavoured cheeses (the Lymm Bank cheeses we often get from the Living Heritage country shows we go to).
We have just got back from a week in France and brought back a range of different foods, including some smoked horsemeat sausages. I've probably accidentally eaten horsemeat, especially given how widespread the food contamination problem was last year but this is the first time I have knowingly eaten it.
The pizza has slices of the sausage topped with slices of horserasish cheese so I felt that it should be called a '2 Horse Pizza'.

The meatloaf recipe is similar to our normal burger recipe but baked in a tin instead of being fried in a pan.
All quantities are approximate.
- 400g or so of turkey mince
- 1 medium leek
- ½ courgette
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 chilli pepper
- plain flour
- 1 egg
- a couple of handfuls of breadcrumbs
- 100g mozzarella or other cheese
- salt and pepper or other seasoning as preferred.
Start by finely chopping the vegetables frying in a little oil until they soften. Stir in a couple of tablespoons of flour then leave to cool before mixing the vegetables with the mince.
Add the seasoning, breadcrumbs and egg and mix well. Put half of the mix into a loaf tin then layer half of the cheese. Cover with the remaining mix. Cover with foil and bake for about 1 hour at gas mark 6. Remove the foil and cover with the remaining cheese before returning to the oven for about 10 minutes to melt the cheese.
