Lamb meat loaf

I looked at several meat loaf recipes, then made this up with the ingredients I had.

500g lamb mince
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
4 mushrooms finely chopped
1 piece wholemeal bread, crusts removed
1/2 jar Waitrose mixed sliced peppers
1 tsp ground cumin
1tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
scant tsp salt

Crumble bread in a bowl, add enough milk to just cover. Soften chopped onion in a little oil, adding garlic after a few minutes and allowing this to cook for another 2-3 minutes. Put ground spices in. After 30 seconds add chopped mushrooms. Cook until  soft. 
Put lamb into large bowl. Add contents of onion pan, salt, softened bread, and the peppers. Mix well. Have ready a 1lb loaf tin lined with baking parchment. Tip the meat mixture in and level. Fold baking parchment over. Cook for 45 minutes in oven at 180C.
Pour off the liquid from around the loaf, let rest for 15 minutes before eating. 
This would serve 6 people
We also ate mashed potatoes and broccoli.
