For some reason today I'm a bit rajin to write and publish entries on the blog. Must be the prospect of the 3-day weekend coming up! Woohoooo!

I'm a bit backlogged, but here's a quick review of Shepherd's Pie which I made earlier this year.

First, cook the beef and tomato mixture on the stovetop (with peas, and other veggies too). Make sure you cook it in an oven-safe pan.

Make some mashed potato (this I made from scratch), spread it over the meat mixture, and pop it in the oven until the potatoes are crusty and a bit golden brown:

Then you can section it off and serve:

Pretty slice

It's not really too pretty because the slice didn't stay together too nicely when I lifted it off the pan. Seen here, it's served with Buttermilk Bread (which I'll get back to eventually as part of a future bread blog).

Close up

This was really an attempt to get to know Vin's English background, this dish. He was quite happy with it. :D

Looks yummy. Did you use a real shepherd as part of the ingredient?

yope: i mashed him in with the potatoes! :D

chris: if there’s going to be a shepherd in this house, i think it will probably be vin dressed up as one. ;) and if i had to choose between cooking and old or young shepherd, i choose young also. the flesh will be more tender, no??
