Shepherd’s pie.

Here is another post about food instead of about anything else, because food is easier to talk about.

Although FunkyPlaid does an excellent job looking after me, I do not do the best job looking after myself. I have allowed myself to be a bit overrun by deadlines and responsibilities, and haven’t carved out enough time to just sit in one place and not do anything. I even have a China Miéville book on my nightstand that has been sorely neglected.

Because of my mental state, I have been falling back on old recipes for dinner. Not so tonight, when I decided to make Alton Brown’s recipe for shepherd’s pie.

This involved a trip to Waitrose, which I love. It is very posh and has nearly everything … except for a glass baking dish, which we neglected to pack, so I had to do some on-the-fly adjustments.

I was skeptical of these adjustments until most of the hard work had been completed. Then I decided that no matter what happened, I was going to devour it because it smelled so good.

  1. You have no idea how pleased it makes me that you are actually making Shepherds pie properly – ie with Lamb. The lack of understanding internationally between Shepherds and Cottage pies drives me TO DISTRACTION.

    Shepherds do not herd cows, they herd sheep. Beef has no place in a Shepherds Pie. END OF.


    1. I am glad you approve. And let’s not dwell on whatever past kitchen transgressions of mine that might have insulted your sensibilities, because I am sure there were some, especially that time I made sweet potato cottage pie. Please don’t cry.
