Shepherd's Pie

I can't tell you the last time I've eaten shepherd's pie. Well, it was awhile ago. I was jazzed when Mal suggested making it tonight with ground turkey instead of beef, and I am still shocked that we had a can of corn. (FYI: Shepherd's pie is traditionally ground beef, mashed potatoes, and corn.) 


I have to admit, I've missed this easy-to-make comfort food. I forgot just how much I enjoyed eating it.

My portion... 


Mal and I both had one of those days when you need a beer. Danielle was kind enough to bring a couple of Killian's down for us to enjoy. TGIT! 


Dessert was the same as last night: Puffins and peanut butter chocolate chips. I actually considered eating some of our leftover, stale wedding cake for dessert, but I decided to just toss the rest of it in the garbage. It was in no shape to be eaten. (I hope this was the only time ever, in my entire life, that I throw away cake.)


I was hungry when I got home from work-- probably because my lunch was kind of pathetic. Mal was running late after work, so I made myself a snack of Kashi crackers and a spoonful of balsamic sweet onion jam to hold me over. It was an interesting combination of flavors. 



If you can't tell from my post, my brain is in slow motion tonight. Time to give it a break. Good night!

Balsamic sweet onion jam sounds good! And believe it or not, I never knew what shepherd's pie was until I read your post.

I've been spending ALOT of time reading your blog lately and you've given me great inspiration and ideas for eating healthier!

And I thought about your site while I was grocery shopping a few days ago. I saw a really tasty looking Sweet & Hot Jalapeno Relish at my local mega-mart. I am kicking myself for not picking it up.....but I was not entirely sure what to do with it. I've been putting jalapenos on everything lately! I'm sure I can find something to do with it, so I'm getting it next time I go.

SHEPARD'S PIE! Wow, that is one of those things I have completely forgotten about since childhood. Using turkey, too... very clever hubby of yours.

Mandy said...

Oh my gosh, how many of us had shepherd's pie last night? Too funny!

You should try shepherds pie with tomato paste on the meat and mixed up and baked. Adds a little flavor!
