Easy, Yummy Cottage Pie

Good evening, dear friends πŸ˜€

Usually when I run out of ideas on what to cook or when I don’t feel like cooking an elaborate, time consuming meal, I like to go for those one-pot meals. I always have lots of potatoes stocked up as they are so versatile to cook in any cuisine and my family goes crazy over any food that contains potatoes. πŸ˜†

As I have not been cooking regularly over the past few weeks (my hubby is suffering from a pinched nerve and almost everyday, I am at the doctor’s or chiropractor’s office with him) and therefore, my kitchen is not as well stocked, last weekend, I decided to work with what ingredients I had and came up with the idea of adapting Gordon Ramsay’s Shepherd’s Pie recipe to make a Cottage Pie. πŸ’‘ Thanks to Wilks from UK who commented at my Shepherd’s Pie post, I now know the difference between Shepherd’s Pie and Cottage Pie. πŸ˜‰

I substituted minced lamb with minced pork and beef and the end result was just as delicious. You won’t believe how large was my Cottage Pie – I used a round baking pan that was like 20 inches in diameter and 3 inches high and my family all had generous helpings of it. Of course, you know by now that I always cook in big batches and we are always glad to have any of the leftovers for lunch the next day! πŸ˜†

There was a simple fresh garden salad (the usual – lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cucumber) with a Thousand Island dressing on the side to go with the Cottage Pie, and dessert was San Francisco Vanilla Ice Cream with fresh strawberries. Yummy!

I’m going to bed now as it is almost 11pm and I shall wish you Sweet Dreams tonight! πŸ˜€

Do have a wonderful day tomorrow.

With peace and joy,

choesf πŸ˜€
