I finally made the perfect shepherds pie

After about 50 tries.



The other 49 still tasted pretty good, but they didn't look this good

We had to give up on trying to light the wild weed and ate it instead.

You escaped across Lake Erie and landed there?
Was it a shipwreck?

The potatoes look perfect, almost like a merengue. So how did it taste?

Haven't made shepherds pie for years, not since my wife decided she was only going to eat chicken and fish from now on - not really worth making one just for yourself.

The secret there is to cut the shepherds tongue out prior to cooking him, or her, esp. if you are a New York Cop and add bits of it to the gravy until it tastes right.

Toad in the hole is great, if you can get the English sausages.
