Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Shepherd's Pie

For fun, try asking your children which recipes they remember you fixing often.  You might be amazed.  

Today's post is at the request of oldest daughter.  

 
Shepherd's Pie

1 pound ground beef
1 onion (I used 2 shallots instead)
2 carrots, chopped
1 cup fresh cut green beans
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 cup water
2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
cheddar cheese to sprinkle on top

Preheat oven to 375°.  In a pan on the stove, brown the ground beef and drain the fat.  Remove beef from pan.  In a separate pot, boil the potatoes.  In the original pan, stir-fry the onion, carrots and green beans for a few minutes, then add the beef, Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, and cup of water.  Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.  When the potatoes are tender, drain and mash them.  Add the mashed potatoes to the top of the simmered mixture, top with shredded cheese, and bake for 15-20 minutes in the preheated oven.


Thanks for down-home cooking.

  2. Oh, I love a good shepherd's pie! I was just thinking the other day how much I would enjoy some right about now. I do believe I shall make it for dinner.

    If I ask my children, I'm guessing each one would answer I make his least favorite meal too often. :)

Ten Things of Thankful: Home Edition

This has been a take-care-of-things-at-home week, and I'm thankful.  It feels good to tackle the mundane, yet necessary, tasks of home.

I've done some aquarium maintenance. (4) I'm thankful for beautiful fish that provide a calming influence.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
