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: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: #GeneralConference Anticipation

  Jesus Christ stands in an crowd of kneeling worshippers, with the caption "Peace be unto you."  source In last week's post, I expressed gratitude for some things that hadn't actually happened yet, but that I hoped would soon. This week, I'm thankful that some of those things have happened--and I'm still holding out hope that the others will. In addition, I'm thankful in advance for other events.  To revisit last's week's anticipatory items: My air purifier was repaired, the company sent it back to me, and I'm thankful for clean air. The car wash company accepted responsibility for the accident, have authorized a check to be written to the repair company, and I'm thankful I have an appointment scheduled for the new bumper to be installed. The shop did get the van repaired, though not in time for me to renew the tags before the end of September. However, I'm thankful that the state of Utah offers a temporary registration for only $6 whi

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
