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. :)

It's #RootsTech Giveaway Time!

In February of 2018, not knowing exactly what to expect, I attended RootsTech for the first time. What I learned is that RootsTech has something for everyone, from the most beginner of beginners to professional DNA genealogists. If you are interested in your own family story, come to RootsTech! RootsTech offers over 300 classes, amazing keynote speakers, an Expo Hall packed with all sorts of vendors, and evening cultural events. 

After an enjoyable experience in 2018, I returned in 2019, and even got my husband, John, to come one of the days to hear Saroo Brierley give a keynote address. 

Speaking of keynote addresses, this week RootsTech just announced that one of the speakers for 2020 will be David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer. I can't wait to hear his story!

RootsTech 2020 will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and is bound to be the best one yet! I have been delighted to be accepted as an official RootsTech ambassador. One of the perks is that I received a c…

Ten Things of Thankful: Nearly Christmas Edition

This is a busy time of year, and though it isn't as busy for me as it has been in past years, my to-do list still seems longer than the hours in the days. However, I find that when I spend time to focus on the reason for the season, I can feel the joy of Christmas and the tasks-at-hand fall back into their proper place. This week I had the opportunity to attend some wonderful events, and I'd love to take you along for a virtual tour:

Let's start at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah, last Friday night. The Tabernacle Choir joined with the Orchestra at Temple Square and the Bells on Temple Square, along with dancers and guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas, to present a spectacular Christmas concert. Although I couldn't record any of the performance, the following 2-minute video from the church provides an overview:




The last time John and I had attended a Christmas concert by the Tabernacle Choir, they were still holding those conc…

Ten Things of Thankful: Dad's Influence Edition

Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement. 
I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me.
My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis.
When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a parent of one of my dad's students. 
Hello, Mrs. _______. How can I help you? . . . (an irate woman's voice is h…
