So the summer over and the evenings are cooler and darker. It is the time for comfort food. It seems that my signature dish for this time of the year is shepherds pie. It is something we ate by the dish load when we were younger. I now just make up my own recipe and add whatever is in the cupboards and fridge. Today I found a some beef (so perhaps it should be strictly called Cottage pie), celery and mushrooms. There was a bottle of red wine that got added to the mix as well as onions, garlic, salt, pepper and nutmeg. My husband bought some carrots home so I sliced those into the pan.
The top is decorated by swirling a fork in the mash potato.
The finished product was heavenly as it came out of the oven. It was of course ever so tasty and very comforting.
