What's for Dinner Wednesday
The number one, don't make it for me because I won't eat it meal has always been Shepherd's Pie. It seems that Ed's college cafeteria would take the previous night's leftover meat, slap a bunch of mashed potatoes on it and call it Shepherd's Pie! Even veal parmesan (one of Ed's favorite meals that I refuse to make). It sounds gross, so I'm not surprised at his aversion to this meal.
When we worked for the meal prep kitchen, they had a version of the dish that used shredded beef that was divine. Knowing he wouldn't want it, I made my portions into micro-mini portions for me and the kids, and then Ed blew that concept by liking their version.
Lately, we've seen a commercial for a sausage based pie, so tonight, I did my spin on it. The recipe on tv is extremely different from mine and I'm really happy with these results.
I still want to make it with ground beef seasoned like swedish meatballs and top it with that gravy. There's always a next time...
