Shepherds pie, a delicious casserole (also great to get rid of leftovers) and fast to prepare. An easy recipe for cold, freezing days.
It was cold outside! Freezy weather. There was ice on the roads, but sometimes the sun came through and everything looked so much more friendly. Nevertheless, it was dark outside in no time.
So I got the feeling that I should make a Shepherd's pie. A shepherds pie a la Andréa, because everybody makes his own version so why shouldn't I. And it was delicious. No scraps left.
The children were content (and that's a plus). So I will give you this delicious recipe.
It's a good taste!
