This winter has turned into one of the coldest on record.
Day's such as these call for stick-to-your-ribs kind of meals. Meat and potatoes comfort food.
One of my favorite English dishes is just that, Shepherd's Pie, a working man's staple.
A concoction of ground beef, onions, carrots, and peas cooked in a beef gravy and tomato sauce, with herbs and spices; then topped off with mashed potatoes and browned in the oven until the potatoes are nice and crusty.
I buy the Colman Shepherd's Pie mix, available through Publix grocery stores, on the English import isle.If it's not on hand, then the gravy part is made with oxo's or beef bouillon cubes and tomato paste, Italian seasoning, and parsley.
