How's your day?

Recommended Posts

More or less like mine. I added celery! Carrots, onion and garlic. Had no bay leaves so added a few sprigs of fresh time ( lemon thyme)

worcestor sauce, glass of red wine, chicken stock ( had no beef stock) Don't like gravy browning , I used some " Astrattu"  a Sicilian tomato purée that my husband brought back when he visited a few weeks ago. It was made in his village and he also had 2 boxes of home made ready to use tomato sauce ( for pasta)sent.

Waiting for it all to cool before I finish putting potato on top, it prevents the middle from sinking which it sometimes does if you finish it off while it's hot. I have to buy some decent potatoes as the ones I've got are too small  and fiddly.

.The remaining celery and potatoes I've made into soup

How do you differ between a cottage pie and a shepherds pie. Apart from the fact you can't get many shepherds in !

Nonna, you could always stick Cadburys smash on top.  :hungr:

How do you differ between a cottage pie and a shepherds pie. The shepherds pie should only have lamb as the meat content. The clues in the name innit...

I know that don't I ? I bet your gonna tell me there's no cottages in cottage pie. Some transport caffs I've bin in, I swear they used to put the thatch in their pies. As a nipper I was led to believe they were the same until you put cheese on top then it were a cottage pie. Gone off the idea now, gonna have beans on toast instead !:hungr:

Shepperds pie  = lamb mince, cottage pie = Beef mince, no thatch required for both

Mad couple of days buying and selling our cars. A good friend mentioned that I had asked him to give me first refusal when he was ready to sell his very nice Tiguan. I have been in the car several times over the past 3 years so know it quite well. He fancied a Disco and offered me the Tiguan for the trade in price which was silly. So I bought it with the intention of using it as a fishing wagon and would sell the existing wagon, an old X Trail. Took the Tiguan home to show Mrs PP and she, unfortunately, liked it. Ohh it's a lovely black and got a reversing camera she said. "You are not going fishing in that, getting it all muddy and smelling of dead waders" she said. So she has collared it and told me to go fishing in her Touran. I would wreck the Touran in a few weeks on the tracks leading to our club waters. So I now have to keep the ancient X Trail and sell the Touran. Trying to sort out the tax and insurance has been a nightmare, made worse because I am over 80.

Absolutely glorious Mediterranean weather in sunny Hants / Dorset today. Took Mrs Fly and her sis to a retail park in Bournemouth, and left them too it. Had a quiet relaxing walk in the sun, and I'm now glowing !  :tanning:
