Simple but Savory

Shepherd's Pie made with Ground Beef
It’s a week after the holiday season, a week after all the rich goodies and celebratory food and drink.  We have been craving something simple for dinner.  This time of year I like to dig out our favorite comfort food recipes.  Over the last couple of years, we have overhauled our diet to reduce the amount of red meat we consume; however, there are times when a good steak or a hearty shepherd’s pie made with ground beef really hits the spot.   

Comfort Food
So tonight it was oven-baked shepherd’s pie made with ground beef in brown gravy with sautéed onions, mixed vegetables and topped with oven-browned mashed potatoes. 

September Peaches - Summer in a Jar.

The perfect complement to this dish is a jar of home canned peaches from mid-September.

Baby Socks

Finally!  The baby socks have been made and delivered last Monday!  I wish they had come out exact... oh well.  We will instead consider this as the wabi sabi aspect of something handmade.
