Sheppard's Pie For St Patty Day!
A Great Recipe For St Pat's Or Any Day!
Sheppard’s Pie for St Patrick’s Day
Don’t you love having supper made for you?
Especially if the person making your supper is your most loved, most favourite daughter?
Well of course! So all you need are the following ingredients/starting with love.
My daughter has been trying to stay as real, organic, natural, and as whole as possible with her food, lifestyle and all the above for the past couple of years. And, as we all know, the small changes we make do tend to rub off on the ones closest to us; the ones we most love and want to influence right? It is nice when those changes taste so delicious!
Start at whatever form of natural food grocery store you have in your area. For the desert, that would be Sprouts or Whole Foods Stores. We happen to like Sprouts the best but do not forget that you can now find many organic foods at Wal-Mart.
I know; just doesn’t have the same connotation as Sprouts or Whole Foods…but nonetheless, that other large supermarket chain is trying to show that it too can provide wholesome, drug and chemical free foods as well as any other chain. What you believe and what you choose is up to your own personal choice.
My Daughter looked for recipes pertaining to St Patties Day online and improvised from there. She is a free spirit and her father and I love to eat whatever her imagination feels would be tasty! Why? Well because whatever she makes always IS tasty, what else?!
Here is what she made for us tonight, on the eve of St Patrick’s Day
A delicious Sheppard's Pie! Yummy!
What Have I Left Out?
Nothing really. Just enjoy the time and talk and love of whoever you are with as you build this delicious meal! If you are lucky enough to have that loved one be your daughter or your son? Oh my goodness you are so very lucky!
Love them and touch them and let them know you feel so Blessed to have them in your life!
Grass fed Non-organic beef hamburger
Pie crust (the one ingredient we both agreed would be all right Not to make from scratch!
Now first and foremost you must know that this dinner takes very little time! YES! And it is easy! Just commit to having at least three pots and pans going at the same time and yes, sous chef (that was I) is an extra bonus
Start by browning the onion/garlic and shoestring carrots sautéed then add the beef. In a separate skillet cook the bacon, and drain the fat. Add the quartered cabbage to the bacon and cover with at least 16oz of water, bring to low boil and cover.
The red potatoes are steamed, drain the water and make mashed potatoes with sour cream or whipping cream (daughter said she loves the taters with the whipping cream best but I don’t care as long as daughter makes it!)
She also adds chopped green onions garlic power and a little bit of milk just to make it nice and creamy YUM! We had a difficult time not taste testing them too often while the rest is brought together!
Bake the piecrust in the pan for at 350F for 10 min just so it was not soggy
Start by adding the meat mixture with broccoli and carrots then dot bits of potatoes and add another layer of cabbage and bacon and more potatoes and finally the last piecrust
Bake at 350 for 20 min then last 10min on broil just to brown the crust
Oh my goodness Thank You Daughter and Thank You St Patty!
I wouldn't even hazard a guess about this but I will say that my fitness pal or choosemyplate say it is between 320-380 calories. Wonder how much is the serving size?
When the daughter makes our meal? I do Not count calories at all!
Love Negates All Calories in my opinion!
