Recipe: Shepherd’s Pie + Roasted Beets with Goat Cheese & Pear

Hungry for something really hearty on a cold winter’s day? Try my take on Shepherd’s pie. I first tried and fell in love with Shepherd’s Pie way back when Tom and I were working together but not yet admitting we had a thing for each other. We had a work Christmas party at an Irish Pub and they served it, with all of the rich and flavorful meat and veggies on the bottom, and creamy whipped mashed potatoes on top. As usual my first thought was – I can make this at home!

My favorite recipe for traditional shepherds pie is this one, but in this video I share my version which I have tweaked to make a little healthier. Trust me though, it is just as good.

The second recipe in the video is a great side dish or lunch dish. I’m obsessed with beets, and that is a good thing because here are some of the benefits: high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). They also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects

Tom’s 50th birthday was all that and a bag of chips! Thanks to our amazing friends and family for making this milestone so special. The cake almost burned the house down with all those candles 😉 but we survived! Happy birthday to my @tom_sandberg! Love you! You didn’t peak in the 90’s you’re still out here getting cuter! ❤️ #birthdayparty #90sparty

Friday mood…
Join me while I gather eggs and check what’s growing in my veggie garden🪴 🐓 Veggie update: Currently my zucchini is slowing down (praise the Lord! 🙏🏾)Tomatoes are slowly but surely ripening, I have a bed of sweet potatoes and yellow onion, and some butternut squash, eggplant, and bell peppers, and one pumpkin so far! Cucumbers had a moment early summer but seem to be done now. I also tried to do grapes but they were a fail. Every year in the garden is an experiment and a learning experience! #veggiegarden #chickencoop
I like big blooms and I cannot lie! 🌸 🥰 #hydrangeas
Ratatouille with a side of air fryer chicken and some crusty bread 🤌🏾 I called it ‘lazy girl’ Ratatouille but ‘busy girl’ would have been more accurate - because you save a lot of time by cooking the eggplant, zucchini, and peppers separately. Easy, fast, and fresh - give it a try! #dinnerideas
5 years old and already way too cool for mommy!
