coming out of cd-celebrating mode for story time and a recipe!
a friend of mine recently went l.a. bound- going out to receive training in order to become a certified bikram yoga teacher! she came over to have a last supper, seeing as she'll be gone for three months.
because we both are horrible planners, we were gonna wing it. and when she got here, we had some trouble deciding what to make. eventually settling on shepherd's pie, we set out to the store for ingredients :)
i'm not the biggest fan of mashed potatoes, but do enjoy it with the combination of pie crust, corn, and hamburger! give this yummy recipe a whirl, and you'll see what i mean...
~ 2 lb russet potatoes
~ 1 pound lean ground beef
~ 1/4 tsp ground allspice
~ salt & pepper
~ 1/4 cup watter
~ 2c fresh or frozen corn kernels
~ pinch sugar
~ 2/3 c milk
~ 1/2 c heavy whipping cream
~ 1 pie crust (or two small ones)
~ boil and peel potatoes; mash them until they are completely smooth, adding the milk and cream, and adding salt and pepper to taste
~ preheat oven to 350
~ mix beef and allspice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl by hand; then brown meat in a skillet over medium-high heat
~ defrost corn (if frozen) and toss with a pinch each of sugar and salt.
~ layer beef, corn, and potatoes in your pie crust
~ bake 30-40 minutes, or until top of the potatoes are slightly browned.
