My friend who is in hospital from a heart attack has a wicked funny sense of humour and seems to be improving daily.
Headachy and just generally feeling unwell today I opted not to visit her and hang about home in my pyjamas, my first full day at home in ages. So I called her for chat visit.
“What did you have for dinner tonight?” I asked, keeping the conversation light because I know she can be overheard by her three roommates, their guests and the hospital staff.
“Shepherd’s pie,” she said. “But I would rather have had the shepherd.”
We laughed so hard, I worried it might trigger a second coronary. But sometimes I think what comes out of her mouth will give me a heart attack, it’s so darn funny. Sweet is my Sunday in the knowledge my friend is getting better, her humour intact.
Wishing you a all a sweet Sunday, Shepherd, Shepherd’s pie or neither, lol.
But here’s my recipe for vegetarian Shepherd’s pie:Ingredients Mashed potatoes for topping Your favorite vegetables and beans mixed with a pound of ground veggie/soy along with lots of onion, whatever gravy/broth you personally prefer to make or buy. Directions Brown the ground veggie protein in a pan with onion, add the veggies, sauce or gravy. Pour into casserole dish. Top with mashed potatoes and bake 325-350 for 30 to sixty minutes depending on the size of casserole dish and whether you make a double recipe or not. Even non-vegetarians loved it and ate it in my home and loved it without knowing what I had done. Have fun and happy Sunday, all JAM 31 Mar2012 (c)
