Pastor's Pie

After a hiatus from cooking, Daddy is back again. Last week it was a bacon amatraciana with macaroni (aka daddy's delight). Ethan loved it so much that Daddy didn't mind slaving away at the stove again. I didn't have any name for it at first but it was yummy mashed potatoes with milk and butter that formed the base.

Sixteen servings of mashed potatoes need some delicious topping and it was a beef base this time. At only 90c/100g for this brazilian minced beef, $2.70 sure went a long way. I usually load up Ethan with sauteed onions, but Mummy noticed that his poo was especially smelly this week. So it was sans onions with other goodness instead - red and yellow peppers, carrots, mushrooms, tomatoes and basil.

After dishing out all the servings, it hit me! It was very similar to shepherd's pie with the mashed potatoes and the beef, but it was inverted with lots of other things instead. Therefore, Ethan's food filling our freezer is henceforth declared pastor's pie. In addition to the beef it has lots of love, joy, peace, kindness, and goodness. I hope there's not much self-control when Ethan eats it though. Will he like his new dish... pastor's pie?

Note: After telling this to mummy, she reminded me that pastor actually means shepherd! Ha hah ha....
