Since David is still recovering from his wisdom tooth extraction, we are still on the mend with softer foods. We bit the bullet a little bit yesterday with a hamburger, so we went back a few steps on that. Before he got them out, I promised that I would make shepard’s pie for him at some point and today was the day. Now, my shepard’s pie is pretty much the easiest dish ever. I don’t measure the ingredients for this because it’s all your individual preference. I haven’t been feeling my best this weekend (allergies/cold), so I went the easiest way possible and bought pre-made gravy and potatoes.
*We do not have good lighting in our kitchen, so the pictures came out really yellow, please bare with me and trust me that this is good!
- 1 package of ground turkey
- 3 cans of peas and carrots (or not be lazy and get fresh peas and carrots and chop as many as you desire)
- 1 jar of turkey gravy
- Mashed potatoes (prepare however you make yours)
- Brown the ground turkey
- Add in the peas, carrots and gravy. If you’re using fresh peas and carrots, you need to steam them first, so they are soft.
- In a baking dish, add the peas, carrots, ground turkey and gravy mixture for the bottom layer
- Add the mashed potatoes for the top layer
- Bake on 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until the mashed potatoes are slightly browned and crispy.
This week is midterms week, so I’ll be spending a ton of time studying! Only two more semesters left… I think I can, I think I can.
