Late again. Story of my life!


Well, like a lot of people, I thought today was Monday!  LOL  But it's still Tuesday, so better late than never.

Happy New Year!  Hope your 2023 is off to a great start!  Our New Year's Eve was quiet (if you don't count hearing firecrackers in the distance).  

I decided to try a few new recipes this week, and the first one was Yorkshire beef pie.  I've mastered the Yorkshire puddings for my British family, so I thought I would give this one a try.

Yorkshire puddings are basically a vessel for gravy and are often eaten with roast beef.  They are similar to what Americans would call popovers.  They are a bread-like dish, savory, not sweet.


I'm so happy with how it turned out.  I found a recipe, but I tweaked it based on my previous experience making Yorkshire puddings, and I made the "poor man's" beef pie with ground beef (instead of steak), carrots, brown gravy made from scratch.  When it was almost cooked, I added mashed potatoes on top with a bit of cheddar cheese to make a fusion of Shepherd's Pie.  My husband and father-in-law were pleased, which makes me happy.

And now...

This is probably a lot of people right now trying to keep their New Year's Resolutions!

HAHAHAH!  Cracked me up!


Cracks me up!

And last, but not least...

  1. I would have loved to try that dish. I love Shepherds pie. Yours sounds even better.

    Love all the funnies. I laughed all the way through. Laughter is great medicine.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  2. Heeheehee! These were worth it, even if they are a bit late.

    I didn't know until someone told me, if it's beef, it's cottage pie, shepherd's pie is always made with lamb or mutton. It really doesn't matter, we still call it shepherd's pie, but i thought it was interesting.

    1. I have heard that, too! Cottage pie. But around here, no one would know what it was. My in-laws have made pies with steak, kidneys, and lamb, not all at the same time.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
