Nigella Lawson says that technically Shepherd's Pie should be made with minced lamb and Cottage Pie is made with minced beef but perhaps that is being a bit too nitpicky.

I love the stuff but when I am in Australia I don't bother to make it from scratch since you have such great beef and potato pies readily available all over the place there.

i don't think i could stand to eat lamb.

i've only ever found shepherd's pie in one restaurant here. that's how i originally tried it, actually. i thought it was delicious but i prefer to make it myself so then i don't have to worry about the peas. i hate peas.

oh i also wanted to say that this was most delicious. the beef and veggies were excellent but so were the potatoes. i make the best mashed potatoes ever, no lie.

that's one thing i love about fall/winter...you have holidays where you get to do lots of cooking. i made the most delicious turkey ever to be cooked last thanksgiving and i'm going to do it again this thanksgiving. i love cooking. for thanksgiving i think i ended up making the turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, ooh and i made a delicious honey butter for the rolls.

ugh now i wanna make a huge thanksgiving feast. i'm already starting to plan my fourth of july feast. this brings me to an interesting question for you guys: is chili to be eaten in the summer as well or is it just a winter dish? cuz i see people on the food network making chili like it's going out of style and i wanna try making it (never had chili before) for fourth of july but my parents balked at the idea even though my dad loves chili.

You've never had chilli? You wouldn't survive in Perth. lol. You can eat chilli any time of the year. Thai people add it to everything and the weather is reportedly stinking hot in Thailand.

I love chilli. We have an annual chilli festival here.

Uh, I'm guessing that Khan means that dish with the mince and the beans, etc. WE of course know that the term refers to the small red or green vegetable which makes your eyes water.

Khan, you can have chili anytime of the year,
it doesn't matter. So go on, knock your socks off
and make some chili.
BTW you have made me very hungry for Thanksgiving dinner and it's only May.
I do hope you post your recipes for mashed potatoes one day.
My husband also makes some delicious honey butter for dinner rolls too.

Hey....your cooking photos are so Great! I am feeling really down so this cheered me up. You should start your own internet cookbook. You have a real talent for cooking.

Lamb is really good.

Vegetarians.

apart from the odd lapse now and again (a Philadelphia Cheese-steak springs to mind) I try not to eat beef or lamb. I used to be a huge beef eater but took a concious decision a few years ago to stop. However, some of my favourite dishes are beef dishes - Chilli Con Carne, Lasagne, Spaghetti Bolognese, Spaghetti Florentine and Cottage Pie (or Shephards Pie if using Lamb). What I use these days instead is a meat-free substitute such as:



When I was in the US recently I made Spaghetti Florentine for Abby and myself. It is usually made with ground minced beef but I substituted it with something I found in a store similar to the above. Being an ex beef eater (no, not one of those guys you see in London) I can't really notice the difference. I think Abby enjoyed it....but she doesn't eat beef anyway.
