Bad! Moon Rising

Cottage Pie

A late post today because we’ve had visitors.  An old school friend of mine and her husband came bearing dinner: home-made cottage pie; yummy.  Friends often bring me food; I’m not sure if they feel sorry for the Hub or they believe for no reason that I can think of that I have cooking issues.  It happens so often that the Hub says where other people have take-out, we have take-in.

It should be me looking after her, really: she has just waved off her brave and lovely eldest son to Afghanistan.  She said that about fifteen people went to the station to say goodbye and everyone was blubbing or tittylipped so her strapping young soldier boarded a packed train, found a vacant window, and mooned the lot of them.

Afghanistan has no idea what’s about to hit it.

    It’s good to have a soldier with a sense of humor. It will be very valuable when he gets to the war zone.

    I’m afraid I don’t know what a cottage pie is but it looks fabulous! Ahhh… I just looked it up. We call it Sheperd’s Pie over here and I love it!

      Shepherds pie is lamb, with mashed potato on top and cottage pie is beef, with sliced potatoes on top à la cottage roof tiles!

      Clever you, Tilly – it’s a good get-out to pretend to be a bad cook! Think of all the angst you saved yourself!

        I knew about the beef & lamb, but not the toppings.

        In that case, we had a cottherds pie.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
