Here is a good/EASY Shepherd's Pie recipe..

1 pound ground beef
2 cups loose-pack frozen mixed vegetables
1 can (10¾ oz) condensed tomato bisque soup or tomato soup
½ cup low sodium beef broth
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. diced minced onion
½ t. crushed dried thyme
generous pinch ground black pepper
1 package (24oz) refrigerated mashed potatoes
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 375º. Lightly grease a 2 qt rectangle baking dish and set aside. In a large skillet cook ground beef until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon while cooking. Drain off fat. Stir in mixed vegetables, tomato bisque, broth, Worcestershire sauce, diced minced onion, thyme, and pepper. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring. Transfer to baking dish. Place potatoes in large bowl, stir until smooth. Spoon potatoes into mounds on top of the meat mixture. Bake uncovered, in preheated oven, 20-25 minutes, or until heated through and bubbly. Sprinkle with cheese. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Dinner last night, while watching and cheering on my Patriots!, was the turkey loaf, a slice sauteéd  and set atop some sauteéd celery, tomato, and spinach...
I put some spicy Tabasco mayo in the avocado half topped with bacon salt!
OMG how I LOVE that turkey loaf (recipe on 10-18....)
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

Sandwich Day

The annals of English history report that John Montagu was the 4th Earl of Sandwich. Among other things, the 4th Earl of Sandwich was a heavy gambler. Montagu often spent many long hours in London's gambling parlors. In 1762, he created the sandwich, by putting meat between two pieces of bread. This allowed him to remain at the gambling table for long periods of time. Obviously, the sandwich was named after him  
Here are some great sandwich ideas:
