That one photo got quite a few likes and comments... my brother was amazed that a meal would cause such online chatter hehe
I am making another one today. When I spoke to mum on the phone in South Africa yesterday, I asked her what meal she would like on her first evening in London.. and she said it was a toss up between sausages and mash, and... you guessed it!
Hence another cooking in the oven currently.
So, what is the difference between a Cottage Pie and a Shepherd's Pie? I have been asked this a few times.
It's all down to the meat used! Beef mince used for the former, and lamb mince for the latter.
I make a simple pie: lean mince; tomato basil sauce; dollop of Mrs Balls chutney; diced carrots; petit pois; mashed potato; grated cheese on top.
Simple to make, filling to eat, a hearty meal on a chilly winter's day!
We were ravenous and first charged ourselves with lunch at the John Lewis 'Place to Eat' restaurant.
I had a chicken Caesar salad and Judy had a prawn salad. We both had a hit chocolate, which made me feel rather I'll afterward! Dairy and me are not mixing well at the mo!
We had a successful shop! I got all the bed linen we need for the new single guest bed (for mum! All whites... Which are accented by a girgeous woollen throw and cushions we have at home), and sis got me my birthday present ;)
Successful shop indeed! Haha

Her plane is called Cosmic Girl :)
We were on the same route and time when we came back from South Africa two weeks ago, except our plane was called... Tinkerbelle :)
Although this seems fun and dandy... Not too sure an app like this is too good for terrorists?
One can literally get all the planes stats, their speed, floor plan, air height etc. Loads of info!
Oh well. It's nice to be able to see where mum is at any given time, and I will get to hug her tomorrow :)

SA was amazing... The sunshine and laughter and swimming all the best kind of medicine :)
Well, many foods I battle to digest, am on a continual learning curve.
Not being able to eat certain foods is worth the incredible health benefits I am experiencing though... like experiencing my first winter in England steroid-free :)
