The Return of… Shepherd’s Pie

Happy Wednesday!! I have been on a roll trying new recipes lately and this shepherd’s pie rocked. I just had to share with y’all.

It is a KEEPER and officially brought shepherd’s pie back on my radar.


Here is the link to the recipe!

When searching for a recipe, here are the top 3 things I look for:

  1. Not a long list of ingredients.
  2. Flexibility to sub what I have on hand.
  3. And time. I want a short and sweet method! Bonus if I can prep during Tripp’s nap time!

So do you have a list of wants for recipes to meet?? Share below! Of course, my #4 would be an appetizing photo of the end product… Just being honest! I know my photos aren’t always TOP NOTCH, but I always try to capture a decent shot. When a hungry little toddler and husband will allow it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a fantastic afternoon!

Tripp’s Plate Tuesday + Meal Idea

Happy Tuesday everyone! Tripp and I had a delicious dinner ๐Ÿ™‚

Ham roast + Tessemae’s ketchup, peas + ghee, beets and broccoli. So good!!

 And my plate looked the same ๐Ÿ˜‰

So here’s a really fast meal idea… chicken soup version 3783773 haha! 

Ingredients are listed above. Sautรฉ the veggies in a good fat (I did ghee and coconut oil) then add your liquid (gold). I did a jar of concentrated broth with a jar of water. Let this simmer until your veggies are to your liking. Serve with any or all of the following: white rice, chicken, spinach, drizzle of coconut cream (the solid part in the coconut milk can!). 

It can heal your heart and body in one big helping ๐Ÿ˜‰
