Saturday night – 02/28/2015

Our favorite vegetarian had other plans this week so it was a meat-integrated-meal Saturday. With meat, veg and starch in the same dish it seems like scant menu however everyone enjoyed it to their fill.

Menu
Shepherd’s Pie
Drop Biscuits

Pricey Brownies

Notes
7 gathered for dinner this week (6 adults; 1 sleepy kid).

The shepherd’s pie was pretty close to the one in the referenced recipe. I had some mushrooms in the fridge so I sliced those up, microwaved them for 5 minutes to kick start the cooking, drained them and then cooked them in a bit of olive oil prior to cooking the turkey. I added them to the turkey layer of the casserole.

Brushing the biscuits with a bit of melted butter made an enormous difference in browning. I always thought it was a waste of time however, at least for these biscuits, I’ve changed my mind.
