Shepherd’s Sunday

Sundays are my days at home just spending time with my family.  Today I decided to bake a Shepherd’s Pie.  In Antigua, a Shepherd’s Pie is not usually a Sunday dish but I am a million miles away so I can make it whenever I want 🙂

For those of you who don’t know, a Shepherd’s Pie is an English dish first developed in the mid 19th century.  Antigua was a part of the British Colonies before they become independent over 50 years ago.  Some of the British pastimes, phrases and delicacies still live on.

Now back to my Pie…here is a before shot:-

The traditional Shepherd’s Pie does not include Bacon on the top but I had to tweak it a bit :).

Here’s the after shot:-

The Ingredients included, potatoes, ground beef and mixed vegetables.  The Bacon on the top added a a nice smokey taste to the pie.

This pie had my whole family wishing it could be Shepherd’s Sunday every day of the week!!!
