solo dining

most of the time when RT is not home for dinner and i am eating alone i make something super easy and simple. pasta. cereal. sandwhich. quesadilla. something that will be ready is five minutesish and i don't have to worry about getting specific ingredients at the store. but last night i cooked for real for just me. shepherd's pie. i adapted it from this skinny taste recipe. 

instead of using ground beef i put a chuck roast in the crock pot on low covered with a packet of lipton onion soup mix and some water over night. i shredded up the meat in the morning and put it in the fridge until i was ready to use it. i also did my potatoes a tiny bit different. i mash mine with a little butter, milk, sour cream, salt and pepper.

so while the potatoes were boiling i mixed up the beef and veggie concauction in a large skillet and then i poured that into the bottom of a baking dish ..

.. then i spread the mashed potatoes on top. sprinkled the top with a little paprika for color. and baked it for about twenty minutes

when you pull it out the gravy has bulled up around the edges and it is basically the most deliscious sight you have ever seen.

so good i even brought it for lunch today .. and probably tomorrow too .. and the next day .. and the next day .. ok enough {ha!}


happy wednesday!!
