I have been making various versions of this for over 50 years. It is a great family meal that you can serve with salad, various other veggies, crusty bread or just on its own. Hubby and I always preferred the lamb version whereas our lads always preferred the beef version, I compromise these days be using a combination of both when they are coming for dinner, although our youngest, Nicholas, seems to be veering towards the lamb version. A version of this recipe is available from Gordon Ramsey, a rather outspoken Scottish Chef who uses a lot of colourful language. I always overdo the cheese topping - well just because I prefer it that way and it's a good way of using up all those little chunks that you have been saving for later.

Shepherd's Pie (if you use Lamb/called Cottage Pie if you use Beef)

1-1/2 lbs ground beef (or lamb)
1/2 large onion, diced (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 medium zucchini, grated
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp fresh thyme (or 1/2 tsp dried)
2 cups beef/lamb broth
2 tsp salt, or to taste
1 cup frozen carrots (not thawed)
1 cup frozen peas (not thawed)
3 cups mashed potatoes
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, finely grated
couple shakes of Parmesan cheese

1.In a large skillet, brown the beef until no longer pink. Drain off excess grease. Add onion, garlic, and zucchini and saute for 3-5 minutes.
2.Add carrots and peas and stir together.
3.Add Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste. Season with thyme and cook for about 1 minute.
4.Add broth and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until sauce has thickened. Taste and adjust seasoning.
5.Transfer meat mixture to a deep casserole dish. You can use an 8◊8 square pan, a casserole or you can make individual servings.
6.Spoon mashed potato on top of meat. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese and cheddar cheese. Place the dish on a cookie sheet in case it bubbles over while baking.
7.Bake in a 375į F oven for 20 minutes or until top is brown and heated through. The sides may be bubbly. Garnish with chopped scallions.

Nancy I needed to find substitute dish for a recipe that I wanted to make and came across different size substitute. I would be happy to post one that is four pages long and the other one is about 1/2 page. Would you like me to post both so you can decide when you could use them?

Lake Charles Gumbo Recipe

1 T. butter or margarine
4 oz. andouille sausage, sliced thinly
3 chicken thighs, chunked *or see Note 2 below
32 to 38 oz. chicken broth
1 medium onion, chopped
2 (16 oz) cans okra & tomatoes
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1 bay leaf
1 tsp. dried parsley
5 stems snipped parsley
2 dashes EACH salt & black pepper
4 dashes Crystal
Cooked jasmine rice

In a 4 qt. pot, melt butter; add meats, stir; cover & simmer 10 minutes; meanwhile in another pot, start bringing the broth to a boil. At 10 minutes, stir onion into meat & cook on High heat 1 minute, stirring so nothing scorches. Add vegetables from cans, garlic, herbs, & seasonings, continuing to stir. When well combined, add boiling broth; reduce heat & simmer very low for 1 hour, uncovered. Now taste & adjust seasoning if needed. Serve with big dollops of rice added to the center of the soup bowls.

NOTE: if not serving right away, cool almost completely before covering so no condensation dilutes it.

NOTE 2: * add or substitute shrimp for some or all the chicken; just add any
shrimp for the last 6 minutes of simmering. This is super easy & good. Serves 2 - 4. easy to multiply.
A great Fat Tuesday dinner.
