Payday cannot come quick enough. I spent all my pennies on my holiday so clinging on to the end of the month has been hard.
So much so, this week I needed a cheap yet comforting meal to serve for my lunch and dinners. Cottage pie is such a warm hug for these cold winter days and easy on the purse strings too.
I have tried a few versions of cottage pie but this is my favourite. I like the combination sweet potato, parsnip and butternut squash as an alternative to the potato topping.
Rich in beef stock the mince is the perfect combination. Yum!
I had flu last week and not much better this week so comfort food is the perfect remedy. I like to serve this with peas or runner beans. Quite traditional really!
- 500gms lean mince beef (5% fat)
