Shepherd's pie.

Here is another post about food instead of about anything else, because food is easier to talk about.

Although FunkyPlaid does an excellent job looking after me, I do not do the best job looking after myself. I have allowed myself to be a bit overrun by deadlines and responsibilities, and haven’t carved out enough time to just sit in one place and not do anything. I even have a China Miéville book on my nightstand that has been sorely neglected.

Because of my mental state, I have been falling back on old recipes for dinner. Not so tonight, when I decided to make Alton Brown’s recipe for shepherd’s pie.

This involved a trip to Waitrose, which I love. It is very posh and has nearly everything … except for a glass baking dish, which we neglected to pack, so I had to do some on-the-fly adjustments.

I was skeptical of these adjustments until most of the hard work had been completed. Then I decided that no matter what happened, I was going to devour it because it smelled so good.

Lucky for us, it tasted good too!

Despite the preponderance of iPhone photos, my dSLR still exists. I just haven’t had the wherewithal to reacquaint myself with it yet. Soon, soon. First there is a glass of wine …

I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
