Classic Shepherd's Pie, Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Classic Shepherd's Pie-
Since I had today off work, I did a little baking and sewing. I never ate lamb until a few years ago. Once I tried a lamb sandwich made with local grass fed meat, I was hooked! I ate it at Bar Gernika, featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. Lamb is (to me) still very expensive. I finally decided to try some ground lamb. I was going to do a Greek lamb burger, but didn't have a few ingredients on hand. So I did this Classic Shepherd's Pie instead. I subbed chicken stock for beef, and used frozen peas and carrots. Since I added extra veggies I used an oval casserole, since I didn't want dinner all over the bottom on the oven. Here's the picture coming out-
Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies-
I love these in the winter, they're great with a cup of something hot. A real adult cookie with the steel cut oats! The recipe is here: Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Do yourself a favor- do NOT sub rolled oats for this. The steel cut oats really make the cookie!!! I always make a double batch since it a small one.
