I have to say that it's been a lovely day! We did have a downpour for a little while, and I heard rolling thunder for well over an hour while the sun was shining. But now it's quiet and gorgeous. I've been prepping veggies for a while. I'm making my Shepherd's Pie but with sweet potatoes. Everything has now been cooked and I just have to put it all together and bake it for a while. I'm SO hungry! I had a couple of eggs for breakfast this morning. I made them sunnyside up but added onions and peppers for more flavor. I toasted some multi grain bread that I got from the food bank and it was a great breakfast. But that was almost 7 hours ago, so I guess I need to eat something! lol Hope your weekend is going well! -Claudia- image from pixabay

Shepherd's pie sounds good! My youngest daughter was here for lunch and she is still on antibiotics so can't eat well. I made potato soup with tuna in it and she ate a whole bowl full so that was good. I am having leftovers for dinner. I can go several hours without eating, but once I eat, its all over!

mmm your soup sounds wonderful! I normally don't go this long between eating but I guess the heat has been keeping me drinking ice water so much that I just didn't feel hungry! The good news is that I never went to take a nap like I normally would have. The sleep plan is working!

I have never had Shepherds Pie with sweet potatoes. It sounds good.

Shepherd's Pie sounds really good. I haven't had it in a while and I've never had it with sweet potatoes. I get it's good that way.

I enjoy changing up recipes and I've found that this particular recipe tastes (to me) so much better with sweet potatoes. I also make it with ground turkey quite a bit. And that means spicing things up a bit more than I normally would. So the sweet potatoes also lend some much needed flavor there, too.

@CRK109 Using sweet potatoes and ground turkey makes it a lot healthier too.

Mine has been a rainy weekend. Still, it's raining hard while I type this response.

It sounded off looking an unpromising day, but the sun did put in a prolonged appearance and Mr B spent the afternoon snoozing on the window sill. Excellent idea, moggie!

Sounds like an interesting variation using sweet potatoes instead of regular ones for your Shepherd's Pie. Do you pre-cook them and then mash them before adding them with the other ingredients? Maybe you should take a picture sometime and then add it to this or a different post. I'd like to see that. Many of us are always looking for different ways to make things to spice up our palates.
