Shepherds pie has many variations, this is my family’s gluten and dairy free version. It is a great easy dinner recipe that is ready in under an hour from start to finish, less if you are using leftover potatoes.
If I had to pick one food to eat for the rest of time it would be pasta. I love pasta of all kinds, but spaghetti and meatballs, that age-old classic, will always have a special place in my heart. Add some extra crusty bread and a nice glass of red--Buon Appetito!
These three friends in the American Southwest desert, the jackrabbit, the desert tortoise, and the javelina all want to have a picnic like they see all the tourists doing. So, they harvest their favorite desert plants from their surroundings, and enjoy a roadside picnic jam, with the javelina on mandoline :)
When Dad had a new deck built at the farm, we celebrated with a picnic! If you ignore all the chores associated with farm life, Dad had an idyllic life: fresh vegetables every day (that he started from seed - I can still smell the dirt baking from sterilizing), a cutting garden that he actually used (I "could" pick my flowers any time I want to!), and the best view (first the pond, then the sheep pen and beyond to the gardens and fruit trees). In fact, other than this inaugural day, we tried to never sit with our back to the yard. Dad was also the first person I know who mixed herbs with his annuals, so a supply of parsley, etc. was always available to add to your plate. You simply had to know that the ornamental peppers were just that! And, we started every meal with a toast to the farm: Via Via!
