After a long day at work, I made a Veggie shepherd's pie with sweet potato mash. It tasted amazing and was great comfort food! :)

Thanks! I know a normal shepherd's pie should have minced lamb but my sister, who came back home from uni, is she's vegetarian so made it with soya mince and quorn mince. It was the first time making it and I think it went really well. :)

^ I always feel fruit is better in cake than on it. :D Next time consider shredding the fruit up into smaller bits and baking it throughout, or maybe all piled in the centre? :keke:

There's a bakery in Mississauga that my grandmother always got apricot merengue tortas from for birthdays. :drool:


Earlier this week I made a Thai massaman curry with Quorn and sweet potato that tasted delicious but literally damaged my lips due to the capsaicin concentration. :lol:

And this evening we had (vegetarian) bangers and (garlic-buttered, whey-enriched) mash, with steamed green beans and vegetable gravy.

I actually did both, too. In addition to the fruits on top of the cake, I added fruits such as banana, desiccated coconut and dried fruits such as raisins into the cake mixture. And sandwiched between the two layers of the sponge cake, I put a layer of cream and mixed fruits like apples and nashi pears. I did say I used any leftover fruits/ingredients for the cake. :lol:

I wanted to describe it as a fruit filled cake topped with fruits, last night, but I couldn't find the right words and fruit filled didn't sound correct.

I should of took a pic last night when I cut a piece out, as the majority of the cake been demolished now :lol:
But here's how it's looked/looks, I only made the cake for fun but was slightly upset when I tasted it last night and it felt/tasted dense, but just tried the cake again and it's actually okay, not dense at all, and delicious. :)

I'm currently making jerky. I can't wait for it to be done. I kinda cheated this time and bought a Jack Daniels marinade but nonetheless I'm still excited.

unpopular opinion but easy to make kit meals (hamburger helper, sidekicks etc) always taste good to me.

You can also cook the pasta now and then put it in the fridge, then reheat it along with the sauce (when I do pasta bakes I prepare the sauce and pasta together then let it chill and pop it in the over when we actually get hungry). Cooling and then reheating starchy foods turns some of the starch into semi-indigestible resistant starch, which acts essentially as if it's fibre in the digestive system.
