Shepherds in Space

For our weekly Friday night Dance Central party I wanted a dinner that was easy, delicious and healthy, plus something I could trick kids into eating. I decided to go with a veggie shepherd’s pie, but I couldn’t; find a recipe I liked so I kind of winged it and made up my own. I was really worried it would be gross but it turned out SO delicious! I didn’t take any pictures of it looking pretty, but I did take a nice picture of it all mangled up.

Veggie Pie Guts

The filling contains:
-1 yellow onion
-3 carrots
-3 celery stalks
-1 small green pepper
-1/2 cup of corn kernels
-1/2 cup shelled edamame
-1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
I cut everything that needed cutting fairly roughly, defrosted the corn & edamame, and sautéed it all in a pan with olive oil, soy sauce, a ton of pepper and a little paprika. It went into a 1½ quart casserole dish and topped it with fancy mashed potatoes, and topped those with grated parmesan. I baked it at 350°F for 30 minutes and THEN I DIED FROM YUMMINESS. I was particularly thrilled with the topping: I mixed russet, yukon gold and purple potatoes with a little butter and 4 cloves of garlic.

Does that not look amazing? It tasted amazing too, even Sym and her friend were on board and they hate green peppers (both), tomatoes (Sym’s friend) and onions (Sym).

In other news, I’m planning a crafternoon to make space clothes next weekend!

Space Shirt Crafternoon

I think it’ll be really fun, hopefully it isn’t a bust! If it’s a success I might plan more crafternoons in the future.
