What to Eat Wednesday - Super Simple Shepherd's Pie

What to Eat Wednesday

This recipe is one of those recipes where I know I'm not going to get an argument from anyone in the family, and some nights that's super important.

Like more important than what you're actually serving for dinner.

The kids have been in school for 2 days now, and this year is special for us, because my Small Fry is a kindergartner. My big guy is a 4th grader, so this school thing is old hat for him. We've encountered some new challenges with both of them being in school.

Mix in new school challenges and old dinner time challenges and dinner was a trial in patience on our first day. I was not going to repeat that.

Enter our go to Shepherd's Pie. Our pie was inspired by Taste of Home's Simple Shepherd's Pie, but I had to adjust the recipe to fit our family and what groceries I usually have on hand.
