Cosy Cottage Pie

For the cottage pie, I actually made the portion to serve six purely so that I could freeze the leftovers into Sophie-sized portions and use for the week for dinners. If I’m honest, I think that the use of vegetable stock instead of a beef gravy made it quite sloppy, and I could really taste the cinnamon on the meat. I didn’t like the cinnamon but I have to keep in mind that for children, it would be a sweeter meal. So for me, I would take out the cinnamon and swap the stock. However, I would have also kept the stock in favour of pork mince instead which is softer! Anyway, I hope you like this, Sophie definitely did! Enjoy!

Sophie’s mashed down portion!
Sophie really enjoyed the pie and chocolate mousse shared with Daddy for afters. Not sure it works as a shampoo though!
