Shepherd's Pie and life lessons and talking out of my ass
Sort of Shepherd's Pie. I've heard of lamb, goat or beef or ox in this. I used ground pork. See, my mother in law was kind enough to deliver a few packages of the minced swine to us so we are grateful. Nothing to really explain here and nothing elaborate. Ground pork with root vegetables, peas and a mashed potato topping with sprinkled millet flakes. Yes i still have not used up the bag of millet. I did use a concoction of wasabi, soy sauce and maple syrup with some paprika for the seasoning. I often substitute Kikkoman for salt in certain dishes.
The truth is, aside from the budgeting issue there's the time issue. That is for cooking and posting. This is reality. I would love to cook all day, paint all day and write all day, but I have a family. I'm job hunting. I'm not always the Heady Pepper. Sometimes I'm just plain old Heady. Or Head. Or just plain He. I am he as you are he as you are me. No. Nobody dropped acid into my mash. Just a little association game.
I guess that leaves me (and you) with this realization - I don't always cook fancy tancy dishes. I'm removing my mask now. The truth is I wanted to post more and not just when I make something out of this world. It's like when I make some nice sketches and throw the crap ones in my pocket so no one can see. Life is about hit and miss I'm learning. I suppose life is kind of like shepherd's pie. No it's not. It just is what it is right?
