It was dark by 5pm. I think I'm coming down with a virus. I have to work tomorrow. The only thing I need (other than some hot honey and lemon, and perhaps a big cuddle) is some comfort food. This cottage pie did just the trick.
Top tip: I didn't have any beef stock, which I would normally use to make cottage pie, so instead I used ready-mix onion gravy. It worked a treat! I also added some thyme and rosemary for freshness, but in general I think this was a great time-saving little idea. And you know what...I'd do it again!
