#Recipe: Shepherd's Pie Soup

I am a huge fan of Shepherd's Pie having British heritage. It is a dish my grandfather and mother made often as I was growing up.
Now you may know by now, if you are a regular reader, what a soup nazi I am.
'No soup for you!'
Actually I love making soups, for everyone. My slow cooker and dutch oven are my best friends, and help me out a lot.
So with the love of Shepherd's Pie and the love of soup, how about a mash-up?!

Shepherd's Pie Soup

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp of fresh thyme
  • 450 g of extra lean ground beef, raw (the $5 pack)
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 1 rib of celery, diced
  • 3 white potatoes, large, cut in small chunks
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 900ml package of beef broth
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of frozen peas
METHOD:
In Dutch oven or deep, large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. SautĂ© onion, garlic and thyme until onion is soft. (About 2 minutes.) 
Add beef, carrot, celery, and potatoes and cook until meat is no longer pink. Make sure to break up beef in bite size chunks when cooking. This takes about 3-5 minutes.
Stir in tomato paste, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce and cook until it thickens slightly. About 2 minutes.
Add broth, pepper, salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender. This takes about 6-8 minutes. Stir in peas and cook about 1-2 minutes more. 
Serve hot.

**Serving suggestion: Add warm Ciabatta loaves to the meal. 

Serves 2-4

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
