Plans? Stay warm inside, sleep in some, play with the cats, and eat turkey. :)

Please. Parmesan is a French bastardization of the true word Parmigiano ... and Parmigiano Reggiano makes Parmesan taste like old socks.

The French steal SO MUCH Italian culture and call it their own ...

At least they did not steal the hot dog, the hamburger and apple pie!

And bacon! Ahh, bacon!

What the heck is cottage pie, and can it be made sugar-free :?:

Isn't that a variant of shepherd's pie, only with beef instead of lamb (hence the name "shepherd's pie")?

"Shepherd's pie" I've made before. Although when I was living in Great Britain and Ireland, I
noticed they make the potato topping chunky style. I whip mine.

That's because you have taste.

That's my Italian side. The German and Japanese blood had nothing to do with it. :[]]

As stated above, it is a variation of Shepherd's Pie. I was taught the recipe by my friend's British mum....but it's absolutely NON-traditional. I use ground beef, onion, a bit of garlic powder, sweet & spicy BBQ sauce, a bit of A-1 (or HP if you use that) . You brown the beef and onion, then add the rest....then dump in and stir cheddar cheese into it (lots). You can also add mushrooms or veggies at this point but we prefer ours on the side. You toss it into a casserole dish and top the whole thing with mashed potatoes. Then you put the whole thing into a 375 degree oven and bake until the mixture starts bubbling up around the edges.

As I said...lovely comfort food. *s*
