Shepherd’s Pie(my very first attempt):
I always wanted to try Shepherd’s Pie at home each time i see an image or hear on television?..but wasn’t sure how!!!!??but today decided to try it somehow..
And I watched a youtube Video to get the instructions regarding the basic steps involved in it..the one i watched was an awesome video by my favorite Chef-Laura Vitale❤❤!! Do check her youtube channel..
from there, i got the idea of preparing it..and i made changes to the recipe to as per our taste buds with some Indian Spices and removed the wine and all..and thus i had my First Shepherd Pie in life?!!it tasted awesome….
I am taking this to Angie’s Fiesta Friday Party as well..?
