Oooh, that picture makes me hungry for Shephard's Pie.

gonna admit +80% o' the time we consider making shepherd's pie, we end up making cottage pie. we use yukon gold instead o' russet and am perhaps a bit heavy-handed on the worcestershire pour. 

HA! Good Fun!

Do you eat the pumpkin as well? I would think the skin would not be enjoyable, but I don't see pumpkin served like this often.

Indeed, it was liberally seasoned with a mediterranean salt and spice mixture, and generally you're right, pumpkin skins are too tough to eat but that's the nice part about Hokkaido pumpkins. The skin is really soft and edible, making it ideal to take the pumpkins, cut the top off, hollow them out and stuff them to your liking. :)

Or use them for whatever else you want. No need to peel. Every now and then we just cut them into slices, salt them, add some olive oil and roast them until they're soft (you can add other herbs if you want: thyme, rosemary, oregano, majoram... whatever floats your fancy, really).

If you go in a Chinese take out joint and don't see a single Asian face.... don't order. The place in Millington used spaghetti noodles for lo mien. Not joking

Rump steak last night with potatoes and a blue cheese sauce, it was delicious¬†ūü•©

I have worked out the best way to cook a thick steak if you dont have  a grill because I always prefer grilling and barbequing  meat over a fire but we only allowed gas cookers in the flats I stay in 

You seal the steak on the outside in a hot frying pan and then cook the meat in an oven at about 180 Celsius for 20 minutes. It works well and cooks the steak consistently without burning it than can occur in  a frying pan

This may be blasphemous, but I kinda prefer frying pan steak to grilled steak. :blush:

Right on, burnt to a crisp on the outside and bloody rare on the inside. Can't get any better than that.

Plus, to get even more blasphemous... you do have the basis for nice gravy in that frying pan. Yep. :yes:

You guys probably use ketchup on them too. :p 

I almost never use catsup (I just wanted to spell it the other way), not even on hotdogs or fries. Hotdogs get mustard or chili & cheese, fries get salt & pepper.

I love a good bark on a rare to medium-rare steak (depending on thickness)

Ever since I was old enough to order my own steaks not well done, because most of my family is weird about meat that still has any moisture left in it, I've found that I almost never need any kind of sauce.

^  That's why I like electric ovens (gas ranges are fine).  Broiling a steak a few inches away from the heat element coil makes a tasty steak in no time (flip it over once or twice). 

...but maybe some gas ovens have this kind of capability these days, I have no idea. Although I think I'd still prefer the way the coil caramelizes fat/meat vs. gas oven flame, if gas BBQ's are any indication (there's this gas flavor...).  I'd like a gas-range/electric oven combo some day - but they're pretty expensive, whether in a "single unit" or installed separately, and it's not a priority. :)

...never liked pan-fried steak.  Except maybe when camping and it's over a fire in a cast iron pan, and because everything is better when you're utterly starving camping.

Just to clarify, the sealing of the meat means you can achieve a chargrilled outside ...more or less 

But yes the oven cooking means it wont be very rare. I dont grill meat in the oven but cook it for a period of time and you can achieve very rare in the oven, you just keep in for maybe 5-7  minutes,  but then I would just a frying pan to achieve that result

 Oh yes I love my steak sauces but they must be really complimentary like cheese, mushroom or cheese whizz

So I was buying some (shelled) walnuts for the squirrels and realized that in all my life, in the common stores around where I live, I have never seen bags of "salted" walnuts. They are always raw or still in the shell.  Not including candied/baked in goods versions, I mean.  Peanuts, almonds, cashews, pistachios, seeds, others - all have many roasted and salted (and flavored) types in cans and bags as well as raw. But not walnuts. I mean, I've never looked very hard for such, mind, but offhand never see them sitting next to all the other wal/nuts in stores.

I looked online and apparently there are "roasted and lightly salted" walnuts ... now I must order some to find out what they taste like.

welsh rarebit

for all intents and purposes, were nothing more than a grilled cheese sandwich but with welsh rarebit am able to extra load the cheese. am gonna embrace any excuse for more cheese in a recipe.

we oven toasted thick cut sourdough making sure both sides were toasted. ordinarily we use rye bread, but we did not have rye bread and we were not gonna make rye bread.

is not traditional, but we were throwing on a slice o' tomato for each piece o' bread. 'cause.

too bad we do not drink, 'cause this woulda' been perfect with guinness as were a fair amount o' guinness in the cheese sauce.

HA! Good Fun!

Absolutely love Welsh Rarebit but you cannot call it that if you dont stick to the traditional recipe and there is a proper recipe 

So what you made was " Gromnirs Welsh Rarebit"  not " Welsh Rarebit "  ;) And a good brown beer does add to the overall taste but its not mandatory

Some variation of a cottage pie. Wife was disappointed there was no dough.

Interesting, I never knew cottage pie had dough but rather mash ? What was the substitute you used for mash potato ?
