I made the Delia Smith for Waitrose Cottage pie recipe which went down a treat! Sorry I forgot to take a picture when they came out of the oven (I made more than one) and were looking delicious! Personally I loved the addition of leeks on top of the mashed potato but my top tip would be to cover them generously with cheese as some of mine caught slightly, and the addition of cinnamon to the mince mixture gives it a welcome festive twist, although I think you could easily add a handful of mixed veg instead of the swede and carrot the recipe asks for. If you fancy trying it and don't get to Waitrose for the recipe card here is the link.
I was getting a bit fed up with all the Halloween hype, but caved in and bought a pumpkin in the end. It seemed the Trick or Treaters were being shipped in this year with many arriving in their parents cars, which was odd! Long gone are the days when my friends and I came back with bags full of pennies as opposed to lollies!
Thursday saw the obligatory Half Term haircut.....
and we finally went to see one of my favourite James Bond films so far! The way it cuts straight into the movie, then you get the intro with the fantastic theme tune by Adele, which I just can't get out of my head by the way, loved everything about this film!
and Friday saw the courier deliver me some new boots, so half term week ended on a footwear high! Can't wait to take these babies out for a crunchy autumn leaves test drive next week.
Have a great weekend my lovelies xx
