I get Sunset Magazine on iTunes and the cover recipe is a pumpkin shepherds pie. As an Irish person and a big fan of comfort food, I love shepherds pie. In looking at the ingredients list – carrots, onions, mushrooms, meat, pumpkin – no problem. This is something I can make here.
Flour – first pick was corn starch. Glad I asked. I confirmed my second selection with the cashier. The wheat on the package was a strong clue I got it right.
Cream – the viscosity upon shaking it seems like cream. The photo of a milk jug looks promising. Didn’t ask.
Broth – I bought a bottle of something that has soup on the front. If not, I can water down the soba sauce from yesterday.
Lamb – no chance. Picked cubed chicken 100 grams for 312 yen.
Parsley – easily identifiable.
My next challenge – measuring. I’m a good enough cook to guess and it’s shepherds pie so it’s pretty easy but my rice cooker measuring cup is mL. Rant about US not conforming to metric in a future blog or paper sizes! Printer always jammed!!!
The bigger challenge – no oven. So tomorrows strategy will be to stove top cook a shepherds pie. I need a rest so I bought an easy dinner for tonight.
