    No worries.
    Trying to explain to my seven year old the differences between cottage and shepherds pie is hard, especially when he asks why there isn’t any pastry but it’s called a pie.
    My recipe is actually for a ragu to be used in bolognaise but then I just cover it with mash. And if I added chilli to it and served with rice then we have another dish as well.

    People who do not like both peas and baked beans should be culled from the population, or at least sterilised, to prevent their abhorrent mutations from polluting the gene pool.

    Does it matter which peas? I love processed but can’t eat garden or mushy.

    I'm sorry, that is not an adequate defence.

    Oh well, I’m for it then. Sorry to say I have already procreated as well, and he doesn’t like peas (or beans).

    I put carrots in it and also if I’ve got mushrooms that need using up they go in too, chopped up minutely small. You can’t taste them in it but it’s extra veg which is an added benefit.

    I’ve never put peas in it but we have garden peas with it, that’s the rule. (Our rule, not everybody else’s rule).

    I think once a month we should have a forum cook off!

    Where we all make the same meal (our own family recipe way!) And share with everyone else!

    Edit to add - could you wait until I've moved house as I feel living in a van gives me an unfair disadvantage!

    I'll start with cheese on toast. I might add onion if I want to be fancy

    First dish should be something hard, start with the bar very high. Then if we all make a pigs ear of it we can then go to something easy and say we have improved 1000% from the last dish.

    I like both, but not baked beans with cottage pie, that's just plain wrong!

    According to my Mum, as a small child, I would eat anything put in front of me, even veggies.Then I started school. She said I became a very fussy eater after that.
