Busy Day, Good Day, Now Repeat

July 21, 2016

It felt good to get back to work at the Food Truck yesterday. Two weeks is a long time away! It was just a tad hot outside yesterday, but that didn’t seem to keep any customers away. We were super busy, and even though it was HOT HOT HOT outside, people were ordering burgers like crazy!


Breakfast, Blog, Laundry, Food Truck, 3 miles on the Treadmill and then a little down time with Netflix.

For dinner, I made this Shepherd’s Pie that was DELISH!!


I don’t think you can really mess up a Shepherd’s Pie. Sauté lots of veggies, add a little broth and maybe some tomato paste and simmer, add some seasoned cooked meat, stir. Place in a casserole dish, top with mashed potatoes and bake.

For my veggies, I used celery, carrots, onions and green beans. Broth? I used Trader Joe’s Organic Vegetable Broth. Meat? Ground Beef. For the potatoes, I cooked sweet potatoes in the microwave, then scooped out the cooked potato. I added a little crushed garlic and sea salt, mashed it, and spread it over the top. Easy Peasy. Really!

If you would like to follow an exact recipe with some great flavor, check out the Shepherd’s Pie over at Paleo Newbie. All of her recipes taste great and are easy to make.

That’s my day yesterday and I’m bout to do the exact same thing all over again. 

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 6 SP

Steak (leftover Flank Steak) and Egg White Scramble with Bell Peppers topped with thinly sliced Avocado with a Sweet, Juicy Peach!

I packed my lunch to take to the food truck. Chicken Salad made with Whole30 Mayo, a few Sliced Almonds, Grapes, and Cucumbers on a bed of Greens, Carrots and Celery with Almond Butter.

    Okay, if you plan on making the Shepherd’s Pie in your heat, then I don’t feel so odd making it in the dead of summer. Seriously, such a good dinner and plenty of leftovers!

    Keep me posted!


  2. OK That is it!… since the first time you posted a pic of your sheppards pie, I’ve had a little sticky note on my desk: “get womw (that’s you) recipe for sheppards pie” that note is all dusty now (not due to my housekeeping of course, ALL due to fact that we live in the desert… wink, wink) but this is it, I have all the ingredients in the house – I am making this for me THIS WEEKEND! It looks SOOOO good. ronda

    Sometimes I really like an “errand day”. Keeps me outta the house and less apt to snack! 🙂

    Maybe you can road trip to us and have a Burger!! lol

  4. The shepherd’s pie does look tasty.
    I’m repeating work day but not at school.
    Need to get materials for projects so I’m off to Michaels, Targets, and of course getting a meal. No food trucks around where I’m going–ugh.
    They do have them around downtown Cincinnati and I’ll have to try them one day–you peaked my interest.
