I thought Canadian-style shepherd's pie/cottage pie was to put sweetcorn in it.

I do half minced lamb and half minced beef, onions, peas and chopped carrots in the meat. Mash made with yellow potatoes and warm milk and butter in the mix and top off with grated cheddar cheese on top.

Cinnamon in the apple and crumble with rolled oats in the topping. Very thick custard piping hot!! totally lush

The signs of age... in your prime it probably would have cleared the monitor.

That's impossible!

Turkey should be eaten at Thanksgiving, and Christmas, and that is about it. I bit of a naff meat in my opinion, but does offer the plus side of feeding you for a week afterward.

I enjoy the Canadians realizing that two turkey meals within 2 months was a little bit extreme, and moved their thanksgiving a bit earlier to compensate for possible overload of turkey.

I don't mean to divert the attention from the OP's original subject but it occurred to me that since I've been living here nobody's invited me and HID over for our tea? We don't smell or anything. I try the best to make friends but this seems a bit stand-offish. Anyone else not been asked over for their tea?

I've never been asked over for tea either. The neighbours do invite us round for tea and biscuits in the morning after the dog walk, but it's not the same as being invited for tea.

We are having lasagne and a salad... Because I am working this evening, it is one that I made a while back and froze (the lasagne not the salad!). Eldest daughter will put it on the oven to cook and make the salad.
