As much as I love being outdoors, the wind and rain combined just makes me want to hibernate. I couldn’t think of a better accompaniment to a chilly evening than a big bowl of leek and potato soup!
Roast potatoes are great with so many different dishes and there are lots of different ways to make them compliment your main dish. These rosemary roast potatoes are one of my favourites.
I always used to associate Cottage Pie with school dinners. The school version wasn’t particularly appetising and I remember it being slopped onto my plate like some sort of punishment was being delivered. The one thing I loved though, was the mashed potato topping, I always hoped for the nice, crispy browned bit of potato. It made the meal so much better!
