Cooking at 9 months pregnant.

I think its a little odd that I cook more lately than ever in my life. Of course Im usually making my same top 3 meals but that still counts. So tonight Im going to share my recipe for my favorite easy peasy meal!

Shepards Pie

prep time:15 min

Cook time:20 minutes


1-1.5 pounds ground beef, cooked and drained.

1 cup of frozen pea’s and carrots

1 cup frozen corn

1 package shepards pie gravy, prepared as directed.

2 packages instant mashed potatoes, prepared as directed.

Shredded marble cheese

6 ingredients, I base my recipes to keep or try based on how few ingredients it has. In a large skillet, brown and drain your ground beef. Microwave your veggies as it cooks. Add your prepared gravy and cooked pea’s, carrots and corn to meat mixture. Simmer on low till gravy thickens. In a second large pot prepare your potatoes as directed. You can go nicer and actually make mashed potatoes, as I did on the first couple times, but at 9 months pregnant these instant potatoes sure make a good time difference, and taste just as good!

Now layer your meat mixture into a casserole dish, and potatoes on top. This is normally where I add marble cheese, but we were out today so I just threw some seasoning salt on top. Pop it into the oven at 350 for 20 minutes. And voila! Yummy filling dinner. Best part is yummy left overs tomorrow!

Sawyer is basically bumping my computer off my tummy as I type this, so he must have enjoyed it too!
