Crazy Weather, Shepherds Pie and Happy Friday!

First of all it from freezing cold to 80 pretty much over night and I can't say I am terribly unhappy about that, it surely was nice to go trick n treating in warm weather. I can't say my owl or hubby was thrilled about the warm up. She was a cat wearing a velvet long sleeve dress with hood and boas and he was Garfield.  I think they both enjoyed their costumes better the previous weekend when it was 60. They were both good sports and we had a blast last night.  Unfortunately the warm weather is not here to stay, cold front coming in tonight and tomorrow we are back in the 60's.  boo-hoo!

So I have the left over chili and a 10 pound bag of red potatoes I desperately need to use.  I figured I would combine the two, for tonight's dinner.  So you ask WHAT'S FOR DINNER?

Shepherds Pie


So here is what you'll need:

Left over chili
1 can of corn drained
1 can of peas or lima beans drained
