  1. That's a good one for starters followed by apple pie and custard or creamy rice pudding!

    1. Just the right time of year for it - autumnal food at its best.

    1. You're not going to believe this - but I have never eaten macaroni cheese - must rectify that.

  7. Looks delicious! Shepherd's pie: the first time I heard of it and learned to prepair it was a long time ago, when I was in Southampton as an 'au pair' 45 years ago.

    1. I always think of Shepherds Pie as typically British food - do you still make it?

  8. Now then, that is just naughty as I am now craving shepherds pie. It's autumn and therefore this comfort food is a necessity! Shepherds pie followed by a lamb hot pot. Perfect! xx

    1. No - lamb hot pot doesn't make my list I'm afraid.

  9. Ooooooh! Now you've post that I'd have to agree, although mine is made with quorn. Of late I've been mixing the potato with cauliflower and it really is gorgeous, so fluffy and light.xxxx

    1. Oo that sounds nice will give that a try. I sometimes add leeks and cheese on top of the mash for a change.

  10. We have shepherd's pie (made with a dash of Worcestershire sauce) all year round, but this time of year it's at its best - with sprouts. Lovely! We also add parsnip mash to the potato topping sometimes.
    But in autumn I also have thoughts of pumpkin and butternut squash...
    Looking forward to your next warm and cosy post :)

    1. My husband isn't a big fan of parsnips or squash, too sweet for him, so plain potatoes maybe with cheese are the limited options.

  11. It looks scrummy! Sadly for my waistline my comfort food of choice is chocolate!!

    1. chocolate doesn't do it for me I'm afraid

  12. That looks lovely. My favourite would probably be cauliflower cheese :-)

    1. Oo - I'd forgotten about cauliflower cheese - one of my favourites too

  13. I make meat & vegetarian pies like this for colder evenings. Like you, I love all the creamy mash potato under a crunchy top, especially with melted cheese.
    I think my favourite comfort food is fruit pies and crumbles.

    1. Anything eaten with custard would go on my list too.

  14. Hmmm. Just tried to post a comment and got an error message. Let's try again.
    Your creamy mashed potatoes look delicious! So many comforting foods to choose from, but if I had to choose one, it'd be pho.
