How good does a pie taste when the weather is cooling down? I like to serve these cottage pies in ramekins as individual serves, but you also make a larger pie in a baking dish if you prefer or don’t have ramekins. Homemade muesli bars are also on the snack menu for quick lunch boxes now school is back. This week we are doubling the meat mix for the Cottage pie and the Puttanesca pasta. We are also using some food banked meals from week 24, reducing your cooking load to only 4 meals from scratch this week, plus some sides, and a leftovers meal.
