Thanks, everyone!  I think that the next time I make it, ill wilt the kale first. It was a little crunchy where it poked through the potatoes and around the edge of the pan. And, I put 3-4 potatoes in the recipe, which is good, because I only actually used 2 (I forgot that I had used one), and it definitely needed more potatoes Smiley

I have been crafting all afternoon! While I arrived later than I planned, I cooked a batch of chili (can I fit that into a prompt?), and prepped a bunch of fabric for sewing tomorrow. I also planned out a couple of items to cut with my Silhouette on Tuesday afternoon. So, in a few days, I'll have several projects to post!

ETA: While I didnt get everything done on my list, I made really good progress! Im hoping that I can finally get caught up on comments on Tuesday, after I make it through 45 parent conferences! Then, over the Thanksgiving weekend, I can get some of my own projects posted.

I definitely have been struggling with crafting in this round! I do have a craft weekend coming up, and I might get some crafty time when Im away for Thanksgiving. Plus, I am hoping to finish a big project for someone by the end of the month.

I do have 3 completed projects, but I might have to shuffle projects and prompts, as well as swapping out a few things entirely! It didnt help that I got a bad cold that knocked me down for over a week.

Im hoping to maximize my time this weekend. Im taking an online class, and while I work on it on Friday,  Im planning to cook a batch of chili for Saturday lunch at craft weekend, so I dont interrupt my crafting time!

Thank you! And, Im almost out of them, so I need to make a new batch. This time, Im going to use cotton thread. And, I can use the giant paper cutter at school to speed things up!

Prompt: October Battle- Mashup
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Engineering, Community
Project Name: Comfort Food Mashup- Kale Soup Shepherd's Pie
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453613.0
Brief Description: In classic mashup fashion, I took the ingredients for a favorite soup (Kale Soup) and cooked them together in the style of another childhood favorite, Shepherd's Pie. And, I also mashed the potatoes Smiley

9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Comfort Food Mashup- Kale Soup Shepherd's Pie on: October 31, 2017 07:29:14 PM
Growing up, once I hit about age 11, I was in charge of a lot of the cooking at home. One of my favorite meals to make was Shepherd's Pie, and because we lived in an area that had a lot of Portuguese immigrants, Kale Soup soon became another favorite. After my mom gave me some ground linguica, I thought it might be interesting to blend these two recipes together... sort of...

Kale Soup Shepherd's Pie

1 lb. ground linguica
1 can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
3-4 potatoes
1 bunch of kale
1 medium onion, diced
Small amount of milk (and butter, if desired) for making mashed potatoes

Peel and cut the potatoes, and put them in a pot of water to boil. While the potatoes are cooking, cook the ground linguica and onions in a skillet until the onions are translucent. Dump the meat/onion mixture into a 13" X  9" baking dish. Rinse and chop the kale and spread it on top of the meat mixture. Layer the kidney beans on top. Drain and mash the potatoes with a bit of milk (and butter), and spread the mashed potatoes on top. Dot with additional butter, if desired. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes until the top of the potatoes are lightly browned and the dish is heated through.

I had a serving tonight for dinner, and it was pretty good! I expect that, after a night in the fridge, it'll taste even better, as Shepherd's Pie and Kale Soup usually do Smiley
