Food: Cottage Pie!
This is my own personal recipe for Cottage Pie so I hope you enjoy it!
What you need:
1lb Ground Beef
1 Onion chopped
2 carrots chopped thin
Spices used: Salt, Pepper, Cumin, Rosemary, Turmeric, garlic powder, Thyme, and Paprika. I never measure spices, so what I recommend is put in what you like.
How to Prepare:
First thing you want to do is chop up your potatoes and get them boiling while you prepare the rest of your meal.
While the potatoes are boiling, chop up your onions and carrots.
Mix all your spices, onions and carrots into a bowl with the ground beef.
With a deep pan put the meat mix together with enough water that covers the mix like a soup.
Brown this on medium high; stir and mash, and add any more spice you may want to the mix. Keep this simmering until ¾ of the water is gone.
Once the potatoes are done, mash them together with some garlic powder, some thyme, 1 egg, and a hefty amount of butter and the milk until the potatoes are fluffy.
When the meat is done put it in a oven safe pot and lay the potatoes on top.
With the oven at 375, you will bake this for 10 minutes or until the top of the potatoes gets a little crisp.
Then you are done!
Beer: Flying Dog Brewery Raging Bitch Belgian IPA
This IPA from Flying Dog is a delicious mix of hops and spice and sour. These flavors mix together beautifully in a way that is so easy to drink (which at 8.3% ABV can be quite dangerous). It is a Hefe meets IPA. I guarantee you will love it.

Available Year Round

Movie: Evil Dead 2
Yeah, horror doesn’t get much better than this. You’ve got gore galore, practical effects, humor, scares, everything you want/need in a good horror film to enjoy. If you haven’t seen this movie, then what is wrong with you? Stop everything and see it now.
If you have, I can’t say anymore because you already know it rocks.
That brings us to a wrap for this addition of Food-Beer-Movie. Thanks for reading and cheers!
