This is where all the bread fun has been coming from - a gift from my sweet baby sister. Who, incidentally, is forbidden from turning 30 this summer.

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Shepherd’s Pie

I think its happened more than once. My sister will be attending or hosting an event where vegetarians and sometimes even vegans will be hanging around and she wants to prepare a dish that will appeal to them. And she will also be looking for something more interesting than cut-up sticks of carrots. So she asks me. I have no idea. My salads aren't even vegetarian-friendly. But I came across this recipe the other day for "Sweet Potato and Chickpea Shepherd's Pie" and thought of her and her vegetarian friends. I even went so far as to imagine replacing the small amount of butter and sour cream in the recipe to make her vegan friend happy too. Woo. That was a lot of work. There is no way I have enough energy left to actually make this now, so you try it and let me know how it is.
