We are continually trying to outdo each other in our cooking. Makes for exciting and different midnight dinners. We've actually had 4 course meals at work. He grew up in Poland and cooks Polish dishes for me, I just throw things together and he loves everything I cook!

Tonight (Aug 10th) we're eating Cumberland Pie, a delicious pie of ground beef, finely chopped carrots and caramalized onions, topped with creamy mashed potato. I made a large oven pan of it but it didn't sell, so we're tucking into it later tonight.

It's raining now, perfect weather for comfort food. For dessert I think it's rhubarb crumble and "Creme Anglaise", just another word for plain old custard, but made with heavy cream, a split vanilla pod and some magic that only mum knows how. ;)

That sounds like what we call "Cottage Pie" on this side of the pond. I wish it were cool and rainy here--just hot 100+ and dry.

Not quite, though cottage pie is made with beef, Cumberland pie is a traditional English dish made of two layers. The bottom layer is usually some meat and vegetables (like beef and carrots) and the top layer consists of mashed potato. Some northern cooks put pickle in the recipe, whereas others use sausage meat or some kind of pork in. Altogether a very nice recipe though.

Moreover, my Cumberland pie has an extra top layer of fine crunchy breadcrumbs (sourdough but, whatever's available), grated Davidstowe Cheddar and dotted with pieces of butter.

Oink oink, we pigged the lot!
