Long story short. Moving soon so just using up all food we have in fridge freezer and cupboard before we go.
So tonight is shepherds pie. I'm not going to buy any extra ingredients either. I usually have it with a side of veg or salad but were out of salad and I'm not looking to do veg because ds won't eat that and prob won't eat the Shepard's pie either come to think of it!
Aibu to serve with chips?

It’s got potato on it already, Shepard’s pie & chips is a bit weird grin

Baked beans?

Baked beans and tinned tomatoes

Normally have it with peas. Double potatoes with chips. If I went with chips I would make sure the loads of gravy

Baked beans or peas. Definitely not chips.

i put everything in it, carrots, sometimes peas, or beans ...never peas and beans though, that would be crazy.

cottage/shepherds pie and chips is very 1980s pub dinner!

Maybe peas but I don't normally have anything else with it.

But leeks & cheese on the top a la Delia rocks!

Normally garden peas. I love shepherds pie with beans but the rest of the family look at me like I've just suggested shit with sugar on whenever I suggest it! 😂

Beans???!!! Blah.

Peas here, or green beans. Broccoli sometimes, but I don't like it much. It has carrots in it already, and sweet potato mixed into the mash.

Peas and lashings of gravy

Peas and carrots.

Roast pots and green beans

anitagreen Fri 02-Nov-18 16:00:39

My grandfather has broccoli and something else maybe carrots but meh I prefer beans and toms

Nothing, I put all the veg in it! Anything from mushrooms, onion, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots all go in with the mince and gravy, it's a great way to disguise lots of veg.

Peas or green cabbage

INeedNewShoes Fri 02-Nov-18 16:05:43

Something green: kale, spring greens, broccoli

E20mom Fri 02-Nov-18 16:06:32

On its own or with peas.

bigbluebus Fri 02-Nov-18 16:08:26

Pickled red cabbage.

gilmoregal Fri 02-Nov-18 16:09:18

Always carrots usually spring greens or cabbage too.

Salad is weird imo and chips is too carb heavy

Dogsorlogs Fri 02-Nov-18 16:09:59

Peas and gravy

IWouldLikeToKnow Fri 02-Nov-18 16:11:11

Usually some sort of green vegetables in this house

Chips and peas
