Please help oh wise MNers.

I'm looking for some hearty warming tasty meals for dinner to feed two people. It's freezing, lashing and generally miserable here so dinner to comfort and warm. Don't wanna go with the basic of stew so looking for something different and tasty.

Minced beef cobbler. Finely dice and fry an onion, then add a packet of mince, sprinkle over a tablespoon of plain flour and brown the meat. Pour stock over it (think I normally do 3 oxo cubes as needs lots of gravy) and leave to simmer and thicken up. Then make up a packet of Aunt Bessie dumpling mix- they work perfectly every time. Drop the dumplings into the mince and put in the oven for about 20-30 mins. Is amazing served with carrots and peas.
