Question of the Day

What’s your favorite comfort food?

Hands down, mine is mashed potatoes. Which, as it happens, is currently cooking on my stove, as part of one of Mr. Shakes’ favorite Scottish meals—mince and tatties. Otherwise known as ground beef with onions and mushrooms, spiced with Worcestershire, pepper, and nutmeg, dished over mashed potatoes, served up with a pint. He’ll be as happy as a pig in shit—always my goal with Friday dinner, a savory little reminder of his home, whether it’s mince and tatties or fish and chips with beans and ketchup.

One day I really will do a haggis…but not tonight.
