Hey yummy mummy,s and daddy,s

There’s nothing like a bit of comfort food after a hectic few days!! It’s just like a big hug. The ultimate comfort food in the yummy household is cottage pie. This one tastes really luxurious with the sweet potato mixed in the topping. With the added bonus of having no butter. My little yum just cleans the plate,, as seen below xwpid-1432240117441.jpg
