Splurging Sunday

With Matt on WW, he usually chooses one splurge day per week where he can enjoy whatever dishes he feels like without the guilt. Today we decided Martha's Shepherd's Pie would fit the bill along with a Lemon Coconut Cake for dessert. We also had a mixed greens salad with goat cheese and Sauteed Cabbage as a side dish. I adapted the Shepherd's Pie recipe by adding some Merlot that we had on hand, and definately gave the dish more depth of flavor than the previous times we have made it. As for the Lemon Coconut Cake, I knew we would have a winner because my mom had fixed it for Sissy's birthday a few years ago and received rave reviews. It did not disappoint!!
