When I was growing up Monday was traditionally the big wash day, and it would seem my dear mum spent most of the day washing sheets, towels - you name it and it was washed. The washing lines in the garden were full and if it wasn't sunny, or at least dry weather, the washing went on lines and 'clothes horses' around the house. Growing up we did have routine in our house and Monday was always wash day. Shopping was done almost every day, for the fresh foods that were used in my mums good home cooking and baking. I don't think she ever complained about the Monday wash, Of course life is different now with the many electrical devices available to assist with the weekly chores.
I can remember we very often had a cottage or shepherds pie on Mondays, the left over meat from the Sunday Roast would be minced up, onions and carrots, some gravy added plus mashed potato on top. My mum always used to add milk and butter to her mashed potato and it did taste good. Nowadays, whenever I make a Cottage or Shepherds Pie instead of potato I use mashed swede always with butter added ... if she were here I think mum would have loved it.
Here below is what my LCHF recipe idea for Shepherds Pie looks like. You just use the standard recipe but substitute the mashed potato with mashed swede, or grated cauliflower. You can also see Pauls's reduced carb Shepherd's Pie here and more Low Carb recipe ideas here
