DAY 18: dinner

Tonight I made shepherds pie with sweet potatoes instead of potatoes. Sweet potatoes have more nutrients than regular potatoes plus more flavor!

All you do is boil one sweet potato with 3 cloves garlic until tender.
While that is cooking, pour some oil in a pan and cook two chopped celery, one chopped carrot, one chopped yellow onion and cook for five minutes. Add chopped string beans and frozen peas. Add 1/4 cup chicken broth, one tablespoon tomato paste, salt and a teaspoon thyme. Simmer for five minutes.
Drain the sweet potatoes and mash it with milk, salt and pepper.
Pour the vegetables into a baking dish and top it with the mashed sweet potatoes.
Put it into a 400 degree preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes!
