For when Misery and Remorse Strike...

From time to time a hangover will strike with an all-mighty power, like a few Sunday's ago. This was a good night... with bad decisions. We shan't go in to it. But the next day proved to be a day filled with weeping and regret, and something delicious and easy for dinner was gravely needed: a meaty cottage pie, topped with mustard mash and a bubbling layer of cheese - and with a good slop 0f baked beans on the side.
Just the thing for when chewing anything besides an easy-to-swallow mush seems like too great a task.

Cottage Pie

Extra Lean/ Lean mince
1 Onion, chopped finely
A good glug of red wine (a glassful should do it)
A cup (mug or whatever) of vegetable or meat stock
A dousing of lea and perrins worchester sauce gives a great flavour
You can use Bisto gravy granules to thicken if you wish

Fry off the mince with the chopped onion: add the wine, some stock and gravy. Leave to thicken and reduce. While this is happening you should be preparing your potatoes.

For the Mashed Potato:

Simply boil as per and mash with salt, pepper, milk, butter and wholegrain mustard. Top with a sprinkling of cheese, and put in the oven for about 25 mins at 180.

* This is especially good served with Heinz baked beans whilst listening to '60s Sunday' on Radio Gold.
