Cottage pie

Aku managed to get australian minced meat at 50% off kat Jusco. So, instead of paying RM29.90 perkg, I paid RM14.85 only! Yay!! murah sangat2. Aku tak suka makan minced meat ramly sebab sangat banyak lemak. The Aussie minced meat, almost fat free. Of course la, kalau takde lemak langsung, tak sedap la kan? 

Before masuk oven

Rupa wise, memang tak anggun, tapi rasa wise, peh!! memang sedap!! Jadi rebutan kawan2 iman and iffah during recess :)
