Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie with Cajun Spice

Kindness and compassion. I’ve been thinking about those words a lot over the last few days. Our world, our humanity can use a bit more kindness and compassion right now. I am no politician, and I don’t profess to know the best way to handle what happened in Paris last Friday or all the other atrocities that have happened in Syria, Lebanon, and Kenya. But these events are a stark reminder to me that on a personal level, I should always strive to be kind and to care for others. Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving couldn’t come any sooner.
