Ben Never Forgets

For dinner the other evening I made Corn Beef Pie (I will add the recipe as it is yum)
Now this was a slight experiment as the boys have never really taken to this and I decided it was time they tried it again.

Alex ploughed into it along with red sauce and plum sauce.
Me I usually have HP Sauce or Plum Sauce, same as Steve.
Ben took one look at what was on his plate and immediately informed us that this is what we had for lunch when Uncle Peter came to visit in Auckland.

Well blow me down with a feather, how does the boy remember this stuff, because Peter came to lunch when we were fixing the house up to sell, so we are talking June or July last YEAR.
Even I couldn't tell you if that was the last time we had the pie, I could tell you what we had to eat when Peter was there but how did a 4 1/2 yr old remember that.

Man he amazes us sometimes with the things he remembers.
Makes me realise I will have to be very careful what I do when Steve is at work because I think I have a little spy amongst us who will report all back to Steve!

Recipe as promised:

Potato & Corn Beef Wedge

4-5 medium potatos, peeled and cooked
340g can Corn Beef
1-2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup finely chopped spring onions
2 cups grated cheese
4 eggs
1 tbsp hot mustard or wholegrain mustard
ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 180c
Grease and paper line a 23cm loose bottom cake tin
Mix all ingredients together apart from 1/2 cup of cheese
Pile into the greased tin, sprinkle remaining cheese on top
Bake for 45mins. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 mins before turning out.
Slice and serve with salad and sauces/chutney

My husband will love this. Corned beef is one of his very favorites and so putting it in a casserole will make him happy. Sounds good. Thank you!
