I am so excited, I found a wonderful rendition of a recipe I've been looking for for years. It's called Shepherds Pie and it's absolutely delicious.When I was a teen-ager, my aunt and uncle lived very near to us. She would make this pie then call and invite my sister and I down to help her and my uncle eat it. We loved it and looked forward to her making it. I think you'll enjoy it too. I found the recipe on Menu Musisings of a Modern American Mom/  by Julie May
