I was getting on the computer to look for a Shepard's pie recipe! I have some leftover mashed potatoes and fresh green beans and other fresh vegies and thought that might work. So I'll be cooking your recipe up tonight. It's for me and the hubby, so I might bypass the decoration part, but then who knows. It'd be fun!

Sam, Thanks so much for the recipe, it sounds yummy. I'm going to try it next week. I never knew you could make Shepards Pie from ground beef. I've only ever made it with leftover roast of beef that I grind up and therefore we don't have it very often. This way I can make it anytime. :D

Hugs, Pipes
