Make this and your family will love you.....I promise! Seasoned ground beef with peas and carrots with a topping of Yukon Gold mashed potatoes. What more can I say. This is a one dish meal that pleases everyone.
The recipe comes from Food Network chef Danny Boome.

Now, back to my Shepherd's Pie.
Who wants a bite?
Mom's Cooking Club Lesson: Per Wikipedia, the term Shepherd's Pie, also called Cottage Pie, dates back to the 1870's. Early cookbooks show that Shepherd's Pie was made using leftover roasted meat with a bottom and top crust of mashed potatoes. With a recipe dating that far back, you know it's going to be a great comfort meal.
