Shepherd's Pie Time?

I watch the weather around the country and see snow and rain falling all over - except here.  But it's not going to stop me making some warm comfort food, making the most of a mild chill in the air, and pretending I can hear the wonderful sound of rain.  Oh, to be in Ireland where the fields are green and showers plentiful. That's the life for me!

Anyway, thinking of Ireland, it's time for Shepherd's Pie but done my way - can't even call it Australian, just my own personal adaption with things I have on hand. Please take my recipe and adjust it to make it yours!  That's the joy for me as an author.
