One of my favorite things to order off a menu at restaurants is tender, tasty, mouthwatering beef. Jaryd always laughs at me because I literally CANNOT pass up a piece of juicy meat with a tasty sauce.
So we got Caleb back in swim lessons after a way too long hiatus following Nolan’s birth. Caleb slowly progressed from
the child on the side screaming a timid little fish to completely doggie paddling independently with a noodle wrapped around him. I awarded him most improved. Well, I had a moment. I have these moments in my life that I do something and decide I will never do them again.
First let me tell you that I was all set to share a different recipe with you, but then I made this and I couldn’t wait. I ate it for dinner, put the kiddos down for bedtime, and went straight to the computer to type it up. It was THAT good, you guys! I think I need to make this every week on repeat… or find like a million other things to smother with this sauce.
Let me start by saying this isn’t the prettiest recipe I’ve ever made, but man, it was tasty!! I’ve never had shepherd’s pie before. I didn’t even know what it was until my friend (hi Katherine!) offered to make it for me after Nolan was born. It kind of sounded magical. Like, everything I love but all mixed together in one dish.
