I know that for sure, because I made the first Shepherds Pie of the year! YES! The cold weather has come! Good-bye stinking 40 degree days where all I can make for dinner is some sort of bloody salad. I cannot tell you how much we love Shepherds Pie. It's slightly ridiculous. I get quite excited about it.
Cold weather means real serious cooking. Something bubbling away on the stove for hours. I've been waiting for this since last Winter!
