Whats For Dinner Next Week: Irish Cottage Pie

Do you want me to warm your coffee, oh here try this new coffee cake I baked it early this morning.   Did you see how much food we had at  Full Plate Thursday you should  bring a dish and join the fun we would love to see you here. Now lets get busy on this weeks menu. My Dad's family was Irish and my Grandmother made this Irish Cottage Pie when I was a young girl. I have changed the recipe some but it always reminds me of my Grandparents, sure hope you enjoy it.
