Ah, Curtis that last item on the bucket list comment got me laughing out loud. Thank you. How about shepherd's pie? I LOVE that. A restaurant here in FF used to serve it every Friday. Oh my God. Yep, my diet definitely needs more variety. Maybe Mom and I can make some when I visit at Christmas.

Since I have been appointed as the resident hick here I can tell you that when I was growing up I dated a local girl whose mother made the real thing. Mince pies with meat, the old school real deal. Not this version with too much sweet and not enough savory. But the kind of put-up food that got farmers though the Winter. I've been toying with making some myself someday. Have you ever tried it? As I remember it she buried the mixture to ferment under the ground before digging it up and putting it into crusts. I'll have to do another Internet search on this I need to add this to my bucket list. I think the reason I was hesitant the last time was that if you don't get the temperatures right it might be the last item you check off your bucket list! > > > --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, Michael Jackson <mjackson74@> wrote: > > > > are mince pies actually good?
