“When it comes to a meat pie there is nothing that speaks more family nostalgia. We all remember that moment our mother has her hands cloaked in oven mitts nursing a Dutch oven or casserole steaming dish to the table. The smell has been traveling through the house for the better half the day and now its time to get out that deep spoon and scoop out all that is inside. This is one my favorite meals to make. Very happy to share it with you :)”
