Leftover Turkey Shepherd's Pie

Leftover Turkey Shepherd's Pie

Thanksgiving came and is now gone just as fast as it came. We had Thanksgiving over at our house this year so I cooked a great big old turkey. I made all kinds of pies which some I have shared with you here and some I will share in the next few days like my great classic pumpkin pie that was a huge hit. My husband even said I spent almost 2 days in the kitchen cooking up a big meal so that it can be enjoyed and done with in about an hour! I know, pretty sad, but the fact of the matter is that I do enjoy being in my kitchen and cooking up a storm. The turkey of course was very delicious but there are lots of leftovers which made my dear dog Mia very happy. She has parked herself by the fridge and will not budge. She knows that there is only good stuff coming out of there.
