Top Review by Andi of Longmeadow

Outstanding! Simmering, sultry, saucy, and smooth tasting. This was as easy as peezy to put together on a busy farming afternoon, and the aroma out on the front porch was enough to pull you in from the outer fields. I followed this exactly, except forgot the carrots, (go figure - a farmer forgetting carrots?) but other then that this was exactly what I look for in a filling, very tasteful, and beautiful presentation without a whole lot of fuzz or fuss. Bravo indeed! Thank you so much, Lois! Made in your honor for your help in voting for the "Village of Lawrencetown - Thank you tag" March 2010
