"Only Shepherds Pie can be the temperature of ice and lava simultaneously. "
There's always a lot of swearing when it's (frozen) Shepherds Pie night.
Holly always makes two, we eat one that day and freeze the second for a quick and easy meal.
It's easy but it's never quick because the damn thing never thaws right. Even after sitting on the counter all day and in the oven for over two hours, there's a good chance of an icy pocket right in the middle (of my piece).
