    Is boss’s correct? Or should it be boss’. Correct me if I’m wrong. What about Jesus.

    Now if one of those employees was named Shepherd…

    (Although it could  be an eponymous name, I suppose.)


    From: ”The Fannie Farmer Cookbook” (Twelfth Edition)

    Revised by: Marion Cunningham with Jeri Laber

    Illustrated by: Lauren Jarret

    Published by: Bantam Books

    ISBN 0-553-23488-9


    Shepherd’s Pie (SERVES SIX)


    3 cups (3/4 L) chopped cooked lamb

    1 large clove garlic, peeled

    1 small onion

    1 teaspoon rosemary, crumbled

    4 tablespoons butter

    2 tablespoons flour

    3/4 cup (1 3/4 dL) beef or lamb broth


    Freshly ground pepper

    4 medium potatoes, cooked and mashed, about 3 cups (3/4 L)


    Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).  Combine the lamb, garlic, onion, and rosemary.  Put through a meat grinder twice, or chop until fine in a food processor.  Melt the butter in a skillet and stir in the flour.  Cook for a few minutes until smooth and blended.  Slowly add the beef or lamb broth.  Stir and cook until the gravy is thickened, cooking at least 5 minutes to get rid of the raw flour taste.  Add the lamb mixture, stir to blend, and add salt and pepper to taste.  Spoon into 1 1/2-quart casserole or deep pie dish.  Spread the mashed potatoes on top and cover evenly to the edge of the casserole.  Make a crisscross design with a fork.  Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the meat is bubbling hot and the potatoes are browned.

    Maybe if the guy looked remotely like Hannibal Lecter I would’ve gotten the joke. Even reading the name backwards on door didn’t click at first.
