just realized it's claimed already... fiveandspice, if you don't want it I'll do it!

Oh, you should go for it! Way more fun for you to get to test for the first time than for me to test it (though I'll probably make it some time anyway!) :)

Actually, change my mind. Let me go with Farmer's Pie. We're trying to be a heart healthy family following dad's recent heart attack.
