Sunday Suppers with Lunchbox Love – Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie

One of the moms I know from karate class was talking about this yummy meal the other day. She made it with her kids right before their power went out for 30+ hours. You’ve got to love Spring storms! I like the twist of this Shepherd’s Pie – with sweet potatoes and ground turkey. Let us know what you think! The recipe is from Four Generations One Roof. Their blog, is all four generations living together under one roof, literally!
