Anne-Marie made me two Shepherdâ€™s Pies yesterday because Matt was having his wisdom teeth removed today, and she and Michael saved them for me until today.Â
Iâ€™m having half of one right now, and itâ€™s just as good as it was before. This is *great* Shepherdâ€™s Pie, and Iâ€™m pretty sure itâ€™s the only good Shepherdâ€™s Pie Iâ€™ve ever eaten.
Yes, it would be better still with ground lamb instead of ground beef, *but* that is the only thing that could possibly make this any better.
I donâ€™t know about Backyard Barbecueâ€™s business model, but I can tell you one thing: they are to Shepherdâ€™s Pie what Mockingbird Hill is to Sherry, what Pupatella is to pizza crust, what Sushi Taro is to sashimi, what Pure Pasty Co. is to the Pasty – Backyard Barbecueâ€™s Shepherdâ€™s Pie is so far-and-away better than anyone elseâ€™s is, that thereâ€™s simply nothing to compare it to.
The problem is: itâ€™s not on their regular menu, and I have to ask: WHY? This is the one thing here thatâ€™s Best In Class, at any price. Yet, itâ€™s a rare and fleeting occasion when it becomes available. It is legitimately great. Anne-Marie, could you chime in, and answer why it is you donâ€™t make 50 of these a week, and sell them for $20 each? Granted, that would be a bit pricey, but knowing how good they are, *I* would pay $20 for one. Others wouldnâ€™t, and to sell to the masses, you might have to price them at $14.99.
Would you consider it? If you want lines out your door, youâ€™ll specialize in this one item. The day you do, is the day you get a LOT of publicity from me.
