Shepards pie

Ok I tried for the second time to make Shepards pie. My son tells me Im not using a correct dish to cook it in. I used a cassarole dish about 3 inches tall and the recipe as follows.
   My Shepards Pie
1 pound hamburger
1 onion
can of peas, carrots, corn and beans
4 or so cups mashed potato

   cook the meat with chopped onion. layer in dish meat first them veggies one at a time then the mashed potatoes on top.
  Bake at 350 f for about 30 to 40 minutes.

Is there a better recipe out there? I had alot of juice and my son says I should of used a shallow pie dish and to really drain the veggies (which I thought I did, Karen says I should use frozen veggies not canned because of the water content) What do you all think? Ill take any suggestions you can give me.

  Ok dont tell Izabella but Im makiing her the Abby doll from NCIS for her birthday this year so I need to get started right now because her birthday is September 12th. I dont have lots of money this year so I thought I would buy her clothes and make her a doll. She loves dolls and she has been begging me to make the Abby doll. OK Its out little secret if I can I will find my camera and see it I can upload a pic when I get done.
Tell me friends what have you all been doing ? I go to your blogs and on Facebook and keep track of you as well as I can. Do you have any new sites for me to check out you know how I love me some crochet sites. Ok Ill chat with you again really soon if not sooner heehee

I know I lnow Ive been gone awhile

Ive been busy with my life and God has been busy with me too! I hope you all have been great this summer. Its been way hot here in Vegas. But from what I hear its hot hot hot all over this country.
  Ive been busy with crochet as always but Im getting a little down but I know I can make it through. We have a little over 20 lapghans and I was hoping for at least 50 or 60 this year but I will continue on till we have to stop.
  Im trying to plan for my christmas list but I dont know if I will crochet gifts this year. I was thinking of just doing myself a new afghan this year instead of making stuff for everyone. Thinking of taking a little break I think. What do you all think ? Should I take this year off?
  Ive been baking lots of cookies and making new and exciting dinners I hope. If you have any recipes for easy and quick dinners send them my way Ill try them all.
  Ok my friends if you think of me while your saying your prayers please pray that I grow in Gods word and stay in His word.
