I moved this week, and since I live in Oregon, that meant shuffling all of my worldly possessions from one location to another in cold, pouring ran. Mid-way through the scurrying, I came inside and pulled one of these hand pies from the refrigerator. I didn't even warm it up. Just inhaled the whole thing straight from the plastic wrap, and it was perfect. A bit savory, a bit sweet, and hearty enough to sustain me through the rest of the heavy lifting.

In anticipation of St. Patrick's Day, we've deemed this week Guinness Week, and we'll be offering up luscious stout-based recipes all week long.
