Do you know those dreams that you have at night that wake you from a deep sleep?  Well I had one of those dreams the other night.  In this dream, I made a delicious beef pie, but it wasn't a pot pie or a shepherds pie.  In fact, it was a bacon weave with an apple and fennel stuffed meatloaf pie!  Well I put this recipe to the test on Monday.  I prepped it on Sunday night, so on Monday while at work, I started the Weekender and put this dish in for two hours at 325 and BOOM!  It...
