Stew for a Cold Day

The frigid temperatures of the last few days really gave me a craving for a thick, hearty stew. The grocery store had some lamb for stew meat and it gave me a great idea. How could I transform the traditional ingredients of Shepherd's Pie into a meal that could be cooked in the crock pot?
