shepherds pie and Bernaise in the same post

Thinking of ways to use leftover pork roast and sweet potatoes, it occurs to me the combination, being as natural as lamb and potatoes, ought to work for shepherds pie. I am thinking chunks of pork in some sort of a gravy/sauce, probably a vegetable-based one but maybe a chicken broth based one, a few chunks of onions, etc., some peas, and a topping of savory mashed sweet potatoes. Anyone ever tried that before (surely "Yes") and anyone have suggestions on seasonings or other things to throw in?

Tonight was a grilled strip steak, and I figured I'd make a little Bernaise. Two findings: dried tarragon is not great compared with fresh Mexican mint marigold and Meyer lemons are just not tart enough for sauces.
