Day 362 – #33 Try 50 new recipes

Another day, another pie!  With the last of the Christmas meat I tried yet another pie.  This was very similar to yesterday’s effort but topped with shortcrust pastry instead of mash.  OMG.  Absolutely gorgeous.  I learned my lesson from yesterday and made a bit more sauce and the result was fantastic.  Again, we have another portion to eat today which I’m very much looking forward to….

more pie

So, all in all we have done pretty well with our meat.  Nothing went to waste.  (Well, only the turkey carcass after it had been completely stripped and boiled down for stock).
We managed to produce:
Christmas Day turkey for two people
Turkey stock
Turkey soup – 8 portions
Turkey sandwiches (to accompany soup!) – 8 portions
St Stephen’s Day Pie – 6 portions
Turkey & Ham Pie – 4 portions
Cold meat platters (with cheese etc) – 4 portions

Not too shabby! #loveyourleftovers
