This day has flown by! It has been very busy with schooling, a meeting, voting, ballet class, cooking and cleaning! With the time change it feels much later too! It’s dark at 5:30!
Today I took my leftover roast beef, broth and carrots, cut up and boiled red potatoes and grabbed a bag of frozen mixed vegetables to make a delicious potpie.My kids gobble this up! Here’s the recipe:
4-5 cups beef broth, leftover juice from roast
1 cup potatoes, cooked and diced
1 cup carrots, cooked and sliced
2 cups roast, cooked leftover, chopped
1/4 cup green beans, canned, drained ( I use a bag of frozen mixed vegetables)
1/4 cup corn, frozen
2 cups flour, crust ingredient
1 tsp salt, crust ingredient
6 tbsp ice-cold water
2/3 cup butter, cold, sliced into pieces-crust ingredient
1 egg, crust ingredient
1 tbsp white or cider vinegar, crust recipe
2 cups flour (I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1-1/2 cups all-purpose)
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup cold butter, sliced into pieces
6 tablespoons ice cold water
1 tablespoon white or cider vinegar
Combine flour and salt, then cut butter into flour until mixture resembles small crumbs (I use a food processor for this).
In a small bowl, beat egg with water and vinegar.
Add egg mixture to flour mixture, stirring until a soft dough forms. Roll dough on well-floured surface.
Ps. Sorry about the picture. It’s not good quality!
