All done!  Yum!

All done! Yum!

I made these potatoes and froze them a couple of months ago and they tasted very good.  I am making them fresh for dinner today with my pork tenderloin.  I figured I’ll steam some carrots with them and it will be a healthy, yet tasty dinner.  Make sure to check out my pork tenderloin recipe post.

Here’s the recipe for the Garlic Cheddar Mashed Potatoes:

Ingredients
6 potatoes, peeled and diced
6 cloves garlic, peeled-not minced
1/3 cup buttermilk  (check out recipe for this down below))
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
Notes / Directions
Cook potatoes and garlic together until tender. Mash with buttermilk, cheese, salt and paprika.To make buttermilk, use just under one cup of milk and add 1 tbsp of white vinegar
This is very simple and very good!
Enjoy!

Beef Potpie

Good evening,
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:

Ingredients
3/4 cup flour
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
Notes / Directions
Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add flour and cook, stirring frequently, for several minutes until flour just starts to brown.Add beef broth, stirring constantly. While continuing to stir, bring to a boil and cook for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. (I find it helpful to remove pan from heat to do the stirring, then return it to the heat to cook and thicken it.)Stir in cooked meat and vegetables. The filling might look a little pale at this point. Stir in browning sauce to achieve a more appetizing color. Set filling aside until crust is made.Line a 9×13 glass baking dish with crust. Add filling, then top with crust. Seal edges and cut vents. Bake at 350°F for about 40 minutes or until crust has browned as desired. Remove from oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes before cutting.

Crust:

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 egg
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.

Enjoy!

Ps.  Sorry about the picture.  It’s not good quality!
