The only thing I like more than making my dinner is seeing what other people do for theirs… so reading the various blogs and posts are fun for me.. I learn things, get a better sense of presentation and the visuals involved… which I forgot to mention in the last post..
And on to pot pies…
I got some single serve pie tins and made pot-pies last week along with roasted everything I could find… the pot-pies were excellent and substantial, mostly chicken, followed by potatoes, carrots and real stuff that has some flavor….. not three micro-cubes of chicken floating in a thickening agent..
Today I was pestering the butcher about brisket bones and kidneys.. The kidneys come in Thursday so that will be fun, the brisket bones “no luck” they don’t carry them.. which means I’ll be back tracking the other shops..
None of which is the point, other than, as I was standing there having a chat, it dawned on me..
I don’t have to stick with chicken, beef or turkey pot pies.. there are no rules, the pot-pie police won’t swear out a warrant or come snatch me up for deviant behavior…
The Brits do pork pies, steak and kidney pies….So why shouldn’t I have at it?
I like chili verde.. (pork with green chilis and tomatillos).. So now I want to make green chili and pork pot-pies and see how that goes..
Which is pretty exciting from my way of thinking…. the kidneys will now probably end up in pies instead of on skewers, which I hadn’t planned but as long as I’m on a roll, might as well….
