Pie

 

I know you’re thinking, potato, pastry, flour, eggs, milk right?!

Winter is here, it’s cold, the family is hungry and miserable, it’s comfort food weather so I think that I should adhere to mum protocol and feed the masses, create leftovers, keep the troupe happy!

This does call for some time, but it’s worth it. We were still eating it on the weekend and there is still half frozen now for a go to meal.
