And the Pot Pie Saga Continues....

So I think I mentioned in the last post that we were on a pot pie brain storming bender right? Well today we knocked out pie number two. And it was a home run...







This time we made chipotle cheddar mashed potatoes for the base (kind of like shepard's pie) and then put in a layer of black beans cooked in maple syrup and cinnamon, next came our fave fake chicken (Quorn brand) cooked with heirloom tomatoes, onions, Hatch green chili, cilantro and garlic. We sprinkled some more cheddar on and laid the top crust dough on and popped that baby in the oven for 1/2 on hour. Soooo good! I have a feeling that this is the first of many more experiments to come. Perfect cool weather food comin' down the pike.

I love that Fall is sorta, kinda in the air... I found this antique basket at the thrift the other day and doesn't it look perfect with apples in it?



The farmer's market reaped some seriously good rewards again this weekend as well. We brought Chelle down there with us to brave the crowds and we all three left so loaded with produce that it was a ridiculous and painful walk back to the truck. I got these enormous, fabulous peppermint dahlias for our table...




They are seriously the size of a salad plate. Huge!


Ok. Sorry to be so short and stupid tonight but Billy is waiting on me to watch a movie. I just did not want to let the weekend pass without saying YO. So YO. See you again in a few days.

Note to self: do not go to Full Hookups when hungry.

We (well, Andy) made the Smitten Kitchen pie and it was great. Your Shepherd's pie sounds even better! My parents are vegetarian (we aren't, but often eat meatless), and Mom swears by the Quorn. This sounds like a brilliant recipe.

Beautiful basket and dahlias!

Karen... word to your Mother! For real. The Quorn is where it's at. I can't eat soy so thank goodness for the mushroom whatever the hell that this stuff is made out of.

Hope you guys had a brilliant weekend.
