|My sister's deep dish pie plate|
It was a bit of a splurge for me.
It's not that we don't have money to spend...
it's more about how I spend it.
(Does that make sense?)
At any rate, it made a wonderful dinner one night
for the three of us--my husband, my father and me.
Crock pot style, complete with potatoes, carrots and onions.
The following day, the leftover meat made wonderful roast beef sandwiches
enjoyed by all.
But the crowning glory of that chuck roast leftover happened at a third meal.
I sauteed a chopped onion in a tiny bit of oil and added them and a handful of frozen peas to the shredded beef and leftover potatoes and carrots (chopped finer this time).
I googled "homemade pot pies" for baking time and temperatures
and placed the filling into store-bought refrigertor pie crusts.
I used a wonderful deep-dish pie plate one of my sisters had left the last time she was here,
and invited my other sister to share the pot pie with us!
Served with a tossed salad, it made a most delicious meal!
(And we have one piece leftover.)
Ten servings from that $9+ chuck roast makes me think that I should splurge again soon!
