from the kitchen: humble pies

it was pizza all day on mother's day. but yesterday was all about pie.

i've been hankering to make pie for weeks now. weeks.

i finally got down to making pastry and getting all my ingredients together to make a rhubarb custard pie and a version of chicken pot pie.

presenting the finished products to my family made me feel a bit like a domestic goddess.

i over-salted the pot pie biscuits though. but the kids ate up and it had fabulous texture. i used this recipe but added soy sauce and worcestershire sauce to the stew and used half white flour, half whole wheat flour for the biscuits.

and the pie - my favourite pie EVER. EVER. EVER. brilliant, brilliant recipe. simple and straight forward. but the wife didn't love the pie. probably because i may have used the same knife to cut up the chives and the rhubarb. next time, there will be less sugar. and of course, i vow to use a different knife for savouries and sweets. 

oh well. i really can't win 'em all.
