|Blackberry and Apple pudding with 9p Tesco instant custard……………a bit sweet but delicious.|
I couldn’t resist sharing my kitchen endeavours today. I’ve had a lovely day (Dearly Beloved came home at lunchtime which greatly lifted my mood, I’m no good without him). I’ve laundered all the clothes, hung them out to dry and brought them in and they are ironed and put away! I’ve also mown the front and back lawns and weeded the paths in the back garden.
I picked every scrap of chicken off the carcass. There is so much on a chicken that I used to feed four of us from one and still have enough for pie or curry later in the week.
I’m still using up the Approved Foods, suet crust pastry. The tiny lumps of suet melt and create air pockets in the pastry and it is light and crispy. I must order some more. I added the meat and veg to the same pot and mixed up some instant Tesco Value gravy and stirred it all together.
The result is a very chunky pie filling with a lovely gravy. Brush the edges with milk.
Roll out and add the pastry lid.
Trim off the excess pastry.
I always bag up my extra pastry and, when I have enough, will make a quiche, pie or pasties……….even the tiniest bit is salvaged.
The result is two fantastic pies, each one will make two meals for us. These will be wrapped in cling film and frozen until we fancy them.
Just in case you’re interested…………….here’s the close up.
Even a lazy Sunday can be used to store away food for another day and make sure absolutely nothing is wasted.
