It's customary to have a French Meat Pie or Tourtière on New Year's Day for good luck! So I decided to make one & boy was it GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD! I made one for my friend Mary too, her mom passed away last Sunday she had been sick for quite sometime & Mary's son Mark wasn't able to get home from Iraq in tome for the wake, which was tonight and her funeral tomorrow ~ so I thought she could use a bit of luck for the New Year!
It's very easy to make....
1lb ground turkey, beef, or pork
1lb of breakfast sausage
4 large potatoes
2 large onions
4-5 stalks of celery
one 15 oz. can of chicken stock
pepper to taste
Bells seasoning or sage if you don't have any Bells to taste
pie crust (I cheat & use ready made or crescent rolls, I stink at making pie crust)
saute onion & celery in some butter until soft, add chicken stock and ground meat & pork sausage, dice potatoes and toss in. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, let it simmer away for about 30 minutes. Mash really good with a "masher" add seasoning to taste...If it still seems a little bit "watery" add some instant mashed potatoes to thicken up (a little trick I learned).
Spoon into bottom crust, top with second layer of crust and bake until crust is golden brown ~ very yummy but not very diet "friendly"...
Speaking of diets....I have been doing really well with watching what I eat but I really need to step it up...Nikky has the Wii Fit and she loves it,it's being aired on QVC (I just love the Q) this weekend and I might snap one up!! But I was thinking about walking or just getting moving and motivational music and then it came to me.....USMC Cadence's ~ what else could be more "MOTO", I might download some and see how they sound, make a "mix" of them and use them to do my exercising???? What do you think....
Good for you
Good for you
And good for me...
Until tomorrow Be SAfe & God Bless!
Lunch with old friends...
