days 3 & 4:: bells and stars


I need to make up for a lost day - my internet was not connecting yesterday not, as I had originally thought, because of a flaky service provider, but because one of the cats likes to sit on the Belkin thingy, thus severing the connection.  So here we have a double offering - a (chicken) pie with both bells and stars.  I make my pie by cooking a couple of leeks in a generous tablespoon of butter, adding plain flour when they are nearly cooked to make a messy roux, then stirring, stirring, stirring in milk to make a smooth sauce seasoned with black pepper and a pinch of salt.  Add chicken leftovers, put in a pie dish, cover with ready-made pastry and cook until golden.

Never fails to make everyone happy.

Looks lovely, one of my favourite pie fillings. Would work well with turkey as well...
