Since it turned into a bleak and rainy day, I did not feel like venturing out anyway. So, the freezer was to be my "store". Checking the freezer inventory, I found frozen Thanksgiving turkey, frozen homemade chicken stock, one sheet of puff pastry, and Voila! I have the makings of a Turkey Pie for dinner! Just need to add the carrots and onions!
A quick saute of chunk cut carrots and onions in 4 T. butter and then adding about 1/3 C. flour,
stirring to "cook" the flour. Then creating a veloute with about 1-1/2 C. of the homemade
chicken stock......adding a few more ladles so not too thick. Folding in the turkey which had
been cleaned and trimmed prior to freezing. Also threw in a few green beans I had also frozen
last month! Fresh parsley on top and almost done!
It only took the puff pastry about 15 minutes to thaw enough so I could unfold it. Since I wanted
quite a thick topping to this dish, I did not bother to roll it more than once or twice. Carefully
laying it on top of the pie ingredients, a quick egg wash and into the oven at 425* for 25 minutes!
This isn't the best photo but it was such a tasty dish for a dreary, rainy chilly evening with very
little effort and I did not have to go to a brick and mortar store!!!!
