Any plans on supper tonight?

I'm throwing a roast in the crockpot, mashed potatoes, peas and carrots, and applesauce

NOt 100% sure but I am leaning toward something with blsl chicken breasts.

Mel do you know how your MIL makes her meat pies?  It is a very French Canadian thing.  My mom would use mostly ground beef or a combo of ground pork, ground veal and ground beef.  My Aunt and her MIL (now my cousins make it) used just ground pork.  I am not too crazy about the 100% ground pork ones but I do like my Mom's recipe.  I need to make one for Christmas or Christmas Eve.  My Dad will love it.  Thanks for the reminder.

I don't think I have ever eaten a meat pie before. But it sure sounds like something I would like. Anyone have a recipe?

Jeff is coming over tomorrow and we are going to watch the season finale of Sons of Anarchy.   Love that show.

 

I took out 3 frozen bl/sl chicken breasts and put them in the Crock Pot, then dumped in the stuff to make tortilla soup.   I love that recipe.   And I love CP cooking when Jeff is here because I don’t have to take any time to actually cook.   It’s done.   And then I’ll have lunch for the rest of the week.

Yes- I lost this post. Glad I had it on Word.

Lasagna.... one of the big frozen things by Marie Callender.  Will probably have green beans with it.

I want the recipe for meat pie too..... i've never tried it either!

I asked MIL about the pies on facebook... and this was her reply-

These were pork, but you could use other meat.
Most people especially in Quebec, use half and half pork and beef.they could be made with beef and turkey or chichen, or turkey alone.

PS: I DO NOT RECOMMEND SEARCHING FOR "PASTIES" WHILE YOU ARE AT WORK!!! I NEVER EVEN THOUGHT OF THE OTHER TYPE OF "PASTIES" COMING UP IN THE RESULTS... BOY WAS I SURPRISED! PASTIES (PRONOUNCED IN THE BEGINNING LIKE PAT) = MEAT PIES PASTIES (PRONOUNCED IN THE BEGINNING LIKE PAY) = TITTY TASSLES lol
