Good Home Cookin'.....

Yum, Yum, Yum! Last night I made chicken, ham and mushroom pies. They were so simple yet so delicious! Here's how I made them.....

300g chicken thighs diced
200g ham diced
1/2 cup of cup mushrooms diced
1 onion
1 clove garlic crushed
1/4 cup of cream
1/2 cup of grated cheese (any is fine)
1 teaspoon chicken salt
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste
puff pastry
Saute onions and garlic, add ham. Cook for 5 mins or until ham is slightly browned. Add chicken, cook for approx 10mins. Add cream, cheese, chicken salt, parsley, salt and pepper. Cook for a further 10mins. Cut pastry and mould it to pie tins, spoon approx 1/3 cup of mixture into each pie tin, place another piece of pastry on top and press down edges to seal, brush top of pie with an egg wash. Bake in the oven at 200'C for 20 mins or until pies are golden.

Then to top it off... for dessert I made some little mini lemingtons. I made these yesterday afternoon after work. This morning I dropped some off to my hubby and his work mates for morning tea, they thought that all of their Xmas's' had come at once.

Today's 'Get Happy Now' Tip #10 - Lay the groundwork for some future fun. Order a book you’ve been wanting to read, or plan a weekend away, whatever sounds like fun. Try to involve friends or family, as well. People enjoy almost all activities more when they’re with other people than when they’re alone.

  3. Hello Jodie,

    thank you for your comment on my blog - of course I had to have a look at yours! That picture of the pie is just delicious, and your quilting is wonderful. (I have no patience whatsoever for quilting, though I really love the product.)

  4. Love the tip - with school holidays fast approaching it's time to plan some 'fun'! The pies look delicious, they sound easy enough but I'm sure I could stuff them up!!

  5. Thanks for checking me out mona! I love quilting too and until about 12months ago I didn't have the patience either, but then I met the most amazing group of women who taught me the basics and now I'm hooked!

  6. Hi Jacqui,
    Thanks for the comment! The pies are just too easy, give them a go, you'll be suprised! After I published tip #10 I planned a couple of days away with my hubby and little girl for next weekend! We're going to visit my mum which will be great!
