We had pie crusts at work yesterday for the first time in forever, so I had to pick up a couple of packages.  I know I constantly and continually rant and rave about scratch cooking and processed foods, but every now and again I have to eat my words, so to speak.  Good-quality pie crusts are a great thing to have in the freezer.

The filling was pretty much a basic beef stew simmered for several hours and then ladled into a crust-lined plate, topped with another crust, and brushed with an egg.

It went into a 400° oven for about 30 minutes and dinner was served!


There’s enough left for at least another meal.

Life is good.
