Sorry about yesterday

See,  Since I don’t have my drivers license, I gotta walk my kids to school,  and since my husband isn’t home (Survival course for work) I have to walk to get groceries too.  So yeah yesterday was spent walking…A LOT.  So I justifiably didn’t do much in the way of sitting at the computer and blogging.  I did however make a nice Salmon pie and will share with you the recipe, yes, with pictures.

Salmon Pie


FILLING (you wanna make this first and put it in the fridge to chill)
2 cans of salmon
3 potatoes, boiled and mashed up
1tsp tarragon
3tsp garlic powder,
3tsp onion powder,
1tsp seasoned salt
a dash of pepper
2tbsp dried Parsley

Now,  You dump the filling ingredients in a bowl and you mix it very well. so it kinda looks like this:
Put it in the fridge to cool off.
Now for the pie crust:
1 cup shortening
2 cups flour
1tsp salt.
With a fork mash this together till it looks like this:
Then slowly add ice water a few tablespoons at a time until it starts to form a smooth dough.  I don’t really have a measurement for this because it’s subjective.
Put it in the fridge to chill for a bit too.
Then, take half the pie dough, roll it out on a floured surface and put it in a pie tin, add filling.
Then you roll out the other half of the dough and put on top of the filling..making a PIE.
Like this:
Poke a few holes in the top with a fork, and brush with some milk or egg wash to give it a golden/glossy sheen as it cooks, 375 degree oven for about 45min to an hour, don’t cook it longer than that or the crust well *points to picture below*  I was too busy watching a movie with my kids.  Whoops  was still edible, the crust was just a little darker than it should have been.
Then serve:  I served it with some Green Giant steamed broccoli/cauliflower with cheese sauce.
