Chicken & Asparagus Pie, Green Beans & Salad.

Wednesday 8th December 2010

My friend Tamsin swears by this dish. It’s a great crowd pleaser. It looks really impressive but is very easy to make. Boiling the chicken keeps it moist, make the white sauce with the liqiud from the asparagus and mix it all together. Leave it to cool down, so it becomes more solid then put it in your filo pastry. The trick is to not over fill the pie or when it comes to sealing the pie it will all come out the sides which makes it more difficult to get the sides to stick. My mum still makes it for all family gatherings.

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.
