While living in Utah we received a ton of snow..I mean a ton! Some days we would get 1-2 feet in a 24 hour period. The first few years we loved shoveling, hey, it was a work out. But then it got old and we hired this service out! LOL
With the winters being so cold and long I had a lot of time in the home to cook and sew. I watched another old movie and once again meat pies were discussed. It was so snowy and cold outside it seemed to me to be the perfect dinner to tackle. I like a challenge and knew these would take some time to make, but, after all, where do you go when it's a blizzard outside...NO WHERE!
The first time I made them, I clearly did not understand the "we need more" factor that was at stake. My family devoured them in a very short time. I have to say they were a hit! The only problem I had with them is they needed a sauce. I am a dipper at heart and will always want my food to be dipped into something.
One month later I made them again for a family event. We had lots of cousins, aunts and uncles over for a party. I knew this would be a hit and the kids could easily take a meat pie and go back to playing. I decided to make a quick gravy. I will say that the adults loved this too. The kids were in too big of a hurry to dip or dunk anything...LOL Although, when I make this for my family, like I did last night, the kids enjoyed the gravy.
Are they time consuming? A little bit. Are they worth the effort? ABSOLUTELY! ENOY
