So Good Corned Beef Pot Pie!

I wanted to add something to our menu and decided on pot pie. This recipe is made entirely from scratch and it took me a little more than an hour to make. It is a great way to use up any leftover meat you may have. I made mine with cut up corned beef and it was very good! I have written the recipe by step, so you will have to go down the whole thing when you gather your ingredients. 2 Large Carrots 2 medium Potatoes 1 Can Peas 1 Cup Bite Sized Meat, already cooked Cut up the carrots and potatoes into bite sized pieces and boil at medium while working on the sauce. Make white sauce (recipe comes from 3 1/2 T. dry milk powder 3 T. unbleached flour 1/2 tsp. sea salt 1 1/4 c. water Put in glass jar with tight lid, shake until smooth: dry milk powder, flour, salt, water. When smooth, place into a saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly with wire whip, until sauce starts to thicken a bit. Turn heat to medium, cook/stir for 2 minutes (sauce gets thicker....keep cooking/stirring....the flour must be well-cooked). Drain the carrots and potatoes and put back in pot. Add sauce, peas, and meat stir until everything is coated in sauce. Put mix in a 2 quart casserole dish. You will top with this biscuit mix (from 1 c. unbleached flour 1/2 c. whole wheat flour 3 T. dry milk powder 1/2 tsp. baking soda 2 tsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. salt 3 T. cold butter or margarine + 3 T. shortening 1/2 c. water (may need 1 to 2 T. more) 1 tsp. vinegar Preheat oven to 425ยบ. Mix flours, dry milk, baking soda, baking powder, salt. Cut in butter or margarine and shortening. Using a fork: stir in the water and vinegar. Cover the meat and veggie mix with the dough and bake for about 30 minutes. Enjoy! For us this make 6 hearty servings. ~*~NOTE~*~It seems that blogger does not want to have any formatting in my post today. I apologize for the paragraph style of the recipe. I have tried to break it up by highlighting the ingredients.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
