Prime Rib Pot Pie


Prime Rib Pot Pie

Intro Collage


It’s Sunday evening…the children are fed and either tucked in or finishing homework in their rooms.  Michael is somewhere over the Atlantic en route to Frankfurt, Germany before making his way to his final destination in Finland.  And I sit here at my computer…with you.  Thanks for keeping me company!

As I mentioned before, yesterday was homecoming for Max’s high school.  The day began with his freshman football game {a 40-0 victory!} followed by a prime rib dinner here for him and a few of his friends before heading over to the homecoming dance which lasted well into the evening hours.  Believe it or not, we do have leftovers of prime rib…after all, this is what happens when you send my husband to the butcher for a prime rib…


We cooked this gorgeous piece of meat according to this recipe and, as always, it was SPECTACULAR!  Michael bought enough meat to ensure leftovers and that is where we begin this evening.  With the meat already cooked, I knew a meat pot pie would be an easy and comforting Sunday dinner.

With the meat already prepared…


all I needed to do was to prep the vegetables…onions, carrots, garlic and brussels sprouts…IMG_4740


Once the pie filling was made, store-bought puff pastry made for an easy assembly…


Covered with a pastry crust and, after a turn in the oven…
