Dee Posted December 14, 2022 Share Posted December 14, 2022 (edited) Today I made a custard pie for lunch. As I made it, I was thinking about all you could do with this filling. To begin with if you have milk and eggs, you could make this basic mixture. I, of course, for pie added a little sugar, nutmeg and vanilla. I also made a crust which you wouldn't have to do. A greased casserole dish or 8x8 pan would work too. If you want to make a one dish meal you could make the filling and add meat, pre-cooked potatoes, cheese, vegetables, peppers, onions, etc. Anything, you have on hand. What you have on hand is the key theme here. We don't want to always have to run to the grocery store.....especially, if there's no longer a grocery store. I can picture this pie with cheese and veggies, as a quiche. Maybe even a can of peaches or pineapple baked in as a dessert. Would that work and taste good? I have no idea, but I do know if you're trying to feed a family and have to use what's on hand it just might be delicious. Who has more ideas? Let's get a discussion going on things you can fix with what you have on hand. A homestead with a cow and chickens can really make a difference, BUT, we're not all out in the country. Even if we are, like me you may be old enough to think, "I don't want all that work of livestock anymore". Ok, your turn! Edited December 14, 2022 by Dee 4 Quote Link to comment
