Sorry about yesterday

See,  Since I don't have my drivers license, I gotta walk my kids to school,  and since my husband isn't home (Survival course for work) I have to walk to get groceries too.  So yeah yesterday was spent walking...A LOT.  So I justifiably didn't do much in the way of sitting at the computer and blogging.  I did however make a nice Salmon pie and will share with you the recipe, yes, with pictures.

Salmon Pie


FILLING (you wanna make this first and put it in the fridge to chill)
2 cans of salmon
3 potatoes, boiled and mashed up
1tsp tarragon
3tsp garlic powder,
3tsp onion powder,
1tsp seasoned salt
a dash of pepper
2tbsp dried Parsley

Now,  You dump the filling ingredients in a bowl and you mix it very well. so it kinda looks like this:

Put it in the fridge to cool off.

Now for the pie crust:


1 cup shortening
2 cups flour
1tsp salt.

With a fork mash this together till it looks like this:

Then slowly add ice water a few tablespoons at a time until it starts to form a smooth dough.  I don't really have a measurement for this because it's subjective.

Put it in the fridge to chill for a bit too.

Then, take half the pie dough, roll it out on a floured surface and put it in a pie tin, add filling.

Then you roll out the other half of the dough and put on top of the filling..making a PIE.

Like this:

Poke a few holes in the top with a fork, and brush with some milk or egg wash to give it a golden/glossy sheen as it cooks, 375 degree oven for about 45min to an hour, don't cook it longer than that or the crust well *points to picture below*  I was too busy watching a movie with my kids.  Whoops  was still edible, the crust was just a little darker than it should have been.

Then serve:  I served it with some Green Giant steamed broccoli/cauliflower with cheese sauce.


  1. Wow, it seems to be delicious!

  2. Seafood never has agreed with me. :(

  3. It doesn't even look that bad slightly burnt. Delicious. Feed me please.

  4. Looks great, I am hungry now. :(

  5. oh that had my mouth watering. can i use tuna instead of salmon?

  6. nice...although i was distracted by your tumblr feed. i think i might add one to my blog :0
