8 Days Until Christmas…
Last weekend we had some friends over for a casual get together…I made meatloaf and mashed potatoes…and for dessert a chocolate pudding pie. It was all about comfort food and frankly, budget. These foods werevery easy on the wallet…I think I probally spent less than $20 on the entire meal for 6 people. Sadly, everyone ate it all though..no leftovers!
I don’t have photos of the meatloaf or mashed pototes because we had guests over when I took them out of the oven and I felt a little silly about photographing the food before letting them chow down. However, I did take a few photos as I made the pie in the morning.
Here it is…I’d rolled the freshly made pie dough out…
And here it is ready to blind bake:
Here’ a close up shot of the chocolate pudding before I poured it into the baked shell:
It was very, very good. And frankly easy and innexpensive to make. Next time though, I might just skip the crust and serve the pudding…it was fabulous!
I didn’t get a shot of it all done with the whipped cream but it actually came out looking just like Deb’s did on her site (honestly), so if you follow the link to check the recipe, you’ll see her (far better than mine) photographs.
And some gratiutiuous pug shot of Popo. It’s blurry but I still like it.
