The Ultimate Pie Recipe

Ok, so this recipe is from Mumma Sue Powell.

It goes like this.

Get yourself a whole, cooked chicken and tear off all the meat.

Put some butter in a big pan along with a little oil.

Chop an onion with some garlic and cook in pan until soft.

Next add the chicken, plus some chopped mushrooms.

Add a couple of big spoons of flour until chicken mixture is well covered.

Mix in some chicken stock and some cream until you get a creamy mix. Sprinkle on some thyme, add salt and pepper.

If you fancy adding some extra veggies, then go ahead. Sweetcorn, peas and carrots are nice...

Then transfer the pan contents to a pie dish.

Cover with puff pastry.

Bake in oven at 200 degrees for approx. 30 mins

I serve with buttery mash and peas. Oh and a cold glass of white wine. x

Who ate all the pies!?

WE DID! We love a good pie here at Florence Blue, and to celebrate National Pie Week (5 - 11 March 2012) we are rejoicing the pie.
We have also decided to share our TOP SECRET family 'Chicken and Mushroom Pie' recipe which we urge you to sample this week. We'll put it online a little later. It's the bees knees.

Style My Day

Florence Blue is changing a little. After organising a whole heap of weddings, Style My Day was born out of a realisation that couples want individual and fun weddings, but sometimes don’t have the time or energy to source heaps of loot to decorate their day. Style My Day therefore offers a hire service so you can borrow lots of lovely goodies for your wedding weekend, and then give them back. It means you won’t have to spend hours selling candlesticks on eBay or trying to find space in your wardrobe for a retro typewriter after your wedding is over. Not only that, but we are also pretty handy. Whether you want quirky paper goods, scrumptious cakes or individual finishing touches, we can make it all. So if you’d like our help in making your day that extra bit special, then just give us a shout. We can also be there on the day to set up so you can relax in the knowledge that your day will look just as you want without having to worry.

We're back!

Sorry I've been off the radar, but something, or someone rather has been keeping me busy!
Meet Sophie Elizabeth, born 19 July 2011.
She really is wonderful.
