The baking in me!

There is nothing like a cold day to bring out the baking in me.  Yesterday it was cookies and today a chicken vegetable pie.   I had the filling simmering on the stove top when the son who does everything called in with an invitation to dinner, he is cooking one of his curries and I love a good homemade curry,  how could I refuse.  I finished baking the pie, I used a rectangle sized dish to fit in all the filling and then had to join the pastry to fit the dish,  it looks rustic but the filling tastes good, I'm looking forward to tomorrow night, and I will also have leftovers for the freezer.    It is a shame that I won't be eating this tonight but, after all who would turn down an ivitation for dinner,  a meal I didn't have to cook.   With that decided I think it will also be a good idea to take those cookies for the kids to finish off.
