beef stew redo

Wow I made a wonderful pot of beef stew the other day.  So great to come home and have supper done in the crockpot!  But of course I made way too much.  So I let the leftover stew cool and then chopped up the veggies a little, if they were too big, and thickened the broth to a gravy.  Then I poured into a pie shell, topped it with another pie crust, and baked!  YUMMMM beef pot pie!  My husband I think liked it even better than the stew.  He doesn't complain about leftovers if they are cleverly disguised!  Now what to do with all that leftover chili from our boo blast? Any suggestions?

starter for seven layer dip for the big game that's what we have done in the past.

Beef pot pie sounds great! I love when leftovers turn out even better the next day. Chili dogs! Make some fry bread and have with chili and sour cream. Layer with cooked rice and cheese and bake until hot and gooey with melted cheddar:) Add some refried beans and put in flour tortillas, spray with PAM and bake....serve with guacamole...kind of like a baked chimichanga...

I took the chili and reheated and then added about 1 cup of cubed Velveeta, 2 cups of frozen corn (my freezer that I put up in summer), and 1 cup macaroni. I let that simmer til the macaroni was done and the cheese was melted! Wow was it good! Thanks for the other great ideas!

About Me
I learned to cook watching my mom and my Grandma's cook - who all are the best in the world! I have huge garden and I can a lot of stuff for winter. My daughter would'nt dream of eating a pie that was store bought! And we raise chickens. There is nothing that compares to farm fresh eggs. They just make your baked goods taste better.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food! If it's fattening, chocolate or salty I'm in! I love to take leftovers and transform them into something wow!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always made sugar cookies with us kids at Christmas time and do the same thing now! I used to love to pick out a recipe and Mom would let me got to town in the kitchen! At Christmas I also make tons of candy's, breads, and cookies that I give away to neighbors and family for gifts.
My cooking triumphs
I love to enter canned goods and baked goods in the county fair! I have won quite a few ribbons! I recently had a recipe published in Nebraska Life Magazine's cookbook. I was so excited.
My cooking tragedies
One time I tried to make pierogies when I was about 15. Well I didn't realize how much a cast iron skillet would smoke when it got hot! I ended up filling the house with a lovely smokey aroma! I never have made them again! Another time I tried to make chicken satay, and my husband and daughter about gagged when they tried the sauce. As they said peanut butter doesn't go with chicken! But I loved it. They were scraping the sauce off the chicken. They won't let me live that one down!
