a pot pie for dark days week 9

We're still on a using up leftovers kick here, and tonight I'm sending off the last of the (frozen) thanksgiving turkey parts--2 big wings.

The inside filling started with market onions and homegrown carrots and garlic sauteed in some WI butter. I added some chopped creamy potatoes from the market, and after they were partially soft I made a roux and added milk and broth (I had made a quick broth from the leftover bones while I was working on the rest of the filling). To that I threw in a mess of homegrown frozen veggies--broccoli, yellow zucchini, peas, and green beans, and the turkey. Oh and more thyme and some of our garden sage as well. (Plus S&P, nonlocal of course).

Crust was about half local wheat, and half WW pastry flour (bob's red mill?), WI butter, and some more dried herbs.

We served with some homegrown/home canned pears.... and for dessert?

Homemade ice cream with local whole milk and our own eggs and raspberries. Only the sugar and some organic half and half was out of the area :)
