Impossible Pie

While looking for some recipes for quick and easy lunches I stumbled across a few recipes for impossible pies.   Why is it called impossible pie I wondered.....because according to Google it is impossible to make a mistake.    Sounds just like my kind of recipe.     Well I am not so sure that it is not possible to make a mistake.   What did I learn with my first effort .......do not mix all the ingredients together as the pasta that was near the top really dried out during the cooking process and was very rubbery to eat.    Also do not put the pie dish onto a tray as directed as it did not set well.

Take number two was much better as it was decided to layer the pasta first, then top with the veggies and lastly pour over the wet ingredients and not place on a tray while baking.     A much better attempt but it was still not what I call a pie consistency.

Last week's attempt - I was not going to be beaten by this recipe.  I used all of my new found knowledge above and let it sit in the fridge for 24 hours before serving.   

Third time lucky.      This is a great way to use up all those extra veggies that we tend to cook and put in the freezer.    The veggies in this one included sweet potato, broccoli, cauliflower and onion however it one of those recipes that anything goes and would still be good.   

I did have plans to sew  will chatting along on Zoom yesterday but for some reason I could not log on using my Ipad so it was over to my PC to join in.    I was not able to stay for long but it is always a fun time.  Most of the northern hemisphere girls had gone off to bed but there were a couple still up.  As you can see everyone is  being very industrious except me.  

Over to the sewing table after logging off saw as many red scraps as possible  sewn together into pieces big enough to subsequently cut up into bibs.   This will be my OMG for January as well as making a set or two of placemats - in red of course - for my very depleted giftie box.  


As you can see some pieces are much bigger than others and my aim was to move the fabrics around so that any directional prints are going the right way up.   
 
Next book on the pile to read


Summer has finally arrived here and I have resumed my swimming.   It is a lovey way to start the day.  


I need to make a trip to the shops today as I am down to my last sewing machine needle - not sure how that happened - and red thread as well as a couple of other items are on the list.  

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Good for you for not giving up on the recipe. I zoom with a cross stitch group but don't know of any sewing zooms. Do the machines get noisy? How do you manage it?
Looking forward to all you create in 2022!
