Mince Pie for Picnics by maggiemae

Mince Pie for Picnics

This is not high cuisine and patchy work but is here to show how I get my 5 veggies/day. Its got broccoli, parsnip, carrot and onion in it plus fresh herbs from my glass house.

Three good things;
1. Even though I made it for a picnic it was nice to use for an indoor meal at first.
2. The beach picnic might have to wait - mist with rain forecast. Indoor picnics are good.
3. Cherries.
Looks very tasty!

@ubobohobo Its even nicer cold - so if it gets hot like it is where you are, thats the way to eat it!

@fugitivemoments Takes a bit of planning but generally lasts for several days!

@tonydebont A meal in a moment, Tony!

I love the colors. Great photo of this pie, Maggiemae. Enjoy your indoor picnic and the cherries. I miss that time of the year.
December 30th, 2014  
@darsphotos Thanks Darlene - your Cherry time comes when we are cold and wet!
December 30th, 2014  
@maggiemae Yes, we are totally opposite each other. It just comes and goes so fast it seems.

I've never had mince pie. And I'm not usually a food photo person but you made this look very artistic. That's a good way to get your veggies.
December 30th, 2014  
That looks great! I'm feeling hungry now!
December 30th, 2014  
Transitioning dish and nice capture.
December 30th, 2014  
Nice food shot, Maggie. Simple -- and beautiful colors.
December 30th, 2014  
Would try this any day Maggie...Fav
December 30th, 2014  
The skill in the cooking and the photography make it look very appealing!
December 30th, 2014  
That certainly looks very tasty.
December 30th, 2014  
Yum!
December 30th, 2014  
Very healthy as I see more vege than mince.
December 30th, 2014  
@yaorenliu Yes, thats true, Yao - in some ways I like all mince as you get that flavour only whereas here you have the flavour of the broccoli particularly coming out!
December 30th, 2014  
Woh - this looks seriously good. And great to put the veggies to good use too
December 30th, 2014  
Looks as if you made a great job of it.
December 31st, 2014  
Looks yummy. So nice to be able to use your own produce too.
December 31st, 2014  
Looks very good! And reminds me of something my mom used to make when I was little. Might have to dig that recipe out now...
January 1st, 2015  
Looks both yummy and filling - perfect picnic fodder :-)
January 2nd, 2015  
Wonderful food capture. Do you make the crust ? It sure looks filling.
January 2nd, 2015  
@lesip No, I buy the savoury short crust pastry. I save the time I would spend on making this pastry for photography!
January 2nd, 2015  
@maggiemae good idea... I buy crusts also
January 2nd, 2015  
This looks just like my kind of pie Maggiemae... pity you live so far away!
January 2nd, 2015  
@vignouse John ate most of it, Richard - must be a man thing!
