I'm on a mission to clear out the refrigerator.
We're off on holidays in a couple of day's time so we are trying to finish off the food that we have in the fridge.
So on Friday night we had roast leg of lamb.....

with roast pumpkin, potatoes, sweet potato, onions,....
cauliflower and zucchini cheese ( au gratin )
and baby peas.

Mint jelly and gravy to finish it off.


I used all the vegetables I had so there would be some leftover veges.

Then I chopped them all up, added chopped up lamb, mint jelly and leftover gravy,
mixed them all together and made these using my trusty pie maker.

 When I had used all the shortcrust pastry, I made a couple of turnovers with some puff pastry.

That took care of Saturday and Sunday lunches and cleared the fridge.

Mission accomplished!



  1. Looks like a delicious meal Helsie! Hubby got take out for me tonight so I didn't have to cook. We have rain coming the next three days and I wasn't 100% today. Good old sinuses go crazy when the weather changes. I bet you are getting excited about your trip. Well, it's 12:31 AM here I better get off to bed.

  4. WOW... All that still in the fridge... You are some cook that's for sure. Please do tell us more about that pie maker gadget...Ok, so when you get back.... My interests are tapped. Have a wonderful trip if you don't have time to check in.

    I will testify and completely understand all while you are away, having just been there. One goes and one come home. We will all still be here.

    Happy, Safe Journey,

  5. Oh oh oh oh - Excitement plus must be in the air at your home!!!!
    I have been eyeing off the pie-makers and thinking about usuage - do you use it a lot?
    Hubby loves pies and I would probably do something like you with leftovers

  6. Folks,
    In our house we rarely have leftovers but if we do no-one eats them. Now I have a Pie Maker I often make a little extra when I'm cooking or sometimes make up fillings specially. Then I made a patch of perfect pies and freeze them for later. Great for Sunday night in front of TV or emergency meals with veges.
    I've even had friends over for a Pie Night and they loved them.
    PS I use frozen shortcrust pastry in my pies.

  7. OOh, I'm just off to bed and I've suddenly gone hungry.
    Your meat looks delicious Helen.
    and your beautiful vegetables!
    Hugs and Love Suex

  8. Aw, WOW! That looks and sounds just mouth-wateringly delicious. A pie maker? Pie Night? When you're next having on, please let me know. I'm coming!
    Where are you going on hols? Have a great time.

  9. I love that pie maker! What a great way to use leftovers!
    Have fun on your holiday!
