Tuesday night's weird combo
Vegetable pie (whaaat!) and oysters. Don't cringe. Both are delicious.
The recipe for veggie pie came from a girlfriend years ago. It's really just a bunch of vegies (onion, garlic, cauliflower, carrots) stir-fried and seasoned up a bit. Only then the vegies get tossed into a pre-baked pastry crust (hanging around from holiday cooking) and covered with a couple of whisked-up eggs and a sprinkle of cheese. While we don't have it very often (or maybe because we don't), it's always satisfying.
The Fanny Bay oysters, from Vancouver Island, are one of the foods that would qualify if we were following the 100-Mile Diet. Hours if you're travelling by car (and ferries), but not that far at all if you take the route the gulls use.
Both of these cooked up in the oven together. Something I always love on these still-too-wintry days.
