French Meat and Vegetable Pie
Some time ago, a co-worker brought a meat pie to lunch. The aroma was familiarand after one taste, I was amazed to discover it was the same pie my grandmother used to serve when I was a youngster! She shared the recipe, and I have been enjoying it ever since.Rita Winterberger, Huson, Montana
