Doesn't this picture just warm the cockles of your heart? (What is a cockle?)
I love it for so many reasons. First of all, I'm crazy about small dishes. It must be because I never played with dolls as a kid. (Although I do recall buying a miniature ceramic tea set with my own money when I was about 10. Very fine quality, it was.)
Second, this little meal was prepared and stored in the freezer, with the pastry top unbaked. I'm in love with my chest freezer, and it never mistreats my food as long as it's wrapped very well. So along comes a day when I don't know what to eat, but I remember that little pot on ice... Convenient.
Finally, I love this food because the filling was actually leftovers from a previous meal. Stewed chickpeas with Moroccan flavors.
The frozen goodie sat out in a sunbeam (on top of the freezer) to thaw for a little while, then went into the oven to warm and brown up.
Bean pie. Funny.
