Our first collaborative kitchen effort

I present Matt's and my first "kick at the can" at a beef and mushroom pie. Matt made the filling (with advice on food substitutions — i.e., ketchup for tomato paste — coming from me), and I made the puff pastry topping (with Matt providing me with enough baby-free time to do so).

We find out tonight how it turned out.

6:19 pm update: Awesome.

The best damn beef pie I've ever had. It was clearly homemade, with simple ingredients and "clean" flavours. The puff pastry turned out really well, too. It wasn't undercooked at all and nice and tender and flaky. My only regret is that I couldn't use butter to make it.

Dan and I have tag-teamed on many a dessert pie, but we're still working up the fortitude to attempt something savoury. This looks awesome. Go team LLoyd!

That's funny -- it would take me far more courage to attempt a sweet pie with Matt than going the route we did. :)
