I made two kinds of mini pies for our lunches - first, I had some ground goat. I found it at the local Halal market, she ground it fresh for me. Since she barely spoke English, I got 4 lbs of it. No other option. Good thing I like goat.
If you have never tried goat, you should. It's a lot like lamb, but leaner. And so delicious.
So, The Hubby cooked up some of the goat with caramelized onion, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. I mixed in some baked potatoes and green peas along with crumbled feta cheese. There's a mini pie filling for you!
I used my lovely mini pie maker (ok, fine, mini cupcake maker... but in my mind, it's for pie!) and store-bought crust (no time for homemade), and made my mini pot pi pies. I baked them for 14 minutes.
I also decided to make some mini banana cream pudding pies (I had banana cream pudding mix). For this, I pressed the pie dough into the pie maker, and filled with dry beans so that it wouldn't puff up. Once they were cool, I filled them with pudding pie filling. Super easy.
To finish out the lunches, The Girl and I have clementines. I have some veggie chips and apple slices.
