Dinner Party

I made this for a dinner party with friends in the old neighborhood:

Not sure why the photo is so blurry but you get the idea. Apples and frisee, spicy shrimp (sauté) and roasted butternut squash puree. I had never made it before and couldn't quite get my head around it but the combination was so compelling...

Everyone seemed to enjoy it and I particularly liked the puree - I made it a few nights before and kept having to taste test it :).


What better way to use up some "stuff" on a cold winter night? On hand were chicken bits (from a roasted chicken), green beans, carrots, peas and homemade mushroom soup (from a green bean casserole). All we had to do was make the pastry top!
