This is a new series based on a fun discussion on our forum. One of our very creative members, Inzala, came up with several very fun recipes. We thought we would share them with you. Here is the first recipe in the series.
TOPIC: “Whats the Special”… Great stuff from Muse and mmcgriff… Stews / Soups; Pies; Bread; Wines; Cheese; … then Apple Pie was mentioned… that is when my mind wondered to Legend. Pies… Apples… don’t ask me how, but brain saw the wood elf being captured from the little hay filled cell by the “cook”; Una beatching after being busted by Jack; Una gets the keys.. and THERE HE IS poppin out of that huge Pot-Pie! Apple in mouth; herb sprigs falling off around him… THAT is WHEN my thoughts went to this…
