Mystery Freezer Meals Project Update
Author's Request To Those Who Have Used Puff Pastry: I have some in my freezer fro Australia that I need to use soon. This picture from Pixabay is a meat pie using such puff pastry (not like a pie dough, which I know how to use). Can someone help me with a recipe?

For those who have been following my "Mystery Freezer Meals Project" that I started last month, you know that it has been a struggle for me in many ways, as I am trying to get past some habits that are decades old.
I am happy to report that I now know exactly what I have in the freezer. It is still full and I do not have to make any purchases for quite some time, but everything I have is recognizable.
I opened the last "mystery" container last night--a "must go" soup I made in September with raw sauerkraut, bits of smoked sausage, ham, and beef, a can of tomatoes, and other vegetables. It tasted like my cabbage rolls in soup form. I gave RGD the other container on Saturday as part of the meals package I put together for him. When I originally made it, I also supplied my daughter with many servings, packaged individually, as she is now single and living alone.
I have photos now and wish that I had taken the "before" shots. I still have hope that others will take me up on my recipe challenge and read through the freezer list article, as well. I need some new ideas. I will share the photos later, along with my updated freezer and pantry lists. (Articles are found by following the hyperlinks.)
For today, I am thawing one of the small packages of chowder base (fresh clams, bacon, onion, celery) I made up last summer, and an additional container of clam liquor. I will cook them together and add potatoes.
I wish so many of you lived local to me. I would cook for us all to share.
