Snow Day Food: Beef and Vegetable Potpie with Cheddar Biscuits

If I'd known it was going to snow overnight, I would've saved this recipe for today:

That's a half-version of this beef potpie, topped with cheddar biscuits, from the November 2010 issue of Food & Wine. I made it last Saturday night, when it had already been cold out for a few days and I was looking for some serious rib-sticking food.

And rib-sticking it was. It was also pretty easy to make (and cheap, too, since the beef in question is the ground sort). I was a little leery about the cheddar biscuit part, since I shy away from anything that even remotely seems like baking, but making them was easy. And even though it looked like a big old mess when I put it in the oven, after the potpie cooked and sat for 10 minutes out of the oven, it really did look like the photo in the magazine (the above picture was taken just after it came out, when it was still a little liquidy).

Nice flavor, very hearty, and well-rounded, if not strictly healthy. All in all, a good winter meal. Perfect for a day
