Janus Pie

Janus pie - a two-faced pie!
Made from the foods of the old year (thanks in large part to the freezer) , added to new veg in a new form.
This one has Country Pate (whose first appearance was on December 24th), with grilled lamb (which had a starring role on New Years day) plus fresh onions, carrots and mushrooms and another  noble child of the freezer , the garden pea.
The double crust is made from pizza dough (very easy to make with some dried yeast, strong white flour, olive oil and water.

The evergreens are, of course, evergreen:

And some produce flowers:

In fact, many produce flowers and color :

And then there can be surprises :

Gather up the first month display and make a graceful bouquet
