Ok, finally, the reason for this blog!
Yesterday, I decided first what I wanted to make for dinner, then I headed to the grocery store for my regular items for the week as well as my "creation items" and came home and started preparing. Now, let me just start by saying I do not cook off a recipe. I did however look up 3 different ones and created my own version. I am only saying this because if you ask for the recipe I probably cannot give you the exact measurements because I truly do not measure but I can give sort of the idea! Sorry...
OK, seriously here is the reason...!!
HOMEMADE CHICKEN POT PIES!!!!!
Oh my goodness it was so amazing yet so easy!1. I made the crust but added some Parmesan to make it extra yummy and flaky
2. The filling is: onion, carrot, peas, corn, parsnip (awesome addition), celery, mushrooms, parsley, cooked chicken, a dash of cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, a touch of heavy hipping cream, no sodium chicken stock and garlic.
3. I topped the crust with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper while it cooked and topped it with fresh grated parm when cooling.
4. It took me 25 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes so cool!!! How easy is that. I am sure you could even make it ahead and cook when ready.
5. I really wanted to make individual pot pies but my lack of dishes is proving to be more painful than I thought. (oh well, like Brett says, all our wedding present will be like new when we finally get then again- always keeping things in a positive light!!!)
I always have a batch of cookies in the freezer for the nights when Brett is needing something sweet! This recipe is awesome! Replace the brown sugar with 2 tbsp of honey and leave the rest the same! So delicious and so much less sugar! I also do half flour and half oatmeal! I learned this from Peggy- the cookie queen!
