Hey!  It’s Thursday.  Are we glad about that?  Of course we are. Thursday is a good day.  Every day is a good day when you are breathing.  Correctamundo?  Exactly.

Sooooooo….what about this pot pie thing?  I have been craving pot pie.  I have been looking at pot pie recipes.  I have come to the conclusion that when I made ours…I must have combined lots of recipes in my brain and just started cooking.  This is how it went:

In an iron skillet pour about two cups of turkey stock.  Let it heat up and then simmer whatever kinds of veggies you want in it.  I used potatoes, carrots, celery, onion and frozen peas. (Throw the peas in at the last, so they stay fresh tasting.)  Cook until veggies are tender. Then add however much chicken you want, two tablespoons of unsalted butter, two cans of cream of chicken and a can of cream of celery.  Stir and cook until heated through.  Okay…now on this next part…I cheated. I used cheater pie crust.  It was grand…because it made it taste like a “real” pot pie.  (The kind that we grew up on as kids, from the freezer section of the store.)  I just put pie crust in the bottom, poured in the filling and then pie crust on the top.  Bake at 425 for about 30 minutes or until browned.  You can salt and pepper your filling to taste and add a little thyme.  (I didn’t type this out in recipe form…cause really, it’s just one of those things that you can read through…and whip it up yourself….but I will do better next time.) 🙂  I served it with rolls and a salad.  YUM!

(The cheater pie crust…with that creamy, dreamy, screamy filling was soooooo good.)

I hope that Thursday treats you well, Dirt Roaders.  I also hope that you make a warm and cozy pot pie.  You deserve it.
