I am surrounded by great home cooks – my dad, my mom, Bill, my sister and Bill’s mom. I have to try really hard to be a cook. I’ve been with Bill for over ten years now; and although I’ve made huge improvements in the cooking arena he still reminds about that one time I served mostly frozen Sam’s Club purchased Boston Cream Pie for his birthday to his whole family. And his mom bakes everything from scratch. What can I say? I’m just classy like that :). So – my point – cooking for some comes easily. I am not one of those people. But last night I made an AWESOME homemade chicken pot pie from The Pioneer Woman Cooks. Well – mostly homemade – I did buy the pie crust for the top but that’s such a minor detail – right? Not only did I make the chicken pot pie, I switched out some ingredients to try and make it a little healthier and IT STILL WORKED! Major cooking accomplishment for me. I also cut out little pie crust pumpkins from the remaining dough which TOTALLY made up for the fact that I bought the dough. And that was on a Monday. My work here is done folks – Domino’s for the rest of the week :). (totally kidding) (maybe) (I’ll throw some Mac N Cheese in there) (And pb&j)
Just before popping it in the oven.
Ready to dig in!
