I Made A Pie :)

A Pot-Pie that is!

A recent trip to Jason's Deli inspired my Sunday night meal. I ordered the Pot Pie Soup and it was less than stellar. It was flavorless...although I did enjoy the piece of puff pastry on the top.

So I decided to try my own quick and easy rendition just so I could get rid of the craving for a good one. It almost worked lol.

The only thing I didn't have on hand was pie crusts. And no I was not ambitious enough to turn my mixer on so I stopped to the store and bought some.

The first bowl I felt it was just OK, but it tasted much better for lunch today...next time I will definitely marinate the meat (and thaw it out lol).

A lazy meal that was very comforting...and easy...

I sauteed the chicken in olive oil, removed it from the pan. Added a pat of the smart balance and cooked the veggies.

then I chopped the chicken up and added it back to the pan. Added the gravy and simmered for 5 minutes.

Then I placed one of the pie crusts in the bottom of the dish, dumped everything in, and placed the other pie crust on the top. I wasn't concerned about aesthetics, only eating lol

I cut 3 slits in the top for the steam to escape and baked it at 425 (oh yeah preheat the oven) for 40 minutes and covered the crust edges with foil for the last 20 minutes so it wouldn't burn.

Ingredients

  • Chicken tenderloins (they were still frozen until they hit the pan)
  • 1 jar roasted turkey gravy (Heinz)
  • Zoe's seasoning blend
  • Olive oil
  • Smart balance
  • 2 roll-out pie crusts (Pillsbury)
  • Vegetable soup mix (Kroger brand)
  • A handful of peas and carrots mix (Kroger brand)

See, nothing fancy :) --I only used 1 jar of the gravy

Very, very simple

I seasoned the meat as it cooked

Casserole dish from World Market

The end result...I was too lazy to be fancy lol


Later gators!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July 21st...no scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
