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 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.


  • 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

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
