I hate the drudgery of cooking dinner every night. I think of it the same way some people feel about making their bed every morning: "Why should I cook dinner? We're only gonna be hungry again in 4 hours!"
The truth is, I sometimes get in the mood to cook or bake, and I can almost convince myself I'm enjoying the process, especially if I'm making something everyone is going to eat. I like it when we have company because I can try out recipes that wouldn't be well received by my (somewhat) fussy family.
Tonight I'm going to share with you one of my favorite meals to make:
Turkey Pot Pie
It all starts with a dough from my bread machine.
Then simmer some potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, salt and pepper in chicken broth until tender.
Add some left over cooked turkey breast to the vegetables and broth, and simmer a while longer.
Drain off the extra broth and pile meat and veggies into the pie. Cover with the creamy mixture (basically cream of chicken soup, milk, and some spices.)
Add the top crust to the pie and "wash" with milk. I'm still trying to perfect the artistic end of working with dough. I'm getting better but I'm still a bit rough around the edges... literally.
Bake. And tah dah! Yummy comfort food for a cold night.
Although we have had a rather mild winter, tonight it a cold and windy night. The perfect night for a meal like this! Unfortunately, this is a meal I prepared a few weeks ago and I'm just getting around to blogging about it now. Tonight, I'm eating SUBWAY.
