Chicken Pot Pie, December 14, 2015
Our family birthday tradition is that whoever is having the birthday gets to pick whatever they want for dinner. Our boys both have December birthdays, so we often get to celebrate their birthdays with them. We had steak for Boot's 23rd while he was here over Thanksgiving weekend. For Pie's 21st, we thought we might go to Buffalo Wild Wings, as we did last year. Instead, though, he asked his mom to make him turkey sandwiches on cheap white bread with swiss cheese and squeeze mayonnaise. Not that there's anything wrong with turkey sandwiches---it just didn't seem like a very special dinner. He didn't want cake, either, asking that we skip it and just give him the money we would have spent on it. LOL. He got cake, anyway---a very small grocery store chocolate cake with chocolate ganache icing. Since I was making a chicken pot pie for a friend whose father-in-law passed away, I decided to make one for us, as well, in case we didn't want turkey sandwiches. Here's the recipe. This time, it took forever to cook. I may try it on 425 degrees next time. Might be time to get an oven thermometer!
