This is Me

I'm a displaced South/Central Texan living in Louisville Kentucky
I am a princess because I am a child of the Risen King! My background is Baptist, but believe I have a relationship not a religion. I married my childhood sweetheart and together we have raised two wonderful children and got them married off. I love everything about being a wife and mother. Now guess what? I am going to be a GRANDMA!! We are so excited for this next step in our lives.

Easy Pot Pie

Today we are getting a rain snow mix and being told this is what we will can expect for tomorrow as well. Yuck! Just a week or so ago we had about a week in the high 70's and even hitting 80!! ahhh, I had a tase of Spring and I liked it!! But that was all we had now it's been back to this mess and it's days like this I really miss living in Texas and near Galveston.

I decided today I am going to make Pity Party Pot Pie.  Oh, ok I don't like Pity Parties either. But I have a lot of pain today and I am a bit grumpy about the weather too. This is an easy Pot Pie and I thought I would share the recipe. It's very yummy and the left overs - if you have any, warm up very well!

 1 egg
1 tablespoon water
6 cups diced cooked turkey or chicken
5 cups frozen mixed vegetables or your favorite frozen vegetable blend
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups  Chicken Broth or Chicken Stock
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed according to package directions
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh herbs (parsley, thyme and/or oregano)
  • Heat the oven to 400°F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.
  • Stir the turkey and vegetables in a 3-quart (13 x 9-inch) shallow baking dish.
  • Heat the butter in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook and stir for 3 minutes. Gradually stir the broth into the saucepan. Cook and stir for 5 minutes or until the mixture boils and thickens. Stir in the black pepper. Pour the broth mixture over the turkey mixture.
  • Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 13 x 9-inch rectangle. Place the pastry over the filling. Press the pastry to the rim to seal. Brush the pastry with the egg mixture and sprinkle with the herbs.  Cut several slits in the pastry.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is hot and bubbling.  Let cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes.

This looks so yummy, especially the crust! I wonder if my kids would like? I have never made a pot pie. I should give it a try.

That pie looks delish. My husband loves pot pies too so I might have to give it a go. I like your new blog look too. I have missed some posts lately.

My cousin has been having a lot of pain lately. I told her that I've heard it's not so much what the weather is, but that it changes so much. Something to do with the pressure. I hope you are feeling better now.
