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!

Life and its accomplishments should be celebrated. My friend retired. He left me and now I’m all alone. Not really lol, but he was surely something special to me. I imagine he will spend many days on various golf courses and he will learn new ways let his chickens entertain him. I’ll definitely stay in touch for the eggs! (Joke!)
In honor of his second retirement, we threw him a party. He protested. He did NOT want a party. He thought he didn’t want a party. I’m sure he’s as happy as a hen that he let us do it for him. He was scared no one would come, but they did! And he was overjoyed and overwhelmed with love. Aside from coordination duties, I wanted to make him a few things from my heart. I made him golf themed cupcakes, a loaded chicken salad, shrimp and black bean caviar and punch. There was a tremendous amount of food. We tend to equate love with food, so he should know just how much we care.
In his farewell speech he told a room full of people that 1. I am his soul mate (but not …

Black Panther: Movie Review

Please tell me y'all have seen the movie? If you haven't, don't read this post!

Let me give you a little bit of my back story on this Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am a Marvel fan. I don't read the comics, but the movies?! I'm here for them. Some of them are blah, but I watch them anyway. Why? Because usually they overlap and share stories. So, in preparation for the opening of Black Panther, I watched ALL of the Marvel movies in order of the stories, not the release date. I followed CNET's guide and it was pretty accurate. I did not watch the TV shows because I would still be watching. You don't have to. The movies will fill you in pretty well.

Now, for what I thought.

1. This movie was beautiful! The colors, the wardrobes, the technology, the natural hair, the beautiful black people that starred in this film, it was amazing!

2. The women. OMG. The WOMEN! The strong women in the movie inspired me. Okoye makes me want to shave my hair back off. Nakia makes …

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

This was a big hit! It was my first tim…
