pie…pot pie…turkey pot pie

When my husband and I were first married we had to learn to stretch the dollar.  Sometimes the local grocery store would run a 10/$10 special on different items in the store.  One of the items was pot pies.   You can imagine that we ate more than our share of the grocer special.  So much so that we haven’t eaten them in years.  But one of my favorite foodies posted a recipe for turkey pot pie, and that got me thinkin’. 

I had shown my husband the post about the turkey pot pie and we agreed it looked enticing.  I mentioned that I would be willing to make these for Sunday dinner.  Well it obviously sounded very good to him because I came home from church/work Sunday afternoon to find everything ready and waiting.

Here is what happened!  By the way…they were delicious! Before we were even finished eating my sweet husband was already thinking about the next time we would make Pot Pies!

    That looks really good!

    I grew up on the store pot pies, because they were so cheap, and they always had peas in them! I HATE peas!

    But this one looks really good. I may have to try it.

      StacyT, our kitchen is a “no pea” zone as well. The recipe is really easy and very tasty. Let me know what you think if you try it.

    Hey girl-
    Do you freeze the extra pies?

      Hi Jane, We cooked all them this time. But I am already thinking about making a batch and freezing them to see how they turn out. I will let you know what happens. Thanks for stopping by the blog!

      HI Mamaaun, my sweet husband found them at Kroger on the isle with the disposable baking tins. Good Luck! If you try the recipe let me know how it turns out.
