Cold Weather Comfort {Food)

It's cold!
No seriously, cold like winter.
I get that I live in the Midwest, but this is unseasonable. Sigh...well, we must deal with what we're dealt, right? I deal by drinking hot liquids & eating yummy hot food. Last night I made us a {g i a n t} chicken pot pie. It was delish.

{I used a springform pan, ha!}
I could use some better detail work, such a crust with an edge. Also using a pie pan may have helped, or individual mini cocottes.

It was quite good though...& I'm sure quite horrifically unhealthy. I based mine on a classic recipe, but used fresh veggies, skim milk, reduced sodium chicken broth, chicken breast meat only & so on, hoping to cut down on the really bad stuff.

And since there's two of us, we ended up with plenty of leftovers.
Stay warm!

Yum. This looks SO good. And definitely the sort of thing I'm craving right now... we're rainy and in the mid 40s up in New England. :(

I wish it was cooler here. the high was 86 today and humid!

But we're having soup for dinner anyway- since it's rainy outside.
