I felt like this day would never come. After a week that just kept dragging on and on, I could hardly believe it when the school bell rang at 3:00. My dad has always said it’s good to have something to look forward to, and I was certainly looking forward to this weekend.
This weekend is great for two reasons:
- I got home to find this lovely surprise from my husby. He knows me so well!
- I got to head down to my alma mater with my mom tonight to spend some time with my sister and participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s!
After battling torrential rains, sidewalk rivers, and nearly getting struck by lightning, we finally arrived at ISU just in time for dinner. My sister had prepared a comforting family recipe that hit the spot after running through the rain (in soggy flip flops). This meal is perfect for a stormy night in, conversations that continue around the dinner table long after the dishes have been cleared away, and for spending time with the ones you love. Hope you enjoy as much as I do!
Chicken Pot Pie
- Pillsbury pie crusts
- 2 cups diced chicken
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1 cup frozen corn
- 1/2 cup frozen beans
- 1 can mixed vegetables
- Salt and pepper to taste
What to do:
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Place one pie crust on the bottom of a pie pan.
- To make the filling, combine remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir.
- Place filling into the first pie crust and cover with the second pie crust. Pierce crust with a fork a few times.
- Place in oven and bake for about 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
- Remove from oven and allow to set/cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
In order to prevent the edges of the crust from becoming too dark, my mom always used one of these nifty tools when she would make this recipe. Covering the edges with foil would also work.
I can’t think of a better way to start the weekend than by enjoying a delicious meal with my favorite ladies! Despite the rain, my mom, sister, and I are enjoying being in each other’s company again. Are there any recipes you enjoy making on a rainy day?
