Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

Serves: 4

Time: 1 hr

Freezes: Yes

Reheats: Yes

Kid Friendly Tasks: Ingredients Scatterer

I don’t know if with spring coming up it counts as pot pie season, but then again, is there ever really a bad time of year for chicken pot pie? I personally don’t think so. I like to make this recipe after I’ve made a roast chicken and have leftovers.

Classic Fried Rice

Classic Fried Rice

Serves: 1-2

Time: 5 mins

Freezes: Yes

Reheats: Yes

Kid Friendly Tasks: Mixer

So what to do? Well, make fried rice for lunch of course. The kids will eat something else and this is perfect for one person. I make mine vegetarian, but you could add any meat you have on hand. The classic addition of course is shrimp, which I love, but don’t ever quite seem to buy for whatever reason. Anyway, this cooks in 5 mins or so and we always have the basic ingredients on hand. This is your lunch today, just trust me.

After Thanksgiving Turkey Potpie

After Thanksgiving Turkey Potpie

Serves: 4

Time: 1 hr

Freezes: Yes

Reheats: Yes

Kid Friendly Tasks: Adding Veggies

Thanksgiving is over and I made it through the cooking marathon. Actually, this wasn’t much of a feat for me because I like to cook. My “helpers” tasted my ingredients for a round or two before wandering off to watch the parade. I made pies, sides and the grand bird. It was a large bird, 14 lbs in fact. And now I have a lot of turkey. I’ll make turkey soup and stock of course from the carcass, but the recipe below is actually my current favorite way to use up leftover turkey because it also uses up all of the sides dishes as well and having those dishes pre-made actually makes everything turn out better. Definitely a win. This recipe basically takes everything you love about Thanksgiving (okay well except for the pies) and puts it all into one cozy dish.
