So along with having 10 quilted stockings to make, 6 blog posts to write and about 15 batches of Christmas Goodies to bake before Christmas– I still have to be ‘present’ in my home.
The cooking can’t end, the kiddos still need diapers, and my husband is still hungry when he gets home from work!
I love having a quick solution to dinner – one where especially I just say something along the lines of, ‘Honey! The Pot Pies are in the Freezer. Throw them in the microwave. Follow the directions!’ And a few minutes later we’ve got dinner…
- Best part? NO DISHES!!
- I’m pretty used to
- – but lately I haven’t had the time or energy to defrost the chicken in advance, then cook it and shred it and then make the pies… I mean, those can really be a labor of love. (Especially with two toddlers in the house!)
- Not that long ago I had purchased some strange brand $0.99 pot pies for quick lunch options – and they were over salted, and really not that good.
- So I was *REALLY* hoping that these would taste more like home-cooking.
- And they did! They were so yummy! The crust is flaky and the insides aren’t over salty or fake tasting. The chicken actually tasted like the chicken that I shred and not like a chewy piece of rubber.
- I liked that I could throw it into the microwave and have it come out as if I baked it in the oven!
