A Good Sunday

Hello everyone!

Hope you all had a nice weekend.  Ours was good.  We finally had beautiful weather.  It was sunny and mild today after a threat of snow just a few days ago.  The weather has been so fickle lately!

I woke up and had my favorite Starbucks coffee (Breakfast Blend).


Then I tried this new cereal from Special K.  I gave it two thumbs up!


Then I made some homemade chocolate chip cookies for the game later.


We watched the ATL Falcons play the SF 49er's.  We came so close to winning, but in the end the 49er's won.  Arrgghh!  


Then I made a chicken potpie for dinner.


This is a favorite of ours.  Doesn't it look good?


It is such an easy recipe too!

1 can cream of potato soup
1 can Veg-all (drained)
2 cups cooked diced chicken (~ 1 lb)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp pepper
2 9" deep dish frozen pie crusts (thawed)
1 egg (slightly beaten)

Combine all the ingredients together and spoon into pie crust.  Cover with top crust and crimp together with a fork.  Slip top crust and brush with egg.  Bake at 375 degrees for 40 min.

Yummy!

Hope you will give it a try.

Wishing you a great week ahead!  Tomorrow school is out for the MLK holiday.  

Thanks for stopping by.

Sounds like a lovely day! The weather was wonderful here too. I should have gone out and taken a walk, but while my little one napped I curled up with a good book instead. :)

I haven't eaten much in the past 2 days, and that chicken pot pie is looking yummy!

Looks like you had a nice cozy Sunday. Mmmmmm, chicken pot pie! Your recipe is a bit different from mine, I usually use Cream of Mushroom soup. I haven't tried it with an egg. I bet that helps hold everything together. It's been 8-12 degrees the past couple of days here in Michigan. I'm sitting by the fire as I type on the I-pad happily catching-up with blog reading!
