Comfort Food, Without the Guilt!
Seriously, this dish is easy peasy! If you ever want some comfort food, but don’t want the guilt…this is the ticket!
Being a busy mom, I really love yummy dishes that are filling and super easy AND fast to make.
It aint’ pretty, but it “shore is goooood!”.
I always say that this dish “isn’t the prettiest”, but, you can’t beat a good old fashioned chicken pot pie! I adapted this recipe from an old recipe that I found years ago in an old cookbook.
I have always loved a “biscuity” kind of crust on a pot pie. Some of y’all might like the “flakey” kind of crust, but I’m a biscuit kind of girl. 🙂
The bisquit/crust is made with a tiny bit of cornmeal and almond flour, so it has the same texture of a traditional pot pie crust.
I don’t know about you, but I have some weeks where I am “pulling my hair out” in frustration. With kids, with schedules, with life. If you do not have those weeks, please email me. I’d love to take notes from you :).
With all that frustration, we get in “mom mode”. The mode where we just “don’t care”. We want to be “done” with mountains of laundry, never ending dishes and hearing the screeching version of “maaawwwwmmmaaaa!!!” ALL. DAY. LONG.
I have had one of those weeks, this week.
Let me just tell you, when you have 4 kids…keeping a clean and non-chaotic house is IMPOSSIBLE. I have had to resign myself to that realization every day and try to “just go with it”.
I am learning that it is OK to have toys on the floor every waking moment. It is OK to have a few dishes in the sink. It is OK to not finish every check-box on the school planner. It is OK to still be n your PJ’s at 10 am.
What matters most is that I spend time with my kids. That I am “present” with them. What matters are the talks where we sit down and pray together, or when we talk about what the words, “discipline and consequence” mean. Where we are able to say “sorry” to each other, forgive each other and then move on with or day.
All that chaos that causes me to go into “mom mode” is worth it because I have perspective. Perspective of what’s important.
I don’t get it right every time, but I am learning.
Back To The Food…
All that to say, sometimes you just need a simple and healthy meal. Something easy to throw together that will be “comforting” in those “mom mode” days.
Enter this amazingly easy chicken pot pie! Yes Please!
Be encouraged mama! You are doing the most important job in world! Raising children to be responsible and disciplined adults! I know it’s hard, but it matters!
God Bless and enjoy!!!
