Tried New Recipe

February 20th, 2012 at 07:25 pm

I worked for about 4 hours today. DH was home from work today. So we spent the afternoon together. I love spending time with him during the day during the week. Our goal is to one day both work from home together.

I tried a new recipe today. I made mini chicken pot pies. They were pretty good! The recipe is so easy. I cooked chicken breasts. Once the chicken was done, I shredded it. I also seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, and herbs de provence. Then I mixed it with 1 can cream of chicken soup. You can add peas and carrots but I did not have any. Take a muffin pan and spray with non stick spray. Open a can of biscuits. Put one uncooked biscuit at the bottom of each muffin can. Press each biscuit down and at least half way up each individual muffin can. Put the chicken/cream of chicken mixture in each biscuit. I topped each with a little shredded cheddar cheese. I cooked it for about 15/20 minutes. It was so good!

DH and I have eaten out way too much in the past. I am changing that. Plus it is not healthy to eat fast food all the time. So I am trying to come up with quick and creative recipes to cook on week nights. I do love the traditional dinner and usually try to cook a good meal on Sundays. We are also going to start eating together at the table. We don't have any kids yet so it is easy for us to just plop down in front of the tv with dinner. But that is a habit i want to change too. When I was growing up my parents always ate breakfast together every morning before the kids got up. We always had a family dinner in the evenings at the dinner table. Those are traditions I want my husband and I to have together too, especially after we have kids. Breakfast every morning may be a little harder. But maybe we can aim to have breakfast together at least one morning during the week and on the weekends.

Another great thing about meals at home: we save a lot of money. That's always good!

    That sounds really good. I make a pot pie that has no crust on the bottom by spooning in leftover shredded chicken or turkey, peas, carrots, potatoes, and gravy into ramekins. I make a quick pie crust that I cut out with a spare ramekin and just lay the crust on top, piercing with a fork. I bake them for about 30 to 35 minutes in a 400 degree oven. I've used leftover pizza dough, too. Never thought about using biscuits. I have a good half from scratch (uses Krusteaz) biscuit recipe I might try next time as pie dough can be such a pain.

    You are so right that eating out a lot often leads to strain on both the budget and the body. Groceries are usually a lot cheaper, and if you find healthy foods that you enjoy then it also offers insurance of long-term benefits for fiscal and physical health! Good luck with your efforts.
