Trav had to go into work today because of problems with a project he's working on. Not anything his fault, but he spent about 5+ hours there today highlighting each issue, one by one, so that IT could fix it. No fun.

Gwen, Daisy, and I took a walk around the block. It was cold, but the fresh air was so nice, and we were bundled up warm. Nap today was overdue by the time we got done with lunch. An early wake up time + a bad cold = a tired, cranky Gwenie.

But then she slept for 2 hours and 40 minutes!

The rest of the afternoon together was beautiful. Just relaxing, reading, playing, and making this:

Chicken Pot Pie... so so good.

Girl was down by 7:30, too. Hopefully all the sleep will help kick this cold to the curb.

Recipe after break (different, better one then last time!).

  1. Preheat oven to 350*. 
  2. Slice 2 chicken breasts into bite sized pieces, sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and rosemary, and saute in a large pan with a little butter or bacon grease until cooked. 
  3. Add diced carrots, onions, and corn; cook for a minute until slightly softened. Add minced garlic, stir and cook for another minute. 
  4. Add one, small can chicken broth, ~ 1 cup of cream, and a few tablespoons flour. Season with a shake of powdered ginger, 3 shakes ground sage, salt, pepper, rosemary. Mix well.
  5. Add peas and let cook for one more minute while you spray your glass pie pan with olive oil spray. Pour chicken mixture into dish and cover with pie crust. Cut slits in top to vent. 
  6. Pop in oven for ~20 - 25 minutes, until pie crust is lightly browned and chicken mixture is bubbly and thickened.
