It's that time again..... Food Experiment Time!
I really like to cook and try new things I haven't done before, because....... well it's fun. Being me, I always find a recipe to follow and then don't follow it all the way, b/c there is some ingredient that I don't have in the house or one I know I'm not gonna buy. Why don't I buy it, you ask? Because... what if I make the dish and find that I don't like it and then I have something like a bottle of white wine that I'm not gonna use again? So yeah, I end up pretty much making the new and improved version of a recipe that I've never tasted anyway. lol!
It all started with Granny's apron..
And Aunt Lukie's Chicken Pot Pie recipe... She has the ONLY.... and I seriously mean the only chicken pot pie recipe that I've ever liked. Ever............
I will admit that it's somewhat altered.... again.. you gotta work with what you got.
A few carrots.. (and some peas not shown)
Some rough chopped onion..
Garlic, Salt and pepper to taste..
And then........ a pie was born!!! bwahahahaha!
All done! This is only the 3rd pie I've ever made in my entire life. The first two were for Thanksgiving quite a few years back. They didn't turn out so well. Never mix baking your first pie, with using your oven in a new apartment for the first time either. You only end up with two burnt and rock hard Chess pies. This one almost when to the darkside as well, but I smelled it before it was too far gone. I totally had the timer on... it just didn't take 40 mins to cook is all. :)
It was still yumtastic though, so I'm happy with the results. Did you have a food experiment lately?
