A “Pinteresting” Recipe

It’s a well known fact that I don’t like to cook.  Well, mostly, I’m afraid of cooking.  I have this fear of time management.  When do I start the side dish?  How long will the meat take?  You get the drift.

So, now that I have someone for whom to cook, I’m attempting to expand my culinary horizons…albeit a bit slowly.

food, meals, dinner, chicken, pot pieTonight, I made a chicken pot pie.  Not EXACTLY from scratch, but close enough.  I used this recipe I found by Googling.  I tried looking for stuff on pinterest first, but I got overwhelmed by all the shiny distractions.  But, since I’m trying all things social media, I immediately pinned it when I found it.  It’s a good way to stay organized and believe me, I need all the organizational help I can get.

Honestly, this recipe was pretty easy.  I mean the ingredients were simple. I added a chopped up potato since Paul isn’t a big veggie fan.  Also, I doctored up the cream of chicken soup.  First, I got the less fat one.  Then, I added some garlic powder and basil.  I think it helped a bit.

I was a little skittish about the dough.  Being a perfectionist, I wanted the fluted crust to look as pretty as the stuff in the professional looking photo.  Heck, I’d even take two flutes looking right.  I just can’t seem to figure out how to do it.

Regardless, it was a tasty dinner.

I really wish there was a meal planning app.  You know something that I could plug in the stuff I want to make and it spits out exact instructions on what to make when.  That or I just need to take a freaking Home Ec class.
