Pot Pie

So Minnesota has been a little confused lately on what Fall is supposed to be. I am not going to complain at all, but I mean quit teasing me! I’m a warm weather girl at heart, regardless of growing up here so when this time of year comes it’s all about the warm hearty comfort food!

Pot Pie Recipe

My husband and kids are major fans of pot pies. I’ve been on the fence with them for many many years. But this Cheddar Biscuit Topped Harvest Chicken Pot Pie is by far my absolute fave ever!

I think it has something major to do with it being topped with biscuits and not pie crust. I don’t have the best track record with pie crusts so they haven’t been my go to thing.

We have a neighbor down the street who grows this MASSIVE garden each year. We are just so lucky that he likes to drop off random produce throughout the Summer and Fall.

Anything from watermelons, corn, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes. I’d call ourselves very blessed to have him as our neighbor because lets face it, this girl does not have a green thumb.

Don’t get me wrong, we do grow a garden each year, but that’s my husbands baby. You won’t catch me in there unless I need something to cook with. Maybe one day I’ll get the itch, but I don’t have the best ability to keep plants alive!

I do however have a cactus and aloe that I do tend to, but thank goodness they are very low maintenance and have managed to stay alive! But that is just one event, we did however return from vacation very recently to find the little guy had fallen over into my sink.

If you didn’t know, cacti like to turn towards sunlight so we spin ours to keep it staring, well that week with out me spinning it made it turn and push off our windows and fall into the sink, luckily they are resilient and we were able to save it. Anyways, back to this pot pie recipe.
