Pot Pie ready for the oven

 

I love a good pot pie. I know, the crust is flour and butter. But, I love a good pot pie. Boston Market, Kentucky Fried Chicken and once upon a time Banquet or Marie Callander Frozen Pot Pies. The frozen ones of late have changed though. They are mainly crust and gravy. What happened to all the vegetables and meat? Continue Reading
