I have been doing a little reorganizing since Moon is going to be moving here in a couple of weeks.
All the blankets (filthy) are in one spot, the feed room has been changed around, her stall will be finished tomorrow etc. Kind of like spring cleaning.
It was not all that warm (under 30) but the sun managed to get rid of more snow.
Look at what's poking through the leaves in the back garden. That's a little premature.
I opted not to go to drumming today as it did not seem like a good idea to strain my arm with three hours of constant motion. At 4pm I got a phone call from one of the drummers to see how I was doing....so sweet and thoughtful. I have rarely missed a Saturday and they figured something was wrong.
So instead, I watched cooking shows and decided to make my first chicken pot pie. I have been making some mean chicken and biscuits for years, but felt like trying this.
Had two things going at once. Sauteed onions in one pan....
and in the other, organic boneless chicken thighs, celery, carrots and chicken stock.
Threw in some flat leafed parsley, fresh ground pepper, celery salt
and a big shot of white wine.
Meanwhile, I added a little more butter, sea salt and flour to the onions.
Poured in some chicken stock and milk (skim)
and let it thicken.
Added frozen peas to the chicken etc.....
and some boiled potato cubes.
Grabbed a little of the gravy and added some sour cream...mixed it back in
and combined everything.
Ooooopppps. Chore time.
When I got back in, placed a pie crust in a deep dish and added the goodies.
Put on the top crust and tried to put in holes and slits...didn't work too well because the gravy underneath was hot. Brushed with butter and baked it at 425 (on a cookie sheet) until the top browned. It was not very pretty...
but along with Jenny's salad (she joined us for dinner)...it was fantazzzzmagorickkkkkk!
Congrats to Ariana, Daniela and friends for doing the 5K Color Run in Vegas today.
Fast chicks. There were 6,000 participants!
