Back in the saddle - Chicken pot pie

Sometimes taking a break is a good thing.

And a big thank you to everyone who has been understanding during this hard time (the first year anniversary of my mom's death is the same date as my birthday - and, yes, it is/has happened this month).

I will share with you today something I made a couple of weeks ago.

Chicken pot pie.
 No recipe but just lots of (hopefully) pretty pictures of food.

Homemade biscuit dough.
The filling was a simple rough with shredded (cooked) chicken, peas and spices.

And, of course, there was a serving for the dogs.

I brushed some egg wash over the dough and it went into the oven.

After 20 minutes in a 400 degree oven they looked like this:

Chicken pot pie is the embodiment of comfort food.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful (pre) holiday season.
