While Jordan delved into… or revisted, rather, Fable II from the comfort of the couch, I decided that I was going to put down all my work and bake. Although I would have prefered baking myself outside in the sun, it was quite rainy, so I took to the kitchen instead.
I realized we had chicken, celery, carrots, onions and chicken broth, paired with a roll of pie crust dough in the refridgerator, so what else would I make besides a chicken pot pie!? I popped downstairs to the store to get the remaining necessities and began my baking adventure.
- celery seeds
- chicken broth
- frozen green peas
- salt and pepper
- chicken, diced
This isn’t a cookbook, so I won’t bore you with instructions on how to make said pie, but here are some photos of the process:
Filled the 9 1/2 inch pan with cooked goodness
I drew and cut out a stencil. I chose fall-esque leaves and dyed them with food coloring to liven up the pie crust.
I took a sharp knife and cut out letters (not traced for times sake) into dough. Note: This is easier the colder the dough is.
Stuck it in the oven and waited
and waited…for it to cool.
Then sliced. Mmmm!!
Looking forward to making more pies with creative designs. I think I’ve discovered I like baking more than cooking.
