Homemade Pot Pie

This was SO good! I looked at a few different recipes for a basic chicken pot pie on Pinterest and then made it my own. For the gravy I used one can of Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup, about a half a can of milk, one half of a jar of classic chicken gravy (Heinz), seasoned with a bit of salt, celery flakes and onion powder. For the vegetables, I used one Yukon Gold potato, peeled and cooked with sliced carrots. Near the end of the cooking time I added some peas and corn. Drained all and stirred into gravy along with my chopped rotisserie chicken leftovers from Costco. Put mixture into 9x13" baking dish. Rolled out the puff pastry sheet with a bit of semolina flour to keep it from sticking, laid it over pie filling, made a few vents in top and then lightly brushed top with melted butter. Bake at 400 for 30 to 35 minutes. Comfort food made so easy!

This is an older retired set called Lucky Me! from Stampin' Up! that I think is just adorable. Being mostly Irish, I do sent St. Patrick's Day cards to my family members and always make up a batch of Irish Potato Candy. I'll be posting some pictures and a recipe in March, so stop back for a visit.
This card uses all Stampin' Up! supplies: Whisper White and Mint Macaron card stocks, Crumb Cake for the window framelit die which was then swiped with Soft Suede and Espresso to give it a wood grain look. Colored the leprechaun in markers and added textured to the "paneling" with the Wood Grain embossing folder.

I also did the inside with this set, stamping the little shamrocks in Wild Wasabi on the one side and the full leprechaun with the sentiment on the inside.
