Tasty Tuesday: Individual Chicken Pot Pies


Welcome to a new little segment I've decided to do each week: Tasty Tuesdays!  I often post recipes on Tuesdays, so I thought "why not make it official?".

Next week I might even do a link-up so you could share a recipe, too~would you be interested

This week I've planned really child-friendly dinner menus since my hubby is out of town.  However, I want them to be menus that I enjoy, too.  Last night we had one of my favorites, too: individual chicken pot pies.  

Now before you decide that this is just another variation of the same thing, let me tell you it's a tad bit different--it has cheese!  That's always a plus in my book and especially in my kids' books!  Two kinds of cheese, as a matter of fact!  My son (who is by-far the pickiest in our family) loves this meal and eats his whole bowl.  That makes me happy:)


Individual Chicken Pot Pies
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 cup of shredded, cooked chicken
(I used turkey last night)
1 can cream of chicken soup
(I prefer to use this recipe)
Dash of onion powder
Dash of celery salt
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup milk
*****
Preheat oven to 400F.  
Mix together vegetables, chicken (or turkey), and soup in a medium bowl. 
Divide mixture evenly between 4 (2-cup) ovenproof bowls*.
Top each bowl with shredded cheese.
Mix flour and baking powder together in a medium bowl.  
Cut in the cream cheese with a pastry blender (or a fork) until
the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  
Stir in milk with fork until dry ingredients are moistened and a 
dough forms.  
Divide dough into 4 parts.  Pat out each part into 5" circles on a
lightly floured surface.  Prick tops several times with fork to allow
steam to escape.  Place dough rounds on top of each chicken mixture.
Place bowls on a baking sheet for easy in-and-out from oven and 
bake for 25-30 minutes or until crust is nicely browned.  
*(If you don't have ovenproof bowls, place chicken mixture in a deep-dish
pie plate or a 1-qt. casserole dish.  Roll out biscuit dough into a 9" circle
and bake as directed).

The pot pie sounds yummy. I bet my kiddos would love it. Will be going on my menu plan for next week.

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
