It’s late, so forgive any typos and annoying discussion of my favorite tv shows. I find it so unwinding after I put the boys to bed to plop down on the couch, kick my feet up and indulge in some good reality tv from time to time. American Idol was ready and waiting for me on my tivo. I really have been rooting for Brooke White, especially since she is an AZ girl, but have to say she’s probably about done. I really think it’s going to come down to the 2 Davids’. Both really great. I can see David Cook doing more though. Did you hear he is dating Lacy from So You Think You Can Dance from last season? Guess they met on “Idol Gives Back.” Can’t wait for SYTYCD season 3 and Grey’s Anatomy is coming back Thursday, Yay! And how cute does Maid of Honor look with Patrick Dempsey coming out in a few weeks?
Now, onto the good stuff. Those that are on diets, pleas look away, this could be way too tempting…..
This is a great alternative to the traditional chicken pot pie. I serve it in a bowl with light, flaky, and buttery puff pastry croutons. Easy, fattening, and totally comforting. I had to laugh when my husband asked me if this dinner was healthy. I thought the cream base would have been a dead give away! Like I’ve said before, moderation and some good self control! Don’t eat 2 big bowls at one sitting and you’ll be fine!
2 large carrots, peeled and sliced
2 stalks of celery, chopped
1 medium white onion finely diced
2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 stick butter (I know, I hear the groans)
½ Cup flour
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 cans chicken broth
1 Cup half and half (there go the groans again)
½ Cup low fat sour cream (better?)
1 Cup petite peas, frozen is fine
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of garlic salt, Lawry’s
1 egg mixed with 1 Tbsp water
¼ teaspoon Cajun seasoning
Thanks so much to Steph from Stephanie’s Kitchen and Lori from Recipe Girl for thinking of me for the “Blogging With Purpose Award.” These two ladies have blogs that I visit daily and just love! Thanks ladies for your nice comments.
I love her blog and can hardly believe she’s still in high school! I remember browsing through her blog one day and had to re-read her profile, I could hardly believe it. What a talented girl, I’m a huge fan of her creative recipes.

Deborah is the ultimate cookbook recipe tester, I love checking in to see what she’s going to test next. She did a whole week of Rachel Ray’s recipes that all looked great. She takes great pics too!
Patsyk has beautiful pictures and recipes that make your mouth water! Another daily visit for me!
Heather, another fellow hygienist, just started her own cooking blog and is doing great. Her recipes are tried and true and I’ve been enjoying seeing what she’s cooking.
I love reading this group of sister’s favorite recipes. They always post real life recipes that sound so good!
