In honor of Thanksgiving today, I thought I would share with you a yummy fall recipe. This would be great with your left over sweet potatoes and turkey (substitute in place of the chicken). It is from my all time favorite recipe magazine, Cuisine at Home. Happy Turkey Day everyone!
1 pkg. frozed puff pastry thawed (2 sheets, 17.3 oz)
3 1/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth, divided
2 cups peeled, diced sweet potatoe
1 1/2 cups peeled, diced russet potato
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced celry
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
3 cups dived rotisserie chicken
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and diecd
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
For the crust, cut pastry sheets into 1" wide strips. On a parchment-lined baking sheet,weave strips into a lattice pattern; freeze while preparing filling.
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly coat a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
For the filling, heat 2 1/2 cups broth, sweet and russet potatoes, onion, celery, and garlic in a large skillet over a medium-high; cook until vegetables are xlightly soft, about 8 minutes.
Whisk together remaining 2/4 cup broth, cream, flour, curry powder, and cinnamon. Pour slurry into vegetable mixture; cook and tir until thick and bubble. Add chicken, apple, peas, cilantro, and ilme juice; season with sale and pepper. Pour filling into prepared baking dish.
Bake filling until bubbly and crust until golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Place crust on top of pie before serving.
* Note: I didn't read the last step carefully enough, and placed my crust frozen on top of the filling to cook. It browned up and cooked alright, but for a crispier crust, I would suggest cooking the two separately.
I had so much fun at Mom's Best holiday party. I got to catch up with some great blogging friends and make some new ones. We got to review some awesome products, eat a yummy meal, and take part in an auction to help spread awareness for the Utah County Children's Justice Center. That auctioneer was one fast talker.
I found this fabric down in LA for $2.50 a pound. It was love at first sight when I saw it from across the room. It is a slightly thicker knit that has a great feel and drape. I knew this was the kind of dress I wanted to make instantly. I used basically the same pattern I created for the lace overlay on this dress, but I tweaked the sleeves and neckline a bit. I created a few small pleats along the neckline to give it a little character, and I like the way they make the dress hang in front. I'm really loving loose flowy clothing right now. This dress can be easily cinched in with a belt, and dressed up with a blazer.
Make sure to stop by tomorrow for an amazing giveaway from Parazul. You won't want to miss it! I have been using this bag as my diaper bag and I am in love. It has tons of compartments inside and I can fit everything I could possible imagine in it. And I love that it doesn't look like a diaper bag, so I can bring it with me when I am running errands alone without looking like I am toting around an entire changing table sans kids.
(yeah...all those times I run errands without my kids....)
