new car and new recipe

we drove down to warrensburg last night to meet up with my parents.  
my old car needs to be licensed and it has always been in my parent's names.
so as of last night, we are now proud owners of a 10 year old sunfire.
sa-weet. let's celebrate.

and since we were in town, mom made us dinner.
homemade chicken pot pie.
my favorite.
and here's the recipe:
it's a doozy, but if you ever have the time, i suggest it.

you'll need:
1/2 C chopped onion
1 large can veg-all - or mixed frozen veggies
(carrots, green beans, corn)
1/4 C chopped celery
3 cups cubed cooked chicken
6 Tbsp butter
1 tsp salt
1/2 C flour
3 C chicken broth
1 potato

boil chicken in water until cooked. cut into cubes. make two crust pie dough (double your normal recipe) and roll out. cook onion and celery in butter until tender. add flour and salt, cook for 2 mins. add broth all at once. cook and stir until thick and bubbly.  boil veggies and a cubed potato.  add chicken and veggies to broth.  pour into a pie crust.  top with the other pie crust. seal edges. 
bake at 350 for 35 to 40 mins.

Chicken Pot Pie

my mom always makes her pie dough from scratch, but i bet you could totally buy it and make this 10 times easier. 

good luck and enjoy!
