We were watching Throwdown with Bobby Flay ,who I heart, and he was challenging the Casserole Queens from Austin Txto a pot pie throw down. They were so cute and fun and their casserole looked so yummy that I got the recipe and tried it and seriously, it's the best pot pie I have ever eaten. So Good. We had it and salad last night for dinner. Good thing there was plenty because unexpectedly (to me) J had Emma and Nicole and Sophie over for a "polar bear club meeting", movie watching and dinner.
