{chicken pot pie}

I’ve been on a comfort food kick lately.  I blame it on the weather.  Speaking of weather…..I’ve got the best recipe for a cold rainy weeknight.  Like tonight!

Chicken pot pie is like a big ol bowl of chicken soup wrapped in a hug.  A crusty dough hug that is.

I was telling my homegirl Sarah P that I was searching for THE very best pot pie recipe.  She said Pioneer Women.  Duh, what was I thinking.  P Dubb always has the ultimate comfort food recipes.  A little butta neva hurt anyone, right?


I mean, just look at it!

Do yourself (and your family) a favor.  Stop at the grocery store on your way home and scoop up these ingredients.

Speaking of pie.  I came across this Pie + Wine Paring chart.  This information will be crucial over weekend.

One of my girlfriends, Sara, gave me a heads up – Prosecco pairs beautifully with apple pie.

Thanks for the snap shot Sara 🙂

{dinner + a movie}

Phewww – made it through Monday. (barely)  Today is a new day!  Not sure I’m ready for daylight savings this weekend.  The extra hour of sleep sounds amazing.  The time change sure does take some time to get used too though.

Monday date night // Bailey + I decided to plan our Monday date at home this week.  I think she could see the exhaustion in my eyes…lol.  Well, and since my Mom & Bay snuck off to see Jem and the Holograms without me over the weekend, which was our original plan.  Devastated.

I have always wanted to do a movie themed dinner.  Lady and The Tramp was our movie selection for the night.  We shopped for ingredients to make spaghetti and meatballs (which I’ve never made before).  Threw on our aprons and got our hands dirty.  Lady and the Tramp played while we enjoyed our dinner.  Bailey lit the candle and said it felt like a real dinner date (umm, how would she know what a real date feels like??).  We may have even tried the famous spaghetti noodle kiss:)  If you are looking for a new meatball recipe, I highly recommend The Pioneer Women’s Spaghetti & Meatballs recipe.  It took a little time, but the end results were worth it.  We had kale caesar salad on the side.  Yummm.

{the pioneer women + pumpkin spice everything}

Last month The Pioneer Women‘s new cookware collection launched at Walmart’s all across the land.  Has anyone headed to Wally World to check it out yet?  It’s divine.  I know it’s asking a lot, but I promise it’s worth the trip.  And think of the people-watching you will get to see?!?!  Double whammy!

Some stores have the collection spread throughout the departments.  My local store has a beautiful display with all the items in one place.  Batter bowls, pitchers, polka dots, turquoise, dishes, cast iron all adorned with her signature butterfly logo.  Take a peek at the whole collection here.  I stood in the isle staring, unsure which piece had to go home with me first.
