My oh my what a wonderfully busy Sunday! Look what we finished up around the homestead 🙂
New bedroom curtains
New living room wall sconces/decorations
New dining room wall sconces
Also made the halloween goodies… but instead of a cake or cupcakes I turned them into cookies!! If you’ve never made cookies out of cake mix you should so try it, they are fluffy and totally Yummm 🙂
Anddddd since we finally cleaned out the third bedroom (yea, I know) I decided to make it into my workout room! Today I did an Exercise TV video, with my main man Kendall Hogan (Bootcamp Calorie Burn)…. it’s a mix of various cardio moves with some strength built in and it felt great!
My mom also stopped over and brought us a giant pumpkin too… love that woman 🙂
After a quick shower it was time to start on the….
Buffalo Chicken Pot Pie!
This was a Rachel Ray recipe that my homegirl Jenna tried a few weeks back and I just knew that it HAD to be made in this household (The Man is also slightly obsessed with buffalo chicken, and by slightly I mean totally and completely 😉 )
Get the veggies ready
Chop up and saute the chicken in some EVOO (I only used 1 giant chicken breast)
Take chicken out of pan, saute veggies in some EVOO in same pan.
Make buffalo sauce – start with a butter/flour mixture (I cut it down to 3 tblsp ratio) then add chicken stock (cut down to 2 cups) and hot sauce whisking until thickened.
Then combine the veggies, chicken and sauce into saucepan and set aside while you make topping.
Make corn muffins according to directions, then stir in blue cheese.
Add chicken/veggie mixture into baking dish.
Spoon corn bread topping to cover
Bake in 375F oven for 25 minutes. NOTE: I would highly recommend putting it on top shelf in oven and placing a baking pan on lower shelf to catch overflow, bc some of the sauce had a mind of it’s own and went currrazzzzy 😉
Holy chicken cow celery carrot whatever you want to call it!!!
I HAVE GONE TO HEAVEN.
Then seconds, for both 😉
This recipe is freaking amazing…. I know I say this alot peeps, but omg I have never had anything like this before and I don’t know how I have lived my life without it for so long… seriously 😛
The sweetness of the corn bread topping combined with the spicy creaminess of the filling was so freakin’ fantastic. My tastebuds are in their glory and lovin’ me right now. Holy chicken pot pie.
Well, I have nothing more to say other than if you get the chance to try this please do!
I’m off to lounge on the couch & relax with The Man… it’s been a busy day and I’m pooped 🙂 Time for some football, google reader and more Chard (who said that?)
Have a lovely rest of the weekend bloggies!! 🙂
