Chicken Pot Pie

What do you do with leftovers?

The eternal question of the home cook, at least one who can't stand to toss food or perpetually over estimates how much her family will eat.

I just made this up today, and it turned out delicious.

I took the leftovers from our roast chicken dinner, made in the crockpot so it had a lot of nice gravy. Warmed up the gravy, stripped the carcass and tossed the chicken into the gravy with a handful of mixed vegetables. After that I put it into a casserole dish and topped with puff pastry, baked for 20 minutes at 400 degrees and voila!

Served with a nice salad and some leftover squash, it made for a delicious supper that wasn't a repeat.

(Almost) a new year, and new ideas.

Pondering things, like maybe blogging a little more seriously (but then I usually do, don't I?) so also pondering an update to this and a name change.

I'm not just a knitter, but I am a total Flibbertigibbet, so I'm updating to Flibbertigibbet Gal. I'll have to figure out some renovating of this site and spruce it up to look better.

But what brought this on? Ideas. I like to cook, and knit, and do other crafts, so I may as well spread the love around.

We'll see how well this goes.
