A couple of things I think about and frequently discuss with the women in my life are what’s for dinner, what we should all wear, and how the weather is. Each one is related to the next: we’re hungry and enjoy food. We want to dress well for whatever meal we might be enjoying together. The weather can affect how we feel, what we do for ourselves and others all day, the food we crave, and how we dress—a simple little storm of a trifecta.
For comfort, one of the requested meals is Chicken Pot Pie. Chicken Pot Pie swoops into the rescue when someone we love travels a long distance to come home or feels like they need a food hug.
With summer weather in flux and fall around the corner, I’m sure I’ll be asked to serve this up. The last time I made it, I got chatting in the kitchen and forgot to add the peas. The peas on the side were just fine.
