Okay, I will admit it, I hate throwing away food. Being wasteful is something that bothers me quite a bit and I try making sure that everything we make is used up. This means that I make quite a bit of leftovers to make sure we have plenty of variety for both lunch and dinner. During the holiday time, I even freeze extra turkey so I can reuse it later in various dishes for us and Reya (see our turkey dog biscuit recipe). Recently, however, I couldn’t decide what to make with the extra turkey we had in the freezer but I knew I had to use it soon since it was already thawed. While thinking of different things I could do, I remembered that some of my friends made pot pies. This seemed like the perfect way to use up our leftover turkey and some of the frozen vegetables in our freezer.
After a bit of trial and error, I finally came up with the perfect pot pie recipe. Not only was delicious, but filled with lots of yummy vegetables. How can you not like a tasty, warm, comfort food with this horrible cold temperatures! Best of all, it is super easy to make, allowing you to sit back and relax most of the week as your family enjoys a yummy turkey pot pie!
