    I ate a chicken pot pie

    I ate a chicken pot pie. It was a cheap store-brand. It wasn't very good. The paper/plastic "pan" it was in is probably giving me cancer.

    My two dogs stared at me as if I were eating the best thing ever, hoping for scraps.

    Maybe next time I'll give them the pot pie and eat the expensive dog food myself.

    Been a long time since those cheap ones were any good. When they had metal pans, I think they cooked better. When I was kid they used to be filled to the brim. Now there's like a tablespoon of stuff in them. It's been that way for a long long time.

    Go the Giant Eagle down there. They have incredible pot pies in the cafeteria section, hot and ready to eat or cold and ready to take home. They are awesome.

    It doesn't help that they're at 8 bazillion degrees F. I believe a bratwurst would have been a healthier choice.

    There is no Giant Eagle in Louisville. Google tells me the closest ones are in Ohio.

    I was lazy and nearly out of food. I would have to ride to the grocery store and get something else, so I ate what I had.

    If I *had* bratwurst, I'd have to fire up the grill, and I'm naked. The neighbors don't like that much.

    Like this but with a paper pan.

    The Marie Callender pot pies are the best commercial product I've had. Let me know if there are any better that are available nationally.

    And I second the Marie Callendar endorsement.

    Oh, I'm smart enough to give it time to cool. I like my taste buds to remain functional, at least after eating it.

    My wife serves pot pie ala mode with a scoop of cottage cheese on top. Helps cool it down and tastes pretty good too.

    They are even better in the restaurant. I used to work at one (Pismo Beach, CA).

    Something about store bought pot pies... they are all filled with a bunch of yellow glop (what is that stuff????), a couple of soggy carrots and hard peas and something that looks like chicken... may or may not be. The best part is unfortunately the crust, the part one should not eat! I won't even mention the sodium and calorie count. Not even good for the dogs.

    I just got finished eating some fresh, just made futomaki (sushi) with fresh japanese pickles... much better for you!

    When I get a hankering for a pot pie, Marie Callender is my go-to-gal.
    Dangit, I almost only post in Foo, so my post count is abysmal.

    I'm old enough to remember the pre-Horton Plaza days when a strip club wasn't a high end restaurant.

    Chicken and Beef Pot Pies are what my brother and I got when Mom was too wiped out to cook dinner...which was rare so they were kind of a treat. I got the round chicken and my older brother got the larger, rectangular beef pie. Stouffers as I recall.

    See, this is what's great about America: Only here can you sit around naked and eat a chicken pot pie. BTW, were you sitting in a bean-bag chair whilst dining?

    ...and by the by, where was your heavily-armed girlfriend while all of this was transpiring? Did she have any input on the situation?

    Wow - are those still around? I remember there was one in Fresno when I was growing up...
    There's nothing for you to see here...just move along, now...
