what i am eating #6

I love cooking and eating, and I especially love looking at pictures of food!  If you love food as much as I do, please add your food pictures/recipes/food related posts to the linky below.  All you have to do is link back to this blog post from your blog.  I look forward to seeing what everyone else is eating this week!

This past week has been quite the spectrum as far as weather goes.  It was hotter than anything at the beginning of Labor Day weekend, and then it started raining, then the cold came.  I am officially calling fall at our doorstep here in Maine.  What better way than to make a veggie pot pie!

Now, I don't really make pot pies.  Not because I don't love them, I do, but I just don't ever make them, especially from scratch.  I didn't follow a recipe for this, so no real recipe to share.  I chopped an onion and some garlic and started to saute in some olive oil.  I chopped up some of my purple carrots - which are quite the pretty vegetable; purple outside with orange inside and then a yellow center - and some red potatoes with the skins still on and added them to the pot.  I let them saute until they started to get tender.  Added seasonings and water - maybe 1/2 cup.  Then I added some flour to the mixture to thicken it a bit, and some more water to make a bit of a sauce.  Finally I dumped it all in a 9x13 pyrex and made a recipe of drop biscuits and plopped the batter all on the top of the veggie mixture.  I baked at 400 degrees until it looked like it was done :-)  It turned out delicious, and the kids ate it up!

So what are you eating this week?

  1. It looks great! What's funny is that I was planning on making chicken/veggie pot pie for dinner. I don't make it often, because I do everything from scratch and it takes a while, but I have some leftover chicken to use up. I guess it must be pot pie season ;-)

  2. I can't wait to make this! It looks so good and the weather is turning so I'm especially excited for veggie pot pies this season! Delicious!!!

  3. This looks like my kind of comfort food! It is still a bit warm here for pot pies but I will certainly be making them come cooler weather! :)

  4. Love your version, Heather -- it looks delicious. Turning a little cooler here as well.
