This sort of end of the year rush time is just crazy, right?  Day to day life is always busy, but this time of year there are so many additional things added onto the load.  Even when they are fun things like social events, holiday baking, gifting, sending cards, it can all combine to be quite overwhelming.  My best advice – don’t let that happen.  Or even if it does, make sure to carve out some quiet time to spend with your loved ones.  Unplug.  Unwind.  Just be together.  Let all of the hectic holiday buzz slip away and relax, at least for a few hours.  And while you are at it, have a big bowl of comfort food.

For me, this chicken pot pie instantly evokes that sort of homemade-with-love feeling that the best comfort foods bring (even if I am the one who made it).  The first time I ever tried this was with a group of girls who I love dearly, and for that reason it will always hold a special place in my heart…and my stomach.   I recently made the dish again for my family and we agreed it was that perfect sort of Sunday dinner food.  I hope your family enjoys it as much as we do!
