We are halfway through the challenge to write and post 31 consecutive days!
Most of my posts have been written in the evening after I return from work. Tonight, I decided to make chicken pot pies for dinner. This seemed like a good idea at the time. I am planning to the 21 Day Sugar Detox in November so I’ve been trying out some of the recipes.
This one for chicken pot pies took more time than I planned for. Recipes take about double of the stated time in the cookbook the first time I make them and I didn’t account for that. And I had missed that the pot pies would need to cool before digging in. So, instead of writing a post dedicated to thank-you notes tonight, I was making chicken pot pies!
If you are interested in trying out this recipe it’s in The 21-Day Sugar Detox Cookbook: Over 100 Recipes for Any Program Level (Amazon affiliate link). I was VERY hungry by the time it was cool enough to eat.
Was the chicken pot pie worth it?
The dish takes over 2 hours with prep, cooking, and consuming. Given the limited amount of time I had to write tonight, perhaps a long recipe was not in my best interest. It was worth it as I still have things to be grateful for tonight:
- My mom told me how to store the leftovers
- I had food to eat
- I was still able to get a blog post written!
- I learned a new recipe
- It was fun to write about food!
- There is a lesson to be learned about time management
Do recipes ever take you longer than expected? Did you find a way to still be grateful?
