If you are reading this, I am sorry. :oops:
Know that I love you. http://www.wuvie.net/heart.gif
But I just tried to eat a chicken pot pie after
all these years, and all the horrendous memories
of eating so many disgusting pot pies just makes me
sick, and I am giving it to the dogs to finish.
I know you did your best with what we had,
but strap me to an ant hill before you ever make
me eat another chicken pot pie.
I even tried the Marie Callendar brand, but after two
bites, the memories all came back and it hit me.
Does ANYONE know of a pot pie worth eating?
A pot pie is a pot pie
is a pot pie...
I love you, Mom!

And I have to be forced,to me they're just so FAKE.
I like all the ingredients separately - pie crust,mmmmm full of pecans and Karo filling please.
Peas and carrots - I like with fish and chips ( and for those of you reading the Pilates thread - pecan pie or fish and chips no more :( )
and chicken - I love chicken - especially freshly prepared
but and that's a huge but
It's just scary when you put them all together in one of those little aluminum tins.....

Chicken Pot Pie. Love it. Might go pick one up later. Thanks for reminding me. ;)

I like 'em (no chicken, please, and it HAS to be homemade--none of that frozen *&^#)...comfort foods are some of my best friends.
Ant hill? :shock:

I make homemade turkey pot pie after Thanksgiving. My family loves them, but it may be because we only eat them once a year.
Plus I am a good cook :)

My mom was (and is) the worst cook ever. Somewhere there are cave drawings of her ancestors burning the heck out of mastadon shanks. Compared to whatever might await me at dinner, a frozen pot pie was a pretty tame fate.
Now that I am more or less adult, the charm has worn off a bit. But I still love homemade ones. And homemade shepards pie...*drool*
Hmmm....now I feel hungry. ;)

I confess, I kind of like chicken pot pies, and Marie Callendar's are the best processed ones, but HOME MADE . . . now those are YUMMY!!!!
For me, the "hard to choke down food" is a tie between tuna fish salad with Ranch Style Beans and a cooked-'til-shoe-leather steak <chocking and gagging at the thought of it>
EVERY Sunday for the first 20 years of my life we had Tuna salad sandwiches with Ranch Style beans. Every other Thursday we had steak. I don't know what cut it was, but that sucker was either lower quality meat or Mom and Dad cooked the hell outta that piece of flesh!!!!!!!! There was not a micromillimeter of moisture left in it!!! I remember chewing and chewing and chewing and chewing and chewing! It never would go down my throat!!!! and it was all gray and icky BLECH!!! :puke:
(sorry for the descriptors with the graphic, ya'll! ;) )
IF I eat steak I want it to be ULTRA thin and medium, or reallllllly thick and medium rare!!!!! I get a craving for steak (not just plain ol' beef, but STEAK) once or twice a year, MAX!!! and when people talk about wanting a steak, I generally cringe.
But Chicken pot pies (to get back to the original topic) are pretty good (especially compared with the two meals I just described!)

I love 'em, but only if we're talking the homemade variety...
March 18th, 2003, 05:26 PM
I used to love them until I got pregnant. One evening I made some (homemade, the best kind IMO), sat down to eat it and for some reason known only to God, I couldn't stand the smell of it and tossed my cookies right there. :puke: After that, I can't stand to smell one ever again.
I'm the same with Gain detergent, flea collars, and Right Guard deoderant. :no

I love 'em! I love anything as long as it has a golden, flaky crust! Well, almost anything :rolleyes:

I really like the Marie Callender ones, but they've got a HUGE number of Weight Watchers points so I don't indulge too often. Bob Evans restaurant makes a tasty one, and I LOVE my own homemade chicken pot pie, but I haven't made it for years because I am lazy and hate all the chicken de-boning and veggie chopping and crust rolling.
The little frozen Banquet pies I like well enough, but it always ticks me off that there's only one pea in the whole blessed thing, when the picture on the box shows it chock-full. :x

I like them all right. But then, I never had any childhood experiences of being forced to eat them. Actually, I don't think my mom ever made them. One thing I remember that we used to have that I really didn't like was ham hocks and beans. The ham part was okay, but I've never liked beans other than green beans, and I especially didn't like the ones in ham hocks and beans. But now it's been probably 7 or 8 years since I've had that.

The only pot pie i've ever been able to stomach(alas, bad childhood memories of those tiny tin ones) ARe the one at my job. I work at Marie Callenders, the ones we make at work, are nothing like what is sold in the grocery stores. I hate frozen pot pies. Ick, nasty!

i agree that i'm not fond of turkey or chicken potpies, but i do like beef ones.

I love all pot pies, especially homeade ones. I have a really good recipe for a veggie pot pie that I love:
In the food processor, Shred desired amount of:
add in enough stock and top with bisquick crust and butter. Yum

I like them, but I think the commercial ones are a poor food value both nutritionally and financially. I only buy them on the 33 cent sales and the even more infrequent 25 cent sales. Then only 10 at the most.
My family, however, loves them, so, occasionally, I will make a big sheet cake pan version. But I think it is a rather time consuming dish to prepare.
I think that during my last pregnancy( #4) I had a little thing for them for a while, but it was nothing like the craving for sardines and grapefruit that I had during pregnancy number 3 (6-7 grapefruit a day and 3-5 cans of sardines) that lasted the entire time.

I don't like the frozen ones eeeewwwwww.
March 19th, 2003, 09:21 AM
I like them... the homemade ones, that is. Maybe that's because I rarely have them, though! Unfortunately, because of some health problems I have, I can't eat them all that often. :(

I'm not sure how I feel about pot pies...for the most part, I shy away from anything construed as "stew-like", and I'm sooooo fussy about my meat (there cannot be ONE little tiny ounce of fat or gristle on it or I won't eat it!!!!) and pot pies tend to be sneaky and have nasty, fatty meat in them...but now I'm thinking about a vegetarian pot pie, and that sounds pretty darn good...hmmm....
