National Pot Pie Day is September 23rd, and I couldn’t think of a better reason to celebrate. To celebrate the official beginning of fall, to highlight one of my all-time favorite comfort foods, and to just plain celebrate the final months leading up to the inevitable cold Wisconsin winter–when you can be sure I’ll be thinking about hibernating with said favorite comfort foods.
Pick ‘n Save has amazing pot pies available in their deli–both chicken and beef. So, since I didn’t have to cook the pot pies from scratch, I decided to whip up this fabulous Berry Spinach Salad which is a perfect pairing of healthy ingredients to serve as a side to any meal.
Even more perfect to serve as a side with a slice of pot pie. Because, while I could probably nearly inhale an entire pot pie all by myself–in one sitting, no less–I probably shouldn’t. So, instead I indulged in a big portion of Berry Spinach Salad and a nice slice of the best ever comfort food.
My favorite kind of pot pie has always been Chicken Pot Pie. It is just so flavorful.
And we all know that when the temperatures start to dip down, comfort food is where it’s at. There is just something about a pot pie that is soothing to the soul. Calming. Hmm…not sure why that is, but it would be interesting to investigate.
To help celebrate National Pot Pie Day on September 23, participate in Pick ’n Save’s Pot Pie Showdown. From Wednesday, September 23 through Saturday, September 26, you can taste Pick ’n Save’s chicken and beef pot pies in Milwaukee-area stores and cast your vote for a chance to win prizes. Make sure to visit Pick ’n Save’s Facebook page to find out Milwaukee’s favorite pot pie in the next few weeks.
Pick ‘n Save’s Pot Pies are made daily in the Roundy’s Commissary in Kenosha–hand crimped and made fresh. Just taking a fork and breaking into that flaky crust, and then scooping out that first bite is worth it. And since Roundy’s has already gone through all the trouble of making these delicious pot pies, all that is left to do is to heat them up, eat them and enjoy! Deliciousness!
Like I said–fresh ingredients and comfort food. Well, you can’t get better than that. And while we get into the mood for fall…
And all the gorgeousness it has to offer…
You’d better believe some easy peasy weeknight dinners are something that we want to go right along with it. Because the fall is busy. Heck, life is busy. And why not make things just a little bit easier?Print
