An annual tradition at Casa de Harper is the making of the post-Thanksgiving pot pie. It’s how I use up the last of the leftovers. It also affords the opportunity for one of my favorite musical puns; “Chicken Pot Pie and I don’t care”. It helps if you hum the tune of “Jimmy Crack Corn” in your head. And that will now be today’s ear worm. You’re welcome.
The first step in the making the pot pie is cutting up the leftover turkey, This year there is also leftover chicken so I guess it will technically be poultry pot pie (….and I don’t care.) Usually Harper provides little more than laissez faire supervision of my efforts in the kitchen but for some reason this morning she seems particularly eager to help. It’s touching, her desire to help others. It must be the Christmas spirit. I’m sure she’ll be just as interested in helping with the dishes.
