As if regular days weren’t hectic enough, the holidays have to come in and add their two cents. Running around, trying to find time to conquer the ‘To Do’ list, and retain some sanity during this time of year is a tough feat. But if our parents and grandparents did it, that means we can too, right?!

For us, tonight’s dinner is just like Gramma used to make – Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pie.

Pot Pies have always been one of my favorite meals. It has all of my favorite ingredients baked together: the golden flaky crust, a healthy serving of veggies, and meat with a gravy like sauce I just can’t get enough of! Pot Pie is definitely my top choice for a busy night wholesome family meal. After all, who doesn’t love a meal where the hard work is done for you? That’s why I love Marie Callender’s. The prep work is done, I can just wrap the pot pie crust edges in aluminium foil, bake, and serve.
