a chicken pot pie (again) and new bunny...





Chicken Pot Pie (again)





New kitchen bunny on hot hob

OK, I made another chicken pot pie.  The original one I had made some time back looked good, but because the recipe called for everything to be basically cooked in the pie, we weren't happy with the veggies as they weren't cooked enough for us.  So-oo this time I cooked the potatoes, onions, carrots, and green beans first and then added everything into the pie at the end.... much better. Also better because I added a bit more seasoning as well as about 2oz of white wine. Much better!  (Even grandson had 2 pieces)

And this little wooden bunny was at Jo-ann's (fabric shop where I ran to get some yarn) for 60% off, so I couldn't resist. He makes a cute 'kitchen bunny', don't you think?




This is the crochet hat  made with the yarn I bought at Jo-ann's.  As you can see, it's way to big for me... but looks cute on bear. I will try to make a smaller version using less bulky yarn. However, it was my first attempt at crocheting a hat and the pattern was easy to follow.

Now I really have to run as I should be in Yoga class right now, but am playing hooky so that I can do some Easter shopping before the weekend.

Wait! Wait! one more pic!

  1. Mmm, it's lunch time here, I'll take a piece of that pot pie. :-)

    The bunny is adorable, of course, and I'm super-impressed with the crocheted hat. Cute dragon too.

    Have a lovely day.

  3. Love the bunny...I myself would have brought him home. Bear looks cute in his new hat...my bear has a crochet collar that my sister made years ago. I think it is fun to have little critters and creatures you can purchase with a children s book. I enjoyed your blog today...actually I enjoy them every day :)

    1. Bunny is sweet... and even sweeter at 60% off. And I too like the little critters that you can purchase with a children's book. I have 'the saggy baggy elephant' book and critter too. It was always one of my favorites.

  4. The chicken pie looks yummy. I have not had one of those for ages. Bunny adds a festive touch, as does bear in his new cap.

  5. You can never have (and eat) too many pot pies. They are such versatile dishes, tasty and all-inclusive.

    Your Easter bunny is very sweet and the bear’s hat fits him beautifully. Are you going to show me your hat too?

    1. If I get another hat finished, I will post a picture. However, if it's too large also, it will go to bear #2.

  6. Nice new Easter bunny. He's a bit wooden in his expression, though. :-)
