WIAW #64: Chicken Pot Pie Pizza

Yesterday was just “one of those days”…

We all have them, but they’re still pretty sucky regardless. After just feeling “blah” when I woke up, substituting a sixth grade class that knew how to push my buttons all day, and dealing with some fun family drama while figuring out Christmas plans, I was more than ready for yesterday to be over. Not to mention those awesome pregnancy hormones that make me cry at the drop of a hat lately… Let’s just say it isn’t pretty when you add all of that up.

Thank goodness for patient and supportive husbands that give really good hugs. They can make any “bad day” at least turn better.

Oh, and comfort food does wonders too. It’s called comfort food for a reason, right? At the end of a long day like yesterday, all I wanted was easy comfort food for dinner.

First, it was pasta, then it was pizza, then it was chicken pot pie, and then it somehow turned into chicken pot pie pizza. Whaaaat? <—That’s how my husband responded. I told him not to ask any questions and to just eat. He followed my directions and was pleasantly surprised, as was I. Don’t ask how I got this idea of a recipe in my head, but it worked quite well if I do say so myself.

Comfort food? Check. Easy? Check. Delicious? CHECK.

    Girl, I definitely can relate to having “one of those days”…..When I have them, I’ve found works best for me is to really count my blessings. If I’m frustrated with work, I remind myself how many people are struggling to get by, and that I’m lucky to have a job. If I’m frustrated with my boyfriend, I remind myself how much he really does love me, and that I’m lucky to have him in my life at all. If I’m frustrated with life in general, I just try and reflect on how truly lucky I am for everything that I do have, and how many people don’t have the amazing blessings that I do….For me, this always puts things into perspective. I hope today is lots better for you!!!!!!

    This is a fabulous idea! I need to get more adventurous with my pizza creations. I’ve been in a rut with the usual eggplant, goat cheese and fresh basil, which don’t get me wrong, is delicious, it’s getting a little too familiar.

    I have “those days” sometimes too and I hate them :( I’m sorry you had such a blah day! I tend to get into sweatpants, curl up on the couch with a book and have a glass of wine. When I get like that, I just need to veg and have my alone time. I usually am fine by the next day.

    Hi Ashley. I’m sorry you had a less than stellar Tuesday – hopefully a fantastic end of the week will more than make up for it!
    BTW, your chicken pot pie pizza looks fabulous!

    Sorry to hear you had such a “blech” kind of day! I don’t know if you been experience this too (in addition to those fun emotional roller coasters your hormones are sending you on), but I’ve had a recurrence of nausea this week! Mostly the past two days, but it’s really no fun! Figured I’d ask since we’re on the same pregnancy track :)

    Hope today has been MUCH better than yesterday!

    Comfort food always males a “blah” day better. What an interesting idea – and easier than making an actual pi. I’ll have to try out your invention :) I just throw things together all the time – rice, random meat, random vegetables, and random sauce or seasoning and mix it all together. Usually it tastes pretty good too!
