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.

Oh yeah, and this recipe was my WIAW contribution for the day. The rest of my meals and snacks didn’t exactly get photographed, but you got the best one and that’s all that matters, right?
