Thanksgiving Gift to My Readers

Dear Readers,

Thank you for encouraging me to keep writing this blog. Here is a little gift for you and your family from mine. The day after Thanksgiving, when you want to spice up those leftovers, here's a recipe for you. It comes from the makers of Campbell's soup. (I'm a Campbell's soup kind of girl.) Have a wonderful holiday!

Love, Loren

Turkey Pot Pie

  • 2 refrigerated pie crusts

  • 2 cans of condensed cream of chicken Campbell's soup

  • 2 cups of leftover veggies- (your choice, carrots, peas, string beans work well)

  • 1/2 cup of potato or sweet potato (optional)
    1/4 cup of milk

  • about 1 1/12 cup of chopped turkey breast

  • 1/3 cup of flour - to thicken mixture (if necessary)


  • brown bottom pie crust in un-greased pie pan for 12 minutes at 450 degrees

  • let crust cool for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix soup, milk, vegetables, turkey and flour in a large bowl.

  • pour mixture into pie crust bottom.

  • add pie crust top layer and make three slices in top. (for air release)

  • Return pie to oven and cook for 30 minutes at 425 degrees, or until golden brown and bubbly.

    Let the pie cool for about 15 minutes.

    Serves about 4-5 people.

That turkey pie looks delicious. Is it one of Sarah's? lol I'll bet not.

I agree with Dave. I'm not sure who Sarah is, but I can tell you this dish is made by my human mother, Alpha Dog. If you mean Sarah Lee who lives on box covers, I think that human got eaten by a wolf- NOT ME!...and I would not touch that pie, PETA, in case you're wondering. I love those cute little turkeys. I lick them until they're beaks are missing.

What do you do with the carcass after you make the soup? I think I would like that part the best. But the pie looks good too.

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
