Happy Friday, friends! ♥


I wish that anyplace this submit reveals you immediately that you’re well, staying very warm, and feeling in a position to comfy in for a winter weekend ahead.  I’m already counting down the hours till I can pack away my pc and name it a “week” and jump weekending.  Because it appears like here's going to be a nice and primary one.

Tonight is a taco date evening time “in” with my favourite guy, the place we’re already planning to make spherical NULL of these mezcal margs I shared with you yesterday.  Then Saturday morning is brunch with girlfriends, adopted via way of a Sunday morning filled with carols and Advent tales at church.  But different than that, I am making an attempt very difficult to maintain the relaxation of the weekend gloriously unscheduled, and open for impromptu naps, espresso dates, cookie bake-a-thons, or no matter sounds merry and bright.  Free weekends don’t appear to occur very typically on this busy vacation season.  But I at all times love and desire to shield them whilst they do.  So in lieu of creating plenty of additional plans, I’m simply going to see the place the winter wind blows….which very properly may be to my sofa with a nice e-book and a mushy blanket and a snuggly pup.  Mmmm, winter.

That said, I do understand one factor I’ll be doing this weekend for sure: consuming the leftovers of this ode to pot pie filling.

Also identified as Chicken Pot Pie Soup.

The notion for this primary soup recipe of course got here from its namesake.  Or really, the filling of its namesake.  In an attempt to chop down on additional carbs, I decided to nix any kind of pie crust or biscuit topping…

…although when you really experience like serving it with some biscuits, you may whip up a batch of my 3-Ingredient Coconut Oil Biscuits in simply minutes.  Or even roll out a pie crust and cut it into cracker-shapes (or any shape) to ideal your soup.

Or…you may move the super-easy route, and simply ideal the soup with a number of little oyster crackers, that is exactly what I did.  (They took me a complete 10 seconds to pull out of the pantry!)

But the filling — err, soup — is really the star of the social gathering here.

It’s exceptionally wealthy and creamy (even with utilizing simply milk rather of heavy cream).  It’s chocked filled with tender hen and contemporary vegetables (that you’re welcome to customize with whichever veggies you prefer).  It’s primary to make (and in a position to move in about 30 minutes).  And additional than anything, it tastes simply identical to the delicious pot pie that impressed it.

Definitely the proper remedy meals for this time of year, and for lazy weekends akin to this one.

Hope that it warms you up too.  Enjoy!
