There’s really nothing better then some comfort food when it’s snowy and chilly outside .  James had said a while back that he wanted to make a pot pie and tonight seemed like the perfect time to make it!

My sister and I actually made this recipe for Thanksgiving, as a vegan option. It was de-veganized tonight, though and we used some different veggies.

Changes made:buttermilk

  • Canola oil based butter used instead of Earth Balance
  • Cultured buttermilk used instead of soy milk (and we had no regular milk)
  • Veggies used: Broccoli, carrots, celery, onion, corn
  • Whole Wheat Flour used

We made this in the best pan ever because it can go from stove top to oven which equals less clean up which is always a good thing:


The final product:

My piece:


Spinach salad with tomatoes, cucumber, chickpeas and balsamic vinegar:


With the rest of the iced coffee drink James handed me the second I walked in the door from work..that’s what I call service.


I ended up giving about half of my crust to James. I was in it for the filling. I really cannot even express how delicious and satisfying this is. It has a rich and buttery taste (I guess from the cultured buttermilk?), with the corn and peas giving it some sweetness.

James quickly informed me that the leftovers  would be gone by the time I get home from work tomorrow. Good to know.

Now we’re watching The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Okay James is watching it…I glance up occasionally.

I did a workout on the elliptical before going to work today. I can’t decide whether I want to try to run tomorrow or give my knee another day of rest.  It felt better today but still hurt occasionally, especially going up and down stairs. I’m inclined to want to just ellipticize one more day. I would much rather skip running one more day then risk being out for the count for weeks and not be able to run my half marathon in March!! We’ll see what happens…

How cautious are you when you feel pain? Does it significantly alter your workout or do you “run through the pain” ?

  1. Well, I just ran a half marathon on shin splints, so that answers your question for me.. 🙂

    The veggie pot pie looks GOOD!

  2. wow – pot pie looks awesome. Love the pan – what brand is it and where did you get? – that would be a great addition to my kitchen 🙂

  3. The veggie pot pie was so good when we made it! I’ve thought about making it again, but since it’s just me leftovers take me forever to get through, and I feel silly having ppl over to my studio to eat with me.
    I think pain is a signal that something is wrong, and your body is telling you to stop! Being sore from a workout is one thing, but pain is another!
    I don’t think I’m going to be making it up to NC for spring break 😦 Mom is working all week so wouldn’t be able to travel to Raleigh, and the plane tickets prices/sucky economy combo doesn’t help. But hopefully I will get up there soon!!!! My semester ends in April and then I think I have a little break before summer session starts.

  4. I love pot pie!!

    I am a wimp, I dont’ workout through pain.

  5. WOW, this looks so yummy. I love one pot meals- less clean up is always a positive. I never workout through bad pain- I choose other activities that don’t use whatever is hurting!

  6. looks delicious 😀
