I love getting cozy this time of year. The weather outside gets really cold and you can finally see the snow on the nearby mountains.
It rained for a while this weekend and really set the mood for the holiday season. We got cozy in our warm fleece, started a fire in the fireplace and made a little caramel hot chocolate to warm up.
Our Busy Day
We were making gift packages and labels for an upcoming Christmas party. It was a really fun evening getting the gifts ready.
But, we still had not eaten dinner and I wanted a simple, comforting meal for everyone. Thankfully, I had stocked up on Marie Callender’s pot pies earlier in the week.
This time of year, I love dinner shortcuts because with holiday parties, winter programs and lots of shopping and wrapping, I find I can use a little help in the dinner preparation.
I was shopping at Walmart the other day and found the Marie Callender’s Family Pot Pie Meal as I wandered down the frozen aisle section.
I decided to pick up a Chicken Pot Pie because, honestly, dinner does not get much easier than this. Notice that I did not include my Christmas gifts in this shot because I did not want to spoil any gift-giving surprises, but I found some fun gifts there too.
I also found these tasty Mini Chiabatta rolls to go with my dinner.
TIMESAVING TIP: Keep a few dinners in the freezer so you will have them on hand during those busy days.
A Cozy Meal with Marie Callender’s Pot Pies #PotPiePlease
We were able to wrap several gifts, while this was baking in the oven. It was nice to feel rushed and actually enjoy wrapping and tagging the gifts while still serving a warm meal to my family.
Her pot pies have been favorites in our home for years. Marie Callender’s tastes like homemade and are made with all white-meat chicken, healthy vegetables, and creamy gravy, all in a golden, perfectly flaky crust that’s made from scratch. I know my family loves them.
Then, once the wrapping is done, we can cozy up with warm blankets and slippers and enjoy our after dinner time together with a holiday movie. Christmas Story is our favorite. We love our cozy time together that happens this time of year.
