Turkey Pot Pie


This is one of the many things I did with all the left over turkey from Christmas. I love this pie. I made it with whole wheat pie crust the filling was something that I whipped up. I love cooking on the fly.. Plus I am pretty good at imitation cooking, I can eat something and usually reproduce it myself, one exception would be Indian food. I am poorly at curry.

The Software
