Cheater Pot Pie
After Thanksgiving I wanted something quick and easy to make with the leftover turkey. This recipe was the winner. I used about 1 cup of turkey as opposed to chicken and instead of frozen vegetables, I used can green beans (since I had no peas) creamed corn (since we didn't have regular corn) baby carrots and mushrooms. I opted to cook everything in the sauce pan and added 1 can of creamed chicken (since I used a can of creamed corn) as well as milk to get the desired consistancy. For the pie portion of this recipe, I rolled out a defrosted frozen pie crust (A leftover, since its mate was used in a pie the night before), cut shapes with cookie cutters and baked in the oven per package directions to make pie crust cookies to serve on top of the pot pie. Definitly a cheater pot pie. I must say. I enjoyed the slight sweetness the creamed corn added.

Carrot Cake III
Only change I made to this recipe was to substitute 2 cups of white sugar for 1 cup white 1 cup brown. Since I didn't want a cake, I made 24 cupcakes and must say they are delicious. *For the icing I only needed 2 cups of confectioners sugar.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops
Made this recipe with the suggestions (marinated in soysauce/apple juice mix and baked on 350 for 25 min) of others and was pleasantly surprised. Certainly an ideal fall meal.
