Thank you LP and PPT.

I combined soft butter and the left over dredging flour and used it to thickened the gravy.

Takeout calzone and a decent red. I'm suffering from an allergy attack. Benadryl makes me lazy.

Anyhoo, I have taken some ground pork out of the freezer and will make frikadeller. I'm still thinking about sides. Rødkål for sure. Rice or 'taters for DH.

So, I made classic Danish frikadeller, heated rødkål, heated rice for DH, made curried vegis, and LPBeier's Mushrooms Gratin, sort of - used very old cheddar, field and shitake mushrooms, no bread crumbs, and my vegan aioli for the garlic. I overbaked it, but it was still yum. Photo taken with my iPhone.

i had two fish tacos. homemade. gosh they were good. cut some corners on oil , etc. used extra thin corn tortillas. lettuce, little bit of onion and tomato ( just for the salad course) used less than 1/4 cup cheese between them. bitty bit sour cream and green taco sauce. so all and all brought it in at around 500 calories and i am stuffed. are you bored yet? so that was 580 calories for the day. got up very late so not enough day for three meals.

Seasoned and browned ground lamb patties, set aside. In the same pan, I added butter and cooked some shallots, red bell pepper, mushrooms and added some flour and chicken broth, simmered till thickened and poured over the reserved lamb patties. Jasmine rice and steamed broccoli were the sides.

Herbs from Provence with lavender made a good meal extraordinary.

No it isn't a pot pie but it was pretty simple in the end. You brown seasoned chicken pieces in a pan, transfer it to a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. Then take it out, drain off the drippings for gravy and put the chicken back in. Then mix together flour, powder, salt, pepper, eggs and milk and pour that over/around the chicken and bake for another 45 minutes.

You are making almost a Yorkshire Pudding around the chicken.

If you want the recipe let me know and I'll PM it to you. It is from one of those 1970's recipe file sets.

Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."
