Veggie Pot Pie

I happen to be married to the sweetest boy in the world. The sweetest boy in the world, despite being a carnivore, happens to delight in my meatfree cooking.

However, his favorite all-time meal happens to be chicken pot pie. I decided to take it on last week and make him a veggie pot pie.

Not only did he love it, and eat way too much way too quickly, he is begging for an encore. Join me in this yummy delight. I am going to try adding other meat alternatives next time. Tell me in the comments how you make your potpie.
