Seafood Potpies. And shirtless men?

After much consideration, just to boost my traffic, I’m going to post pictures of half-naked men.  Anyone object?  See, on my Facebook page, I could post the most delicious recipe and get 3 likes.  When I post a picture of a well built gentleman, with a screwdriver and no shirt, my page goes crazy.  And I was thinking, man I wish my blog page got this much traffic!! Forget the Seafood Pot Pie and Snowman Ornaments, shirtless men seems to be the way to go!

I’m kidding, of course.  You’re stuck with Seafood Pot Pie.  Snowman Ornaments will be coming up on a later post.  They are currently a work in progress and glitter is everywhere, totally driving the ol’ man crazy! It’s great!

Besides driving the ol’ man crazy, things have been busy.  I did photos of my nieces and my daughter and the cutest lil’ newborn this weekend.  When your youngest is 9, you forget how little they are at 16 days old.  She was precious.  Naturally, Ms. Autumn and my nieces are precious too.  I mean, they are related to me.

So precious. Right?  Every morning, I ask Autumn how she slept.  Why? Have no clue. Probably to see how bitchy, crabby, I meant crabby, she will be for the day.  One day last week, this is how the conversation went:

Me: How’d you sleep?

Autumn: My back hurts. My bed is too hard.  I need a sleep number bed. Yeah.  That would be perfect.  I would probably set it at 25.

Me: Staring at her with the blank look of “where the eff do you get these things from?”  I don’t even know what to say to that.  I almost told her to ask Santa for it. Total DUH moment.  She knows I’m Santa.

Didn’t I mention you were stuck with Seafood Potpies?  “Stuck” is a little harsh.  They really are delicious.  And the vegetables are cooked right in. The kids can’t possibly pick out every single pea. See my rant about peas here.

 

Seafood Potpies

  • 1/2 (1 sheet)        Pepperidge Farm frozen puff pastry sheet (thawed for about 40 minutes)
  • 1 can (10.75 oz) Condensed cream of onion soup
  • 1 can (10.75 oz) Condensed cream of shrimp soup
  • 1/2 C                      Milk
  • 1-10 oz pkg          Mixed frozen vegetables, thawed
  • 1-12 oz bag          Frozen cooked baby shrimp, thawed
  • 6 oz                       Imitation crabmeat
  • Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  1. Heat the oven to 375*F. Spray individual serving ramekins with cooking spray. (We use 10 oz ramekins and get 5 servings)
  2. Roll out the thawed pastry sheet on a little flour.  Use the large (4″ or 5″ maybe?) biscuit cutter to cut out round circles of puff pastry goodness.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the soups, milk, vegetables (including the peas), shrimp and crabmeat.
  4. Spoon into the ramekins. Put a puff pastry circle of goodness on each one. Sprinkle with a little Parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

    Adding herbs like oregano, thyme, etc. would pop up the recipe!

      Absolutely! Which I would totally love, but the kids like things that aren’t “fancy”. And trust me, they think adding sort of anything is fancy!
