Tempt My Tummy Tuesday ~ A Cowboys Pot Pie Recipe

Blessed with Grace

OK So I know I promised Chili but I couldn't resist making this recipe first. Chili tomorrow, I'll post next week! I know Cole was totally bummed, until he saw this come out with his initials and I was back on top as Mom of the year (oh stop laughing). So here I go recipe #2 using French's Foods and a can of Manischewtiz Beef broth. Now I've made a version of this before but I switched it up, hope you enjoy!

My Gift Basket, Thank you again Michaelene for the amazing opportunity!
Here's what I started with!
What the recipe called for Red Wine!
Good way to use up wine that you don't drink, not a big drinker or a red fan.
Perfect for recipes!
Throw it all together and then put a together like a pie!
I love putting the boys initials as the vents.
Cole & Caden loved it!
