Personalized Pot Pies

For some reason, this week has turned out to be the week from hell.  There just doesn't seem to be enough time or energy to get everything done that needs to be done.  It is REALLY nice to have Brooke here to cook for us.  If she had not been here today I suspect that dinner would have consisted of leftover Easter candy.  But, since she was here, we had a very good dinner.

Brooke decided that she was going to use up all of the miscellaneous veggies in the fridge by making pot pies.  The problem is that part of what was left was mushrooms; I despise mushrooms and did not want them in my pie.  Brooke is a vegetarian.  Weber wanted chicken in his.  I would rather chicken than mushrooms.  So the final order was

     Brooke - Veggies with mushrooms
     Weber - Veggies with mushrooms and chicken
     Me - Veggies, no mushrooms, and chicken

To keep it all straight, Brooke put our initials in the crust of our personal pies.

These were really good!! With turnips and parsnips and leeks and carrots and broccoli and onions and celery and potatoes and chicken, who needs mushrooms???
